This video is from a beach in southwestern Turkey and shows a woman throwing a ball for her dog while her child crawls around in the sand.
But as is typical of young children this one is on the go fast even though it's still crawling .. and in just a few seconds the kid is heading straight towards the ocean.
The spaniel, stops playtime immediately, runs down to the kid and plops down in the sand between the child and the waves, drawing the family's attention just as the adventurous youngster is about to hit the water. Great job and hopefully well rewarded with a treat later!!
