Caught on Camera: Dog Swims With Dolphins

This four-legged friend is going viral all the way from the African coast.

Kira, the black Labrador dubbed the "dolphin-spotter," is all suited up to play with her favorite flippered friends. It's safety first for the pup as she leaps into the water donning a life jacket.

According to the Earth Touch website, where the video was originally posted, Kira takes the plunge into the pristine waters of Ponta do Ouro in Mozambique and paddles toward the pack of dolphins.

"Kira is an ordinary dog with extraordinary friends," according to the website. "Each day, she leaves boring canine pursuits on the shore and heads out to sea to do something much more exciting: swim with wild dolphins."

Kira's owner, Noleen Withers, is no stranger to dolphins either. She is the founder of the Somente Aqua Dolphin Centre in Ponta de Ouro. Apparently, the canine is such an important member of the center that it even named one of their snorkeling boats after her.

"Kira is named after Noleen's Labrador, who accompanies most of the dolphin excursions and we like to call her the dolphin spotter," the center's website explains. "As Kira has a fond love for the ocean and the dolphins of Ponta it was decided to name our new boat after her."
