Dog Battles Tennis Ball In Swimming Pool (VIDEO)

Some dogs are fearless, fearsome and majestic. Others are wimpy wussies who'd much rather be curled up in front of a fire than running about after some rabbits.

This pooch here looks like he might have a wet foot in the latter category. Trying desperately to get a tennis ball floating in a swimming pool, he paws over and over and over at the damn thing, but nothing seems to work.

What he could do, of course, is get back in the pool and grab it with his mouth, but no, that's not an option for this hound. He's been in the water, he's not going in for a second time - despite obviously being quite wet already.

But as we say, not all mutts are this cowardly. Check out this video gallery of dogs performing awesome tricks to see what we mean...
