Jane, a black Labrador, often appears on the social media site, is owned by seven-time US gold medalist Caeleb Dressel who has over 705,000 followers. In a post uploaded last week, the four-legged pup shared her love of the water by taking on the American swimmer in a race.

INTERESTING FACT ABOUT YOUR PET: Dogs that have been spayed or neutered live longer than dogs who are intact.

In a post captioned: "Someone check the time to 25, she's built to float not for speed" the pooch is seen sitting at the edge of the outdoor pool, perched on a starting block.

Caeleb begins to swim backwards holding a red floating toy, to which Jane leaps in and doggy paddles after him.Hardly breaking her stride, the dog manages to keep up with her owner while Caeleb's wife Meghan films the race.

Fellow Olympian Bobby Fink, who won two gold medals in the 2020 Tokyo Olympics, commented: “Still a better start than mine.”Australian swimmer Kyle Chalmers, who won silver in the Men’s 100m freestyle at Tokyo 2020, who said: “So you’re not the only Dressel that would smoke me to 25.”Specialising in butterfly and freestyle, Caeleb won two gold medals at Rio 2016 and five gold medals at this year's Games, including the 100m freestyle against Kyle.

Learn to read your dogs body language. Since no dog I know of is able to mosey up to the kitchen table, pour himself a cup of coffee, and confess to all of the things that annoy, frighten, and stress him out, I suggest that the next best thing is to learn to read your dog’s many signals and body language. This is how your dog will communicate with you.
