Watch: Daisy the Daredevil Dog Try to Swim With Bears in Sierra Madre
Remember that 17-year-old who shoved a bear off her garden wall to protect her dogs? Of course you do! Because it was freakinâ bananas. (âI wasnât really thinking, to be honest,â Hailey Morinico later told Extra, stating the obvious.) Well, this week, another California pup needed protecting from bearsâand herself.
Caught on the now-viral video below is the moment that Daisy, an eight-month-old, bell-trained rescue from Sierra Madre, repeatedly requests that her humans let her go outside. Why? To bro down with some bears in the backyard pool. In the clip, Daisyâs owners, newlyweds Tiffany and Kevin Kress, express amusement rather than alarm at the close proximity of the bears. In fact, Kevinâs primary concern is for the safety of an inflatable pool toy. âPlease donât get the unicorn, please don’t get the unicorn,â he pleads through the window.
Throughout it all, Daisy (full name: Daisy Dukes Della Kress) continues hitting her bell to be allowed outside.
Before they were married, Tiffany and Kevin had another one of their backyard bear videos go viral last October. In that one, a cub can be seen pawing at the Kress homeâs back doors. Tiffany was un-phased in that clip too, calmly asking âCan I help you?â
No wonder they opted for bell-training instead of a doggy door…
