Adorable moment dog interacts for the first time with a friendly whale News

This is the wonderful moment when a dog for the first time ever interacts with a friendly whale – he climbs next to the ship.

The video clip shows Skipper, a one-year-old Australian Shepherd, jumping on deck with excitement as the giant mammal sprints to the side of the boat.

Skipper owner Nancy Black, 60, takes the pup on whale watching trips two to three times a week, but this is the first time he’s been able to see the animal up close.

“He loves trekking because he is very social, he loves seeing people and love petting him,” said Nancy, a marine biologist and Monterey Bay resident.
