This hilarious video shows the moment a "show-off" dog owner attempted to leap across a flooded path - only to slip and fall flat on his back in the mud.


Harry Way, 19, was out for a walk with his girlfriend Abi Chamberlain, 20, and their nine-month-old golden Labrador puppy Milo on Sunday, in the wake of Storm Dennis.

When the couple came across fast-flowing flood water blocking their usual path, Abi cautiously tiptoed through the current to the other side - but Harry was feeling a bit more daring.

Egged on by excitable Milo - who was clearly keen to leap across to the other side - Harry took a leap of faith across the flood water, and ended up skidding onto his back in the wet mud.

Abi can be heard bursting out into laughter as her hapless boyfriend lies in the mud - while Milo bounds across the water and playfully leaps on his fallen owner.

The video was captured in Chepstow, on the border between Monmouthshire in Wales, and Gloucestershire.

Abi, who runs her own luxury hampers business, said:

"I found it so funny. He's always trying to one-up me on everything and he obviously thought, 'I can show off here.'"
"He's really annoyed today because I won't stop teasing him about it."

She added that the flooding in Chepstow has only got progressively worse since Saturday, leaving her and fitness instructor Harry working from home.

Speaking about the dog walk on Sunday, Abi said:

"Everything was flooded, including the footpath we usually take the dog along. Milo loved it, though. It's his favorite walk ever."
"We had to shove him in the shower when we got home - all our carpets are cream, so it was a bit of a disaster getting him through the house into the shower."

Sometimes I think back to a teacher I had when I was a kid who demanded to know whether any of us were "raised in a barn" in response to crappy behavior. Namely littering. She hated littering. Can you blame her? It's a horrible habit and some people do it with no sense of shame. She dedicated much of her time to telling students to pick up after themselves and dispose of things properly. For that, I'm thankful.

But why didn't anyone else get the memo? The trash I see on the streets is obscene.

I love presents. I try to hide my enthusiasm, and I do my best to appease the greater public by saying "it's the thought that counts." But that is a WHOLE lie. I don't just love gifts, I love great gifts. And if you go rogue from my lists, please keep a receipt. It's just plain rude to divert from what the recipient has requested.

This thought process has emerged from experience. I have received some trash presents over the years and now I'm too old to pretend you just went crazy while shopping. Like... "do you even know me?!"

I'm still on the fence about this whole extraterrestrial situation. I need more proof. Now I'm not naive enough to think that in this vast, endless universe only the human race exists. I just need proof, tangible, solid, didn't see it from my trailer through beer goggles proof.

I also need proof about the afterlife, another out there topic. Truth be told, I've never been that into this whole conversation. I've got enough daily problems on this planet, let alone worrying about making Will Smith's biggest hits into documentaries and not just popcorn/comedy space farce.

But let's compare thoughts...
