In a rare and special interspecies moment, an orca whale put on an amazing show for a Labrador on a boat just north of San Juan Island.
It’s a magical moment in which two species signaled their friendship and joy!
Sailor, the Labrador dog, “usually barks at other dogs, but this time he didn’t bark at all,” Kate Butler told Kirotv.com. “He was just wagging his tail. My husband was holding onto him because he wanted to jump in.”
Their boat’s motor was off when the orca whale others swam near them. The couple knew there were whales nearby, but they had no idea that the whales were so close.
“They swam up to us,” Butler said. “It was amazing.”
It looks like Sailor enjoyed the view, too!
The happy encounter was “all in the tail” – with both creatures expressing the same sentiments with different actions – a wag and a whack!
