Some dogs love splashing around in the ocean, jumping in the waves, getting soaked and adoring every second. Golden Retriever Hudson B. Mason is not one of those dogs. So no, this isn’t just a funny dog video. It’s the inspirational tale of one very courageous boy rescuing a favorite toy from the clutches of the scary, splashy water during a day at the beach. To paraphrase Neil Gaiman
, being brave doesn’t mean you aren’t scared. Being brave means you are scared, and you go get that ball anyway.
