Sometimes, our pets are a lot smarter than we think. Just ask this clever dog named Abby!

In the video below, posted on August 4, 2015, the black dog is outside by her owner’s backyard pool. She realizes that her beloved tennis ball is too far away and sees it bobbing around in the middle of the water.

Suddenly, a great idea rushes into the dog’s mind and she immediately takes action.

Her eager paws reach out to grab a bodyboard floating nearby. She wants to pull it toward her and use it as a mode of transportation. She keeps stretching her arms out, trying to make contact with the bodyboard and when she finally does, she makes her first move.

Abby leaps onto the bodyboard and finds her balance. She then shifts her weight around the board, moving it forward. As she inches closer to the ball, she grows even more excited.

Once Abby approaches the ball in the middle of the pool, she plucks it out of the water with her teeth.

Abby uses the same technique to slowly move her bodyboard to the end of the pool where she can exit with her rescued tennis ball.

Once she is close enough to the wall, her owner records her jumping off of the bodyboard and onto dry land where she belongs.

Check out the video below to see Abby’s journey and please SHARE if you think she’s super smart!
