Video | Dog swimming with wild dolphins

Share

Kira is an ordinary dog with extraordinary friends. Each day she leaves boring canine pursuits on the shore and heads out to sea to do something much more exciting–swim with wild dolphins.

Video-of-dog-who-swims-with-dolphinsKira, a black Labrador, has recently become a web sensation after a video of her swimming with dolphins off the coast of South Africa went viral. Thanks to this cool video from Earth Touch, we can see Kira fearlessly jumping into the water to say hello to a group of dolphins. She then paddles furiously to keep up with them, with one of the dolphins swimming circles around her.

Kira works as a “dolphin spotter” with her owner, Noleen Withers, according to the Daily Mail. Withers says that the dog has “a fond love of the ocean.”  The magical dog and dolphin encounter in this video was filmed in the pristine waters of Ponta do Ouro in Mozambique.

About the Grandmothers Of The Disappeared

When Argentina’s military overthrew Peron’s government, they abducted any suspected opponents, and hundreds of children were either kidnapped along with their parents or born in captivity. Early in the reign of terror, a human rights organization called the “Grandmothers of the Plaza de Mayo” was founded.

These grandmothers kept a vigil in the plaza across from the military offices, picketing for the return of their children and grandchildren. Their natural dignity made them a powerful symbol of resistance. But they were more than that–they were a fully operational intelligence organization, gathering an enormous amount of evidence about the fate of the disappeared.

The Story

The geneticist is Nancy, about 35, attractive, affable and idealistic. And when she sets her sights on a worthy goal, she puts her very heart and soul and endless supply of vitality into achieving it. She’s a well respected researcher and professor at UC Berkeley.

Nancy thoroughly enjoys the experience, finds the eagerness of the Argentine students very rewarding, is enthralled with the culture and its earthy people and makes many friends.

Then in the spring of  1977, the serenity of the campus is suddenly shattered. We see images of violence and mayhem, as the military attacks the college and the city. They overthrow Peron’s government and go on a rampage of kidnapping, torture and murder that eventually leaves 12,000 people dead. Continue reading »
