When Tom the dog's owner asks him if he'd like to go on the slide, the pooch looks like he's died and gone to heaven. He immediately runs up the "Helterskelter" piece of playground equipment and then slides down like an excited first grader. This is a dog who would appreciate recess.

According to Tom's owner, he didn't train the pup to perform the trick. Instead, the dog just followed him up the slide one day. At first Tom was afraid to go down the slide. But after taking a trip in his owner's lap he got the hang of, and now climbs up and slides down on his belly whenever he can.

Apparently, Tom also climbs trees. We're not sure how the fun-loving dog feels about water, but we'd like to see his reaction to going down a giant water slide. It seems like he'd really enjoy that kind of thrill.
