Swings? Monkey bars? Slide? So many choices, oh my! These guys decided to take a ride on the wild side: They picked the slide.

The first golden slides down the chute without a hitch, but his puppy pal gets cold feet. Hey, we get it. It can be scary and claustrophobic going down a dark tube.

But when Dog No. 1 sees his pal turn scaredy cat, he decides not to let it slide. Instead he takes his buddy's leash in his mouth and guides him down the slide like the true, loyal companion a dog should be. Go doggy go!

They say teamwork makes the dream work, and that certainly seems to be true here!
