These hilarious pictures show how Sara the dog loves nothing better than to spend her days on the swings at her local park.
In one of the weirdest canine behaviours, the Labrador-Chow cross even goes beserk with excitement when her loving owners mention the word 'swing'.
She even prefers it to going for a walk.
Sara's favourite place in the world is the swing - even the word sends her barking mad
While most would expect a dog's favourite activity to be chasing rabbits or sniffing around woods - happy Sara almost seems to smile as she contentedly rocks back and forth.
Real estate developer Erik Lanier, from Boone, North Carolina, USA, discovered Sara's secret love when he first took kids Elisabeth, nine, Joshua, 11 and Daniel, 15, to the park.
He said: 'Judging by her reaction when we say the "S" word to her I'd say that it's clear that being on that swing is her favourite place.
'She doesn't even go as crazy when we ask if she wants to go for a walk.'

He added: 'I don't know if a dog can smile, but coming from someone who knows her better than anyone, it certainly seems that she does.'
And to make sure Sara stays happy they have to take her down to the park several times a week make sure she gets her 'swing-fix'.
Dad Erik, 42, said he, housewife Jenny, 43, and the rest of the family get startled looks from passers-by as they witness soothed Sarah sat upright in the swing seat - just like a child.
A swing for a scamp: In a reversal of roles, Eric Lanier takes his daughter Elizabeth out for a walk - and Sara out for a swing
'People walking past don't seem to notice at first and then we see them double-take.
'A lot of them come over and laugh with us. They can't believe how much she enjoys it.'
But despite her obvious enjoyment Sara needs to work on her technique.
'She hasn't get the build to be able to keep the momentum going herself so I have to stand by and push.
'I'm sure if she could get up there on her own and rock herself she would do it alone.'
