A talented dog is her owner’s best friend – because she helps cook, clean and tend the garden for her owner.

Chloe, a Newfoundland dog, also lends her paws to the shopping and recycling for her 75-year-old owner Hazel Carter, who has a muscle condition which means she struggles to do things herself.

The four-year-old dog fetches food from the pantry, puts waste in the bin and even loads the washing machine with clothes and detergent.

These playful dolphins stole the show when they participated in one of the world’s top surfing competitions to ride the waves themselves.

The animals turned up as global surfing legends descended on Jeffreys Bay, South Africa, for the latest stop on the Association of Surfing Professionals world tour.

The 12-day J-Bay Open saw surfers compete for dominance off the shores of the Eastern Cape, famous for its dramatic waves and large numbers of bottlenose dolphins.

But things took a surprise twist when a school of almost a dozen dolphins set out to show they were the undisputed kings of the sea in these images captured by 62-year-old Stan Blumberg.

‘Two surfers were in the water at the time when a few pods of dolphins swam past and a few surfed the waves as they usually do, without breaking the surface,’ he said – then they broke through and put on their show.

He added: ‘In my 62 years of living at the coast, I have surfed, scuba dived, been a member of a surf lifesaving club and can honestly say that I have never before seen dolphins surf like this before.’
