It was difficult to tell who was more amped up to do some Labor Day Weekend swimming: Tyler Seguin or his dog.

The Dallas Stars forward, and his pup Gerry both took a leap into a pool at the exact same time, an Instagram video posted to Seguin's account showed.

Instagram from @tseguin92: You could say the little man is a little excited to finally be in Dallas

Seguin had a brief staring contest with Gerry and even tried to fake him out a few times in the video clip, but unlike some defenders out on the ice, the dog didn't go for the deke.

After the pair plunged into the pool, Gerry qucikly swam up to a laughing Seguin, prvoing the duo are truly best friends.

So with swimming conquered, maybe the next thing Gerry will learn is how to handle the puck like his owner.
