Whitewater BoofDog

This canine is impressively habituated to whitewater river running. I've had one river dawg myself, and I've run a few rivers with other people's river dawgs, but I've never seen anything quite like this. The dog swims downstream through some pretty good whitewater, and when it comes to a shallow drop it lands on the rocks that form the drop, then jumps off the downstream side back into the current. There's an outrage brewing about it in the local canoe club, but frankly I think that the responsible dog owner is probably giving his dog a better life than the average locked-indoors alone all day dog.
