Scuba-Diving Dog (VIDEO)

A dog is finding fame this week all the way in Vladivostok, Russia, as his owner has successfully taught the dog scuba diving!

The russian man has taught his dachshund, named Boniface, how to scuba dive and even equipped his canine best friend with a custom made diving suit and helmet. The dog is well trained and behaved perfectly as he was suited up, and followed through on the scuba dive though it was heard to make some whining sounds underwater. The owner reassured onlookers that there was no unpleasantness for his furry adventurer, though.

Click below for more photos of the adventurous dog, and video of a cat who pulled off the same trick once in the past.

In a recent demonstration, Boniface barked eagerly as Gorbunov readied the equipment and uncomplainingly endured being hung upside-down as Gorbunov fitted the suit on him."
