It was quite funny to watch as this dog seemed to be running underwater with a stream of bubbles out her nostrils, she used to also swim around with us while snorkeling which was ok till she wanted to climb up on someone and have a rest.
In the end there was a special boat made for her like a small dinghy with no transom so she could get in and out by herself.
The whole concept was in use years later with the next dog which was a Kelpie but not such a good swimmer.
The photo below was taken on the Gt Barrier Reef about 40km off TSV. in 2006.
