Scuba-Doo: Boniface, the diving dachshund
A professional diver in Russia is trying to teach his dachshund to scuba dive.
Sergei Gorbunov of Vladivostok, Russia, has equipped his dachshund, Boniface, with a wetsuit and helmet designed to allow him to breathe underwater.
In a recent demonstration, Boniface barked eagerly as Gorbunov stuffed him into a wetsuit, affixed the helmet, then submerged him in the water. The dog emitted a few whines, according to an Associated Press report.
“Underwater, I don’t think he experiences any stress,” Gorbunov said.
