Scuba diving dachshund
A Russian man has made the headlines - by teaching his dog to scuba dive in a specially built wetsuit.
Sergei Gorbunov, a professional diver in Vladivostok, had a diving suit complete with helmet made for his pet dachshund Boniface.
In a recent demonstration, Boniface barked eagerly as Mr Gorbunov readied the equipment and fitted the suit on him.
Once underwater, he seemed to have a different outlook, emitting some high-pitched whines.
But Mr Gobunov insisted: "Underwater, I don't think he experiences any stress."
