Funniest boating dogs

Posted on 10 December 2010

We recently requested and received the best boating pet photos in America for the Soundings Salty Paws photo contest. The winners were announced in the January 2011 issue.

That got us wondering: What are some of the best videos of pets aboard?

Turning to that endless font of funny pet videos, we scoured YouTube for the best clips of dogs on boats, dogs jumping off boats and ... well, we're not quite sure what Shiner the chihuahua/pomeranian mix is doing here. Let us know if you figure it out.

Thank you to the following for sharing their videos.

What a great collection of videos! I was shocked when that little dog went after the marine mammals!
