Last Friday I posted a video about Eko teaching himself to bob for dog toys that sunk at the dog beach. As a number of people pointed out, Ridgebacks are known for their utter disdain of water, but apparently Eko did not get that memo. In fact, it appears that Eko might have been Jacques Cousteau in another life because he is now in love with diving.
As soon as we hit the beach, Eko heads out to chest deep water to search for treasure worth diving for
Last week Eko would only dive nose deep, as seen above, but this week he appears to be much bolder
Eko is a dog on a mission and to get his prize he is willing to put nearly his entire head under water
Check that, he is willing to put his ENTIRE head under water!
If Eko keeps this up it looks like I’m going to have to make an investment:

An incredulous onlooker asked me how I taught a Ridgeback to go under water. I told him the truth, “I didn’t!”
