Interesting Photo of the Day: Dog Walks on Water

Everyone thinks their pet is the smartest, the cutest, the cleverest. But photographer Ken Watson‘s German shepherd may have a bit of an advantage — she can walk on water!

Well, at least it appears that she can. Watson explains the natural conditions that enabled this remarkable (and un-Photoshopped) photo:

“Everyone loves their pet dog – but can your dog walk on water? Mine can. This photo was taken on December 31, 2002. The Rideau was experiencing some unseasonably warm weather and a layer of water had formed on top of the ice covered lake, resulting in a mirror-like surface. In this photo, doggie is on high alert since a ball is about to be tossed.”

“The Rideau”  refers to the Rideau Canal in Ontario, Canada, a UNESCO World Heritage Site and National Historic Site of Canada.
