Everyone knows a water dog, a pooch who cannot get out of the water, who loves a swim and trails the smell of wet dog all through your house.
However, even the most aquatic of water dogs pales in comparison to Buddy, the Shitzu-cross-Maltese who can wakeboard.
Owned by Jack Firth, seven-year-old Buddy has "always been a water dog" and loves every minute he can spend in the water.
Mr Firth said Buddy's been wakeboarding on the dam for nearly two years now, since the family brought him a life jacket.
"Every time dad [David] jumped in the water he followed him in, we couldn't get him back in the boat so we threw him on the board," he said.
"He didn't panic at all and was with dad so he loved it."

Buddy doesn't look much like a Shitzu or Maltese, but the family still love him despite his tendency to be as wet as he can all the time.
"Our family friends had him as a pup and we wanted an inside dog and got a water dog instead," Mr Firth said.
