Police Dog Rides Aquaplane Behind Speeding Power Boat
ONE of the sensations of a recent water circus held at Atlantic City, N. J., was the performance of Rex, Belgian police dog, who gave a demonstration of plain and fancy aquaplaning behind a speeding-power boat.
The secret of Rex’s success lies in his remarkable sense of balance. Although the plank may skitter across the waves and sometimes bounce him six inches in the air, Rex has no difficulty in regaining his foothold. He seems to enjoy doing his stunts and is possibly the only dog in the United States who performs a half mile from shore on the open ocean.
