Scuba Dooby Doo: Amazing photos of the dogs who love to play fetch underwater

This is what you call the underwater doggy paddle.

Photographer Seth Casteel watched a series of pets diving into the water – many chasing a ball – and the result is lost of gnashers, bubbles and some incredible photographs.

Some dogs looked more menacing as they bared their teeth to grab the balls, but a few of them don’t even have a ball to chase and just look like they are posing for the shoot.

Some dogs appeared to be better swimmers than others, with a few diving down to the bottom of the pool, while the less adventurous preferred to stay nearer the surface.
