It’s entirely possible that nothing is cuter than watching a dog swim, expect maybe watching one dive with wild abandon. Thanks to photographer Brooke Mayo, the rarely seen view of dogs at play underwater is on it’s way. The freedom of the dive, the weightlessness of the plunge to retrieve a toy, the unbridled joy of being a dog at play – it’s all here.

Diving Doggies:  A Celebration of Play Underwater, Mayo’s soon-to-be released book captures her love for man’s (and woman’s) best friend one photo at a time. She explains, “they are inspiring and funny, and may tempt you to get to know your doggie friend in a way you never have before. They’ve certainly changed the direction of my life and allowed me to explore my creativity behind the lens I never dreamed of.“

Catch a sneak peek of Mayo’s fabulous underwater dog photos online at her website or contact her North Carolina studio to book your dog’s very own “Doggie Day in the Life” portrait session.
