Cottagers love their dogs. And most of our cottage dogs love the water. But when your dog jumps in, do you know what's going on down there, under the surface of the lake? Photographer Seth Casteel gives us a glimpse into your dog's in-the-drink cottage life in his new book, Underwater Puppies, a sequel to the bestseller Underwater Dogs. Some dogs and breeds are better swimmers than others, of course, so take care when you introduce your own little puppy to the wet world. All of the puppies and dogs in these shots had swim lessons before they were photographed and no pets were harmed. Treats after the swim? You bet!
