I was walking along the seawall and I saw this dog on the Aquabus, a small ferry that people use to cross False Creek in Vancouver, BC.

This dog is just above the water, he gets wet, there is some water where he lays down. He doesn’t even have a leash on.

Nobody, neither the passengers nor the pilot of the ferry, pays any attention to him. I wouldn’t be surprised if he was the pilot’s dog. He’s too comfortable and must be used to this.

I do not pretend to be in the same league as Ernst Hemingway but I couldn’t resist calling it after the Old Man and the Sea.
