That water looks ruff! Funny underwater pictures capture dogs diving headfirst into swimming pool

The water might look a bit ruff, but these dogs are clearly enjoying themselves as they leap headfirst into a swimming pool. The cute canines can be seen pulling a host of funny expressions as they dive into the hydrotherapy pool in West Sussex. Virtual reality filmmaker Jonny Simpson-Lee captured the steely determination of the playful pups during a trip to the White Orchid Canine Hydrotherapy Centre in West Chiltington, in West Sussex, England. The 45-year-old, who developed a passion for underwater photography after learning to scuba-dive, said working with dogs was a fun and rewarding experience. Johnny first started snapping underwater dogs after a chance encounter with a hydrotherapist who works with dogs and who was looking for ways to raise money for charity. (Caters News)
