The dog days of summer are upon us and when it gets hot outside, Otto the dog hits the waves. The seven-year-old canine hits the water behind his owner's power boat. And as you can see, he is pretty cool out there with his shades on. Otto's owner takes him everywhere... on sea and land. Whether it's riding bikes or even on the back of a moped.
