Dog Paddleboards on Lake Erie!

Hamburg, NY (WKBW)

As you travel the shores of Lake Erie...you see a lot of different things on the water. Boats, swimmers, fisherman-- but one dog and his owner caught the eye of many along the Hamburg shoreline Thursday night. Including our Eyewitness News cameras!

"Bella" the dog and Johnathan Seeley were spotted slowly cruising along on their paddleboard late Thursday. Bella is 7-month-old retriever and according to her owner is a "water dog".

The two were taking in the final sunset of the summer season.

People along the shoreline weren't sure what was on the paddleboard-- until they came closer to shore--revealing "Man's Best Friend"--doing a different type of "doggy-paddle".

Seeley said he "makes the most of all seasons in WNY" and knows that it won't be long before the lake is frozen solid!

Let's hope for a long fall season first!
