I almost forgot about this particular experience. It showcases the amazing ingenuity dogs have here in the Philippines. Whether they were trained to do this, I'm honestly not sure. There weren't any humans nearby to signal them except for the ones at the boat. They simply took turns to dive into the river and catch whatever scraps are being tossed at them -from meat to bread.

Last June, we went to Bohol on a family vacation. One of its main tourists attraction is having lunch at the Loboc River Cruise. Basically, you eat lunch while the boat is cruising around the river.

They're really smart. They take turns swimming towards the boats. These two are staying put because there's already one dog who's diving into the water to obtain the scraps thrown at them.
|It's this dog's turn to get her own share of the daily feast. She dives in to catch the meat as it sinks faster.|
