ONE dog being taken for walkies’ in the park had other ideas about keeping cool in the heatwave London has been enjoying this week.

It slipped its lead and took a dive in the lake in East London’s Victoria Park yesterday (Tuesday)—out of view of the park rangers, of course!

But East London Advertiser photographer Carmen Valino caught this canine dipper in the act.

The dog was soon back on dry land shaking off the pond water, which almost deluged the photographer!
