A DOG joined a pod of dolphins for a frolic in the Dawesville Cut on Friday.

Community Newspaper Group deputy editor Lucy Jarvis said she was in the right place at the right time to capture the amazing moment.

“I was taking photos in the Port Bouvard marina of a pod of dolphins,” she said.

“I followed them to the Dawesville Cut and saw a dog swimming out to join them.

“They played for about 10 minutes.

“The dog seemed in heaven and the dolphins were loving it.”

Spotted a pod of dolphins near Dawesville yesterday AND THEN… a dog swam up to play with them. Would be wagging my tail with joy if I had one too! Visit Peel, Mandurah Coastal Times, Western Australia

Allan Whittingham, from Dawe’s Bait and Tackle, said there had been a lot of dolphins in the channel feeding on yellow-eyed mullet.

South West Boat Sales receptionist Sharin Mills said her kelpie Marley had formed a strong bond with the dolphins over the years.

“Marley used to stand on the jetty waiting for them,” she said.

“She would get really excited when the dolphins would come in.

“We’d try to stop her, but when she could, she’d dive in and swim with them.”

Sadly, Marley passed away last year.
