We can't make this stuff up, seriously. Meet 'Ding Ding' the smooth black and tan Dachshund who hails from Wuchang in central China's Hubei province. Ding Ding is causing quite a stir in his homeland, as he is now known as a bit of a celebrity after taking up fishing! Excerpt from Ananova:
"I often swim in Donghu Lake, and used to leave him on the bank to take care of my clothes and valuables. But he couldn't stop jumping into the water and swimming with me," his human, Mr. Lin, said.
"When he was swimming, he would bite anything floating in the water, like bottles, foam rubber, or dead fish, and bring them back to the bank.
"But several days ago he suddenly started catching live fish from the lake. Within 10 minutes he had brought back three big fish, weighing more than 3kg."
