"Mr. Wal" the one-year-old Alsatian dog belongs to Michael and Jane Colston who are very keen on water ski-ing, and is himself very fond of a trip round the lake on a disc-shaped water ski made specially for him.
If he is left on the bank while his master goes skimming across the water he goes nearly mad with envy, and will even begin to swim through the lake in an effort to join in the fun. He has been fond of the water since he accidentally fell in it when ten weeks old.
Michael - an experienced water ski-er who is training for the British championships and who founded the Cambridge University water ski club - takes pity on "Mr. Wal." He puts him on the specially-built circular water ski and off goes "Mr. Wal", the happiest Alsatian in the world, no doubt, as he speeds across the waters of the lake at the Colston's home near Guildford, Surrey.
