Last updated: October 23, 2017 at 3:37 am
Hawkeye, a calico cat trained by Gene Alba of California, author of Mutley Goes Diving, a book on a scuba diving dog. Hawkeye’s custom diving equipment, which included a vacuum system built into the bubble to keep his face dry, reportedly cost approximately $20,000 USD. Hawkeye’s canine companion, Mutley, had earlier become the first scuba diving dog. Mutley had originally discovered Hawkeye caught in some chicken wire which led to his rescue by Gene Alba, and his addition to the diving family.
