Volkswagen Dog Fish

To the sounds of the Ben E. King song, “Stand by Me”, a young man takes his dog/fish to the beach. The fish-tailed canine responds to his best friend’s whistle, goes surfing, plays ball, chases cats, shows affection, hangs out with the local fisherman, and jumps with ease into the back of the Volkswagen SpaceFox.
