Safety first and of course that includes everybody on board! This dog was watching carefully how his man- and lady-boss were guiding their boat through the locks of the Hjälmaren Canal.
The 13 km long canal connects Lake Hjälmaren with Lake Mälaren in Sweden. It was taken into use in 1639, aimed to transport iron from the Central Swedish Mining District to Stockholm. In total 9 canal locks lower the boats 22 metres down to Lake Mälaren.
