A dog in Queensland, Australia, found itself on a strange ride this week when its owner fell overboard and left the animal doing doughnuts on an out-of-control motorized dinghy.

The man, who was driving the boat offshore from the city of Townsville, swam to shore for help after he fell overboard, according to the YouTube description of the video above.

The dog appears surprisingly calm throughout the ordeal. Perhaps he was hypnotized into a trance, or maybe he was just curious about how long the boat would keep spinning.

Instagram user @shinpow16 captured the ordeal -- including the dog's eventual rescue.
