An excitable dog - nicknamed Spinny, by viewers of Ryde's new seafront webcam - is proving an irresistible morning draw.

Viewers from all over the world have been logging on to watch the dog - and his (or her) understanding owner - wait for the approach of an Island Line train.

  • Scroll down for video and a link to the LIVE webcam!

On 'walkies' along the Esplanade, Spinny (almost certainly not the dog's actual name), sits, waits and then jumps up and turns circles in anticipation.

Isle of Wight County Press reader Sylvia - and Spinny fan - told the County Press, "Everyone wonders if the owner knows how much pleasure he gives to so many people.

"Spinny is a STAR in his own right! Turn the sound up and you hear him bark like crazy!"

Comments from views of the webcam urge others who are passing to 'Do a Spinny!' and 'Do the spinny dance!'.

Watch Spinny in action and watch LIVE at around 8:30am HERE.
