Twiggy is a water-skiing rescue squirrel. She will be showing off her skills this weekend at the Eugene Home Show at the Lane County Fairgrounds.

She is 1 year old and her owner, Sydney Garrett, says they do these shows to promote water safety and that Twiggy has a mind of her own.

"The people who do believe that Twiggy is a real squirrel, which she is, they're just amazed by what she can do and they know she does whatever she wants whenever she wants and that she sometimes will ski, sometimes will jump and she loves the crowd," she said.

She will take to the water 11 times total over the three-day show.

The show begins Friday and lasts until Sunday at the Lane Events Center.
