Lucky dog, and lucky people for getting him back, maybe they will keep a life jacket on him and keep him below deck when its choppy from now on as the situation could have been avoided, and could have turned out much worse.

Australian Cattle Dogs are amazing. Isn't the oldest age dog title held by an Ozzie? 29 years old or something like that.

Actually, just read that's unconfirmed.

Saw the story on the news at noon.

They showed the dog and the owners together. Loved the story. I agree with BenMax that it does give hope to people who have missing pets.

:pray:to hear more of these stories.
