Rhody...The coastguard said one of the Jack Russell dogs returned to the beach. The other has not been seen since.
I'd risk my life for Duke. It might seem silly, but he is very dear to me and to my wife. She needs at least one of us around.Turbo,
It seems there is http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-sussex-12143079" [Broken] people won't make to try to save their beloved four legged friends... Sad... and heroic...
For at least several seconds upon seeing this, I just made little incoherent noises along the lines of, "AWWWWWHODALITTLEPUPPYAAWW."My wife got a yearly bonus and she got some idea that she might want to buy Duke a new, comfy bed. He already had 3 beds set up so he can sleep anywhere he wants and he was happy. Anyway, I found this really puffy dog-bed, and we think we have a winner. He loves this bed. He climbs on and turns himself around and the bed just wraps up around him.
BTW, he didn't poop out that tennis ball, and the gray under his chin is a skineeze toy. He likes taking toys to bed.
We love Duke! He is a sweetie. He barks and hops around when he sees people. Not to scare them, although some people get scared if they are not "dog people". If they had a clue, they would would note that his tail is wagging like crazy and his butt is wiggling - he doesn't want to scare them off, he wants them to come and say "hi" and rub his ears.Yeah, I love that dog too. Thanks to turbo and his wife.
and guess what the dog's name is? You guessed it, Turbo !When Audrey D'Alessandro and her husband, Sam, walked out of their home on Marco Island, near Naples, Fla., to go fishing, "we saw these two dolphins, and they were splashing and making this big commotion" in a canal behind their vacation home, she said.
Although it is not uncommon to see dolphins swimming through the canal on their way to the Gulf of Mexico, Audrey D'Alessandro said that this time, "they were just there, in one place, splashing water against the canal wall."
When the D'Alessandros went to investigate, they saw that an 80-pound Doberman Pinscher was standing on a sandbar, half-submerged even at low tide. The dog, which disappeared from a nearby home some 12 hours before, was too weak to bark, she added, and could not get back onto land because of a several-foot-high canal wall.

Thought that story might brighten your day, even just a bit.By the time the nurse lowered herself into the canal to get onto the sandbar, the dutiful dolphins were gone, but her husband called firefighters, who helped Audrey D'Alessandro hoist the dog out of the water. Turbo , who was shaking and unable to stand after being rescued, was quickly reunited with his owner -- who got the happy news while putting up lost-dog posters.
A few days later, a thankful Turbo and his owner made the eight-block trip to visit the D'Alessandros, who have a yellow Labrador of their own.
But Audrey D'Alessandro brushed off the island-wide praise the couple received afterward, saying that while "people pulled up to us when were driving and said, 'You're the couple that saved that dog,' I said, 'Yeah, sure.' But I think it was really those dolphins."

What can be said except, "good dogs!!!"Here is an uplifting story from the survivors of the tsunami in Japan,
The owners left with their children without untying their two dogs, in haste and I am sure great fear, the, dogs broke loose somehow and took refuge in the upper part of the house that survived. The owners were overjoyed they survived.
