Dog on a Log

The story that made us smile this week was the one that made the news about the dog on a log.  You see the NZ navy were doing some jobs up off the coast of Auckland after a heavy storm, when a sailor spotted a large log floating by with a do just standing there.  So they sent a rubber boat out and a couple of sailors rescued him, and they took him back to the island close to where he was found to get him to a vet.  Someone on sure knew who he belonged to, so they sent him home safe and sound.

This made the news at home and around the world, cos we all love a good rescue story.  Turns out Tiny was out on a boat with his owner, who spotted the log and was inspecting it, not realising that Tiny had climbed out of the boat and was missing.  So he carried on and went to the shops, and was going to head back out to see where the dog was (typical bloke).

Good on you Tiny - hope you got a big feed when you got home!!

Have a great Sunday - hope you have some fun!!

  5. Poppy, dear, this is a very good example of why you must be very careful when you go outside to explore. True, it's an unusual experience to be lost on a log going downstream on a flooded river -- but even a big, smart girl cat like yourself is safer on her side of the fence.

  8. Hope his owner learned he needs to mind the dog and not the brew.

  9. We think Tiny needs a new owner. Imagine not realizing your dog is not with you and going off to the shops and whatnot. So happy he was found alive and well. Meow, jessica

  10. My first reaction is to 'ditto' Eileen's comment, but of course we weren't there to see what happened. At least the story has ended well for Tiny, and fingers (and paws) crossed nothing like this ever happens to him again.
