Intermission: Missing Dog Swims to Find Help

The only happy part of a very sad story.


Fair warning: This is the only happy part of a very sad story. A woman was out walking her Viszla hound Saturday afternoon when she was struck and killed by a drunk driver. The dog, named Barney, was also injured in the accident.

A day later, a fisherman kayaking far off-shore, noticed a splashing noise behind him and saw what looked like a dog swimming toward him. Barney had evidently entered the water a half mile away, and was near exhaustion by the time the fisherman pulled him aboard. He has since been returned to his owners.
