rib saves dog

A dog was saved by a rib which was launched from a vessel in the Baltic sea. Drifting ice took the dog about 100 km into the Baltic. The dog was 24 km from the shore when it was rescued

For some reason the link does not find the actual film but if you scroll down you will come across it.

Saw this on the news too. Apparently the dog has been nicknamed 'Seawolf' and that 3 owners have come forward to claim him as theirs! Can imagine the homecoming... "here boy!"
