Re: Man saves dog then wife

I think the husband and the dog were swimming towards the shore and thought the wife was swimming behind them, when in fact her jack line snagged the rudder. A dog in a life jacket is almost always better off than a human due to higher buoyancy and higher endurance.

Be kind, for everyone you meet is fighting a hard battle.

Re: Man saves dog then wife

What's your point?

I, myself, personally intend to continue being outspoken and opinionated, intolerant of all fanatics, fools and ignoramuses, deeply suspicious of all those who have "found the answer" and on my bad days, downright rude.

I would assume this is always the correct etiquette for these sort of situations.

Shouldn't this be moved to Her Sailnet?
