Canadian sailor John Batchelor, 72, is missing in the Caribbean and presumed drowned

Canada News: Canadian sailor John Batchelor, 72, is missing in the Caribbean and presumed drowned - thestar.com

Dingo lay curled, close to death, on a sailboat bobbing in Bahamas’ turquoise waters. A deep gash on his hind leg. Protruding ribs. Bulging eyes. The severely dehydrated 60-pound dog had somehow survived alone on the boat for nearly three weeks without his best friend.... Click the link to read more.

Man, that sucks. Judging from the article you were my kind of guy:

Quote:
Friends describe him as polarizing, both personable and caustic. He looked like an old Ernest Hemingway with thick hair, a full beard and sun-soaked skin. He even had an unpublished manuscript on board — “The Drunken Monkey” — that he wrote.
Quote:
He didn’t own a house because that tied him to the land, and land tied him to the rules — in 2002, he listed an Oshawa harbour dock as his home. He loved the freedom and peace of the sea. He taught social studies and French at a Barrie high school, but “didn’t really get along with other teachers.”
Fair winds on your new journey John Batchelor.

Anybody who saves an old sea dog and pays the vets bills deserves a little help.
I sent a couple of bucks.
How about it?
