Re: Dog that went overboard 3 miles out to sea found alive on beach
Very lucky for the dog (and owner). I completely appreciate why people travel with pets, and I will not say they are doing anything wrong, but it's not for us. Our dog passed away just this January from cancer, we have been dog people our entire lives. However, now that we are getting more seriously into the cruising dream we have opted to not bring another dog into our lives. Honestly nothing fills me with dread more than the thought of a dog falling overboard in the dark and it swimming around seeing the lights from the boat getting further away until it's alone in the dark and it's fate. I know that's a bleak way to look at it, and yes pets should be tied off and looked after properly, but that 1\4 second when a mistake or accident happens would haunt my nightmares.
Some youtube videos, nothing fancy
