Two dogs are standing in a canoe, crying and floating down the river all by their lonesome. One might think, at first glance, that maybe the owner is lying down in the canoe taking a nap, but that’s not the case with the situation at hand. These two pups are alone, stranded, and have no visible means of escape. This scenario is something that you do not see every day. In fact, if someone were to encounter this exact scene, they would probably not believe their eyes.
How does one even begin this rescue mission? Do you swim out to the canoe, hoping your strokes will be strong enough to pull the boat and defeat the fast-moving water? Or do you run for help, praying you don’t lose the location of the watercraft? How do you save two precious fur babies who are panic-stricken, alone, and too scared to jump out of the canoe into the fast-moving current toward dry land?
With people gathering on shore, there are plenty of eye-witnesses to the valiant efforts of the unexpected hero who enters the water: not a human but another four-legged creature, an incredibly brave dog named Robbie. Swimming with all of his might, he makes his way through the swift current and over to the canoe where both pups remain. Rusty, one of the stranded dogs, nudges the blue rope into the water, where the swimming hero proceeds to grab this lifeline. Padding through the high water, this incredible canine finally tows the grateful friends to shore and everyone is safe. It’s truly a fabulous rescue that you won’t want to miss!
