Whose Best Friend?

Posted:

In Westfield, Mass., in August, and near Eureka, Calif., in November, families of dog owners drowned trying to save their pets, who'd fallen into a lake and the ocean, respectively. The Massachusetts couple jumped out of their boat in Hampton Ponds State Park to save their terrier; the California couple and their son were swept out to sea after their dog swam too deep into the surf to fetch a stick. Both dogs survived.
