Izzie's New Hero

From BBC News-Australian canine castaway found.

Sophie Tucker - named after the famous US entertainer - vanished as Jan and Dave Griffith sailed through stormy waters off Queensland last November. But unknown to her grieving owners, the plucky dog survived a long swim across shark-infested waters to an island. There she lived on a diet of baby goats until being found by visiting rangers.The Griffiths were amazed to hear of the discovery and have now been reunited with their pet."She surprised us all," said Jan Griffith. "She was a house dog and look what she's done, she has swum over five nautical miles, she has managed to live off the land all on her own. We wish she could talk, we truly do."

Comment:  Now that's a brave and smart dog.  I wouldn't mind having her as a friend.  I only hope she doesn't think I'm a baby goat.  SHE sometimes confuses me with a baby sheep and calls me Lamb Chops.


  1. Izzy I am sure Sophie T would never make such a dreadful mistake!
