    Right?

    I mean, honestly, it's not the dog's fault. THIS IS WHY YOU HAVE THEM ON LEASH LIKE YOU'RE SUPPOSED TO. If anything, I just hope the dog finds a home with an owner that actually cares enough about him to be responsible about it.

    It speaks volumes about him that he loved his dog so much that he didn't think about himself before he jumped in to save the dog. RIP Michael.

    I have a friend that saw 2 dogs that someone had stranded on a rock in the middle of a rapid river. She saved them. Those dogs were so sweet and very much loved. She took good care of them and they were able to live out their lives with her. I hope they eventually forgot about being abandoned.
