Japanese Dog Rescued at Sea

Another amazing story from Japan: Three weeks after the earthquake and tsunami struck, the Japanese coast guard rescued a dog floating on wreckage off the northern coast of Kesennuma. Found scurrying atop the roof of a house by helicopter rescuers conducting a three-day search for bodies, the anxious pup disappeared under the roof as the rescuers descended. The dog was eventually lured into a coast guard boat when the helicopter had to abandon the rescue scene to refuel. Sadly, more than 16,000 people are still missing, and officials fear the death toll may be as high as 25,000.
