While surfing the net today I read an article about a man who was on a boat with his dog when it capsized. As the water was cold and the man's dog did not have a life preserver, the man immediately put the dog on top of the flipped vessel. The owner stayed in the water keeping the boat steady until help arrived. The owner was so concerned with his fur friend's welfare that he made sure that the rescuers tended to the dog first.

I am sure my parents' would be just as caring if we were placed in the same situation...even if it was my *sigh* brother Riley.
