How good is this, this poor dog lost at sea for 3 weeks, floating around of what was left of her owners home, finally gets rescued, and the biggest miracle of all is her owner is found, this is one lucky dog, a beautiful dog as well.
Two-year-old Ban yapped and jumped into the arms of her owner, a woman in her 50s and a resident of Kesennuma in Miyagi prefecture, a port town severely hit in the March 11 disaster, television footage showed.
A Japan Coast Guard elite rescue unit picked up the dog after spotting it on a floating house roof two kilometres from Kesennuma, in a rescue widely broadcast as a rare happy moment amid the calamity.
The woman recognised her pet, which was kept in an animal shelter following its rescue late last week, after watching NHK: “I recognised her immediately after seeing her face,” she said, hugging the animal.
