I love dogs. One thing I find so appealing about them is their remarkable curiosity. I know dogs who simply can’t sniff enough things in this life to be satisfied. Some of 9/11’s greatest heroes were dogs (and their handlers) who worked tirelessly to find people in the wreckage. This is to say nothing of the countless other natural disasters in which dogs have saved so many lives, including earthquakes, tsunamis, hurricanes, and more. When dogs and humans work together, we can accomplish amazing things. Just ask the ancient people who domesticated dogs to help with tasks like hunting, herding, and protecting home.
With all that in mind, maybe it shouldn’t be surprising that so many dogs have found messages in bottles–but it still flips me out! So here’s a post dedicated to the pups who have found some truly fascinating messages in bottles–and at least one who saved a life.
