Irie the superhero

Our dog Irie saved another dog's life one day.

While at the dog beach in San Diego, we came across an old man calling for his golden retriever, who was swimming in the water. The man seemed really worried, so we asked if he needed any help. He said his dog was 10 years old with neurological problems and narcolepsy, and had been swimming in the same spot for too long.

I called for Irie, pointed at the dog in the water and told her "Fetch!" Irie immediately jumped in, swam straight to the dog, did three circles around him and then slowly started swimming back to shore. The golden retriever followed her, and she checked back the whole way to make sure he was coming.

Once arriving on the beach, the golden retriever collapsed in exhaustion, and the owner needed to take him to the vet right away. We helped carry him to the car and watched them safely drive away.

Irie's such a good dog.
