Dog Lost At Sea Played Real Life Castaway

A doggone feel good story:

Sophie Tucker, a pet dog lost at sea, played real life Castaway for 4 months.

According to Sophie Tucker's owners, she went overboard in rough seas off the northeast Queensland Australia coast in November, 2008. Her family believed she had drowned. Apparently, Sophie Tucker swam 5 miles to almost uninhabited St Bees Island.

When island rangers first spotted her, the dog looked in bad shape, but with each sighting Sophie Tucker looked healthier and rangers found feral baby goat carcasses on the island.

Last week, rangers captured the dog and Sophie Tucker's owners contacted the rangers with the faint hope it was their long lost dog.

It was.

Amazing what an animal can do with a little dogged determination.
