Saved by Elvis

Is it just me, or is this story pretty funny?

"A bartender, tour-boat engineer and an Elvis impersonator helped rescue a dog named Tucker, who was paddling alone in the middle of Lake Champlain near Juniper Island on Tuesday evening. "

I can just see the dog swimming for his life, when he spots Elvis reaching out to him to come aboard. He probably thought he'd died and gone to doggy heaven!

The story ends very happily:
"The dog's owner was spotted circling the lake in a speedboat with a similar dog aboard. The crew flagged her down and instructed her to meet them at the dock. In the meantime, passengers were sharing the buffet with the dog. "

Bet the buffet made the death-defying swim worthwhile! Those all you can eat cruise buffets? Sure beats kibble and boiled chicken!
