Dingo, missing sailor's dog, survives

Dingo, sailor’s dog
Canada News: Canadian sailor John Batchelor, 72, is missing in the Caribbean and presumed drowned - thestar.com: "Dingo, the dog owned by missing Canadian sailor John Batchelor . . . Batchelor went missing from his sailboat in the Bahamas on Jan. 19 and hasn't been found. When rescuers climbed aboard, they found only a starving and dehydrated Dingo. . . . Dingo lay curled, close to death, on a sailboat bobbing in Bahamas’ turquoise waters. A deep gash on his hind leg. Protruding ribs. Bulging eyes. The severely dehydrated 60-pound dog had somehow survived alone on the boat for nearly three weeks without his best friend. . . . .Dingo is doing well after being hooked to an IV drip for five days, but his survival has confounded his veterinarian. He somehow lasted at least a week without water and even longer without food. Batchelor’s Canadian friends want to adopt the dog and are raising funds to help repay Moody for the vet bills. Dingo remains with Moody, near the sea, but without his best friend."
