Midget2000x was kayak fishing in Florida on a nice sunny day when he noticed some splashing behind him. It was a dog, which was very odd being how far from shore they were. Luckily, he was there and was able to bring the pup back to land to recuperate. He believes that the dog Barney ran from his owner when they were hit by a drunk driver while out for a walk.
Update 1/10/12: The video is covered by CNN’s Jeanne Moos.
