I don't love pets enough to own one...so i'm definitely not chasing after them.

Teen, Parents Swept Out to Sea Trying to Rescue Dog


A teenager and his parents were swept out to sea one by one after the boy tried to save their pet dog, which was overtaken by 10-foot-waves while running on the beach.

The family, which included the parents, son, a daughter and their dog were at Big Lagoon beach, about 30 miles north of Eureka, Calif., on Saturday when the incident occurred, according to the U.S. Coast Guard.

The dog was playing fetch with a stick on the steep beach when the 10-foot-swell came in, according to Coast Guard Lt. Bernie Garrigan.

"The beach is incredibly steep, and we had 10 foot swells... come through there Saturday, and it is really really steep, so the 10 foot waves smashes directly on the beach. They were throwing a stick for the dog, and the dog ran too close to the water and got pulled in," Garrigan said.

When the dog was overtaken by the wave and pulled out into the ocean, the 16-year-old boy went in after him and it was quickly apparent that the boy was in trouble.

The parents then went in to rescue the boy, according to Garrigan. All three were pulled out to sea. The dog managed to find its way back on shore and survived.

The daughter never entered the water, Garrigan said.

The Coast Guard did not release the names of the family members.

The Coast Guard and Humboldt County Sheriff's Department responded to a 911 call about the individuals in the water, sending a helicopter and two rescue boats to scour the water.

The bodies of the parents were found onshore later Saturday. The search for the boy continued Saturday and Sunday but was suspended today. Garrigan said the sheriff's department was making periodic checks of the beach.

"The Coast Guard gives our condolences to the family. We have done and are doing all we can," he said.

so sad. I've heard about this happening with a person going into a burning house to save the pet, and somehow they don't make it out alive, but the pet gets out fine (or was already out). I've thought about this and what we would do in a fire;.

Yes, I think it was instinct for the son to go in and I'm sure he thought it wasn't that bad. After the son couldn't get back, I can definitely see why the parents went in to save him (the son, not the dog).

Animals are self sufficient.
Why do people feel they need to save them?

Crazy animal lovers are ...crazy.

I would yell and whistle and all that good business but I'm not risking my life for an animal.
Seriously?

I'd try to get help. If I were around when my dog died, I would have tried to save him, but not if it risked my life.
 
I love animals a lot but I'm a human. They don't compare.

I don't want to die but if I can save them I would. I'm not going to sit there and watch them die. That would hurt my soul.

My dog would just have to die, but he is too smart to jump into a large body of water or a burning building. My dog is scared of the damn stairs.

this is why I wonder what my pets would do if the house was on fire. They are afraid of everything and everyone except us. If they were here alone and the firemen were trying to get to them, they would hideLOL because they're scared of people LOL. If we ran out and called to them, they probably wouldn't come because of all the fire trucks, they'd be scared.

 I just hope their natural instinct to run from the heat would kick in and they would find an opening to escape and hide in the woods or something. But knowing them they would hide in the deepest corner in the basement and burn up.

my house flooded once while I was gone. came home and that negro was just sitting on the couch.
He won't go in corners, but he'd probably hide under the bed and they'd have to pull him out. 
Also, he doesn't bark. so if we need help, i'm sh1t outta luck

That sounds exactly like my dog, except he loves people. LOL He runs up to strangers all the time. He is scared of loud noises though. If a fire started and there were sirens going, and I was calling him from outside, he would probably hide in the deepest corner of the apartment and burn up. Damn dogs. Well, I pray to never be in that situation.

He was probably calm as hell. At least he was safe.

yes I just hope it doesn't happen .

we have signs on all the windows "In case of fire, Please Save Our Pets" just in case we aren't home, the firefighters will   know pets are inside and can attempt to get them. I also added '2 cats in basement' on the sign because I know that's where they'll go to hide LOL.

This.

A story in NC about a man's dog who was hit by a car, then he ran out to try and help his dog and got hit and killed by a car. The dog died too. Too sad.Ouch

If the boy had gotten pulled into the water 1st, the dog probably would have gone in to try to save him. Naturally a father is going to try to save his son. I don't understand why the mother went into the water at all though. Such a sad situation.

At least the little girl and the dog have each other. Bless their hearts. I'm sure the internet will provide well for them financially.

I had pets I would've risked my life to save. But I have a child now, so, ya know, priorities and.....all that good shyt.

Cry  I hate these ethical dilemmas!  In that case, no but part of me would have died with my dog.  Sometimes during the day at work I wonder if my dog is okay.  Like, if I left the dryer going or something and the house caught fire....omg I can't.....

There were some people who needed to evacuate because of Sandy but none of the shelters they found would take pets so they stayed.  One man, who was a veteran said his dog was all he had.  No family or friends and one of his biggest concerns if he died was who would find and care for his dog.  He even mentioned the thought of killing his dog then himself.

Pet love is deep.

True to my word, my first thought was "grab the puppy."
in the end, i pulled his leash and started running. he may be small and doesn't bark let alone bite, but he's as fast as a cheetah. when I run, he runs.
