Go Dog, Go!

Dog beats most people in swim race
Golden retriever ‘Jake’ first non-human in annual competition
SAN FRANCISCO – One of the swimmers in this weekend’s Alcatraz Invitational swim has dog paddled his way into the record book.
Jake is a 65-pound golden retriever and the only non-human in the tenth annual 1.2 mile swim from the infamous prison island to the San Francisco shore. The four-year-old pooch swam across the cold, choppy water in just under 42 minutes, finishing 72nd out of the more than 500 swimmers. Organizers say it was the first known crossing by a dog.

I hope he got a Milkbone.

    Jake had an unfair advantage, and I demand a Congressional investigation!

  2. The anti-dog lobby speaks! Rough!

    It’s a good thing that the water in The Bay is cold, else that would be a hot dog.

    And it would have been ironic if either the dog or his owner was named “Oscar”.
