Despite the fast-flowing water, the Labrador manages to grasp in his jaws a cord hanging off the canoe. With the lead firmly between his teeth, the dog then starts to drag the vessel back to shore. As he does so, some people on the bankside begin to shout out encouragement.
“Good boy, Robbie. Bring them home,” one cries out. And that’s exactly what the dog does. Yes, he turns the boat against the flow of the river and starts to heave it towards dry land. Soon, all three dogs are back on the shore, and the apparent crisis is completely averted.
