I want to thank Vicki for barking this harrowing story to me.
It was a close call for Bi Bi, a Maltese-shitzu mix, who was blown off a pier in Australia.
Owner Sue Drummond looked on helplessly as Bi Bi was tossed into the surging waves.
“I thought he was going to sink and then maybe I wouldn’t be able to find him,” she said.
“But I didn’t really want to hop in the water either because I wasn’t quite sure if I could make it to shore with a struggling dog.”
Luckily for Bi Bi, Raden Soemawinata stripped down to shirt, jocks and socks, and dived in after the dog, the Herald Sun reports.
Mr Soemawinata, 20, was on the pier for a family ceremony to scatter his grandmother’s ashes into the bay.
“It was pretty cold and windy, but it wasn’t such a hard decision to jump in, it wasn’t such a great feat,” the humble hero said after the rescue.
“I’m a part-time model, so getting into my jocks isn’t so different to what I do for work.”
Bi Bi is one lucky pup, things may have ended tragically if Soemawinata wasn’t around. He definitely deserves a good Samaritan award.
