search and rescue dogs. Very sad but sweet. This happened at the Murrah bombing too. Very interesting. It makes me feel like dogs are actually more human than we think.

Newfoundland dogs are often used in search and rescue work. They require a minimum of three years training before they can jump from moving transports and become a SAR dog. Their strength and ability to swim so well makes it easy for them to paddle to shore with a person. Many trainers say because of their nature at retrieving things, it's more like a game than work for these dogs.

Miss my Newfy! "Getting ready to exit aircraft - Newfoundland water rescue dog who will jump from the helicopter into the water" -- Newfoundlands are wonderful dogs. Their fur is extra thick, to keep it waterproof and warm and to help them float better.
