Yahoo – When you hear about a man saving his dog from a sinking ship, it’s hard to not be moved by the tale of an animal lover’s heroism. But the story becomes slightly less heroic when you learn that the man saved his dog before his own wife. But that’s apparently what happened when Graham Anley and his wife, Cheryl, found their yacht sinking after it hit a reef while on a voyage from East London to Madagascar. National Sea Rescue Institute North London station commander Geoff McGregor said all three were wearing life jackets. The 9-year-old Jack Russell terrier named Rosie was wearing a tailored life jacket equipped with a strobe light beacon. “As the incident happened Graham sent a Mayday radio distress call and activated the EPIRB (a GPS beacon) but they were immediately forced to abandon ship,” McGregor said in an interview.”He first swam Rosie ashore safely before returning for his wife, whose safety line had snagged on the steering gear,” McGregor added.The couple and their dog all made it out free of injury.
Whoever wrote this article is clearly a dirty cat hippy. Like why is he less of a hero because he saved his dog first? Umm no brainer city. I mean I got a wife. I got a dog. If my fake internet yacht crashes into a reef you better believe I’m saving the dog first. And I’m not even trying to be a prick about it. I’d expect the same thing from my wife as well. I’d rather drown than watch my dog drown. It’s not even close. My dog is a better person than me on every single level of living. If you don’t save your dog first you’re an asshole that deserves to die anyway. End of story.
