Good for her - she did what she needed to do. Despite not having a way back out, the idea to take a canoe out to hold them both was a good one. I applaud her and her parents, and I'm glad it all worked out.
Good job

I think that was pretty smart thinking on her part to get the canoe -- while her strategy didn't compeltely pan out, both she and the dog are now safe, and that's what counts!

The canoe was a smart idea for survival, but unfortunately not for escape. Kudos to her for keeping safe, anyway.

That takes guts and a lot of love for your dog to do that. I'm glad it all worked out for them both.

Great job thinking of the canoe, especially in such a pressure-filled situation. I'm glad both dog and owner are OK.
