Dog kept watch over boater’s body

The body of a South Carolina man who went boating and never returned was found three days later in his beached boat, watched over by his dog.

“That dog stayed with him the whole time,” Newberry County Sheriff Lee Foster said. “Apparently, it never left the side of the man. There were some limbs and branches that entangled the boat, and the dog actually tried to gnaw them and remove them and free him and the boat up.”
