Dog rescued after jumping into kayak

An adventurous Labrador retriever had to be rescued after she jumped into a kayak and floated toward the open ocean in northern Scotland.

Rosy was playing on the shore of Loch Broom, which leads to the Atlantic, last Wednesday afternoon with owners Michael and Sean Osborne.

The two brothers, 18 and 15, were swimming in the loch and had left a kayak lying on the shoreline with Rosy wandering nearby.

When they looked back to shore they noticed that the 6-year-old, who is frightened of water, had sat down in the kayak as it began to float out toward the sea.

“Rosy hates water, so it just seemed so ridiculous that she was out there on the Loch,” the boys’ mother told the Daily Mail.
