This is Boogie. He is a rambunctious Wheaton Terrier mix.
This afternoon, Boogie and his owner, Molly Pfeiffer, were walking in New York City near Pier 54 in the Chelsea area. The walkway they were on is at the edge of the Hudson River. Today, the water in the river was very cold (40 degrees).
I mentioned Boogie was rambunctious, didn't I? Well, he also can't swim. So, when Boogie fell off the walkway and into the cold water, his owner Molly freaked out. She knew Boogie would drown if she didn't do something. So, what do you think Molly did?
Yup. Molly leapt into the water, swam to Boogie and pulled him out of the water. The two of them were shivering and scared. Molly went back to her purse and called 911 on her cell. The NYPD Harbor Unit got there quickly and helped both owner and dog. Molly was taken to the hospital as a precaution against hyperthermia.
Both Boogie and Molly are now fine. They had a real New York adventure.
