Seattle P-I: Man jumps off ferry to rescue his dog: "'We obviously do not encourage people to jump into the water from the ferry,' said Patricia Patterson, spokeswoman for Washington State Ferries. 'But I understand the reaction. If it were my dog, I likely would have done the same thing.'
Fisher didn't need to jump, though. Ferry crew members are trained to stop to rescue any pet that goes overboard."
Good to know!
