“On this day 2 years ago, my best friend and travel companion died. I still think about him almost everyday, but choose not to be sad, for I am lucky to have had 14 wonderful years of travel & adventure together with my dog, Sable’s spirit is always in my heart.”

I first met Sable when he was a rescue dog* at the RSPCA Victoria animal shelter on Monday the 29th December in 1997. He was a Malamute / Dingo cross stray from the streets of Bayswater, aged 1 year old approximately. He was an unusual dog with a lot of energy and spirit, and liked to hug and hump everything that moved. He had a lot of love to give.
*Rescue Dog = Adog that is rescued from a possible euthanasia after being found as a stray, or a dog that has been saved from an abusive or neglectful home by an animal rescue organisation such as the RSPCA in Australia the ASPCA in the USA, or a dog that is simply no longer wanted or can no longer be cared for by its owner.

A Californian family were swept out to sea in 3 metre waves (10 foot surf) as they tried to rescue their dog Fran from the cold dangerous surf, at Big Lagoon beach in California.
The tragedy happened on the 26th November 2012, while Howard Kuljian and his family were out walking with their dog Fran on an overcast morning at Big Lagoon beach. They were throwing a stick for Fran to fetch at the water’s edge, when she was suddenly swallowed by a wave. Howard’s 16 year old son Gregory ran to save the family dog, but was taken by the surf as well. Howard aged 54 followed to save Gregory, then his wife Mary Scott aged 57 followed him to save him and their son, while their 18 year old daughter Olivia and Gregory’s girlfriend watched in horror on the shore.
Howard Kuljian’s body washed ashore, and rescuers eventually retrieved Mary Scott’s body, while Fran their dog made it back to shore on her own. Gregory Kuljian is missing, presumed dead.
