“A dog is a man’s best friend” is a phrase all dog owners would happily agree with. This story proves that dogs are loyal not only towards their owners, but towards other animals as well. Mark Freeley spent a rather ordinary afternoon with his two dogs, Storm and Sarah, along the shore of Long Island Sound. Things took an unexpected, yet appreciated, turn when his 6-year-old Golden retriever Storm detected something in the lake. What followed was something even Mark couldn’t predict, and if he needed another reassurance of his dog’s kindness – that was it.
A good boy
While all dogs are usually good-natured, Golden retrievers in particular are known for their friendly and cheerful personality. That’s why Mark Freeley fell in love with Storm. Mark loved his two dogs and spent a great amount of time with them.
Given the good temper of the dogs and how much Mark cared for them, he would take them daily on long walks, usually without a leash. He knew how loyal his dogs were, and he trusted them to come back.
