The Gulf of Thailand is large, although not deep, but no one would think of crossing it by swimming. That’s why the workers on the rig were pretty surprised when they saw a dog in the water. The coast is almost 200 km away — where is she from here? The animal barely kept on the water and the editorial Lemurov.net I was glad of what happened next.
There were no animals on the tower, the dog obviously came from outside. But how did she manage to swim such a distance and why did she even swim to the tower, which stands in the middle of the bay? Probably, the answer lies in the cruelty of the people whose efforts the animal was in the water, far from the shore. She was doomed — the workers recall that just by a miracle they noticed a small head among the waves. If the excitement at sea was a little stronger, and no one would have seen the dog. And so she got a chance.
The workers managed to lower the ropes and pick up the dog. She did not bark, moved little and only greedily drank the offered water. With the naked eye, it was clear that the animal was exhausted — how did it stay on the water at all? In a couple of days, the workers cooked a spacious cage for her, waiting for a rescue ship. All this time the dog did not make a sound, but only looked piteously at his rescuers. Who knows what she really had to go through?
The rescue of the dog became a local sensation — both at sea and on the shore saw this as a good sign. The animal was handed over to veterinarians, who were surprised to find that she was completely healthy. As if there was no exhausting swim across the bay, as if… the animal appeared there, in the sea near the drilling rig, at the will of higher powers? Impressionable Thais named the dog «Boonrod», which means «to make a spiritual donation for good luck in the future.» The foreman of the drillers, Khon Vitisak, has already stated that he will take her as a talisman to his house if the owners are not found.
