Miracles whether big or small, do happen every day. And miracles don’t choose places for them to happen. They can happen while you are on land, thousand feet above the ground, or like the following story, in the ocean.
It is normal to see water creatures and fishes while you are in the middle of the ocean. But what you will do if you will see a dog swimming in the ocean and is 135 miles off the land?
A brown Aspin dog was rescued by oil rig workers while they are in the ocean. The dog was found swimming in the Gulf of Thailand. The workers noticed her head poking through the ripples and they called the dog towards them.
The dog paddled towards their boat and found shelter to the rusty metals of the rig. The workers immediately used a rope to pull the poor dog up. At first, they were hesitant to pet the dog because they have no idea if she will bite them or not.
“After she made it onto the bars below the rig she didn’t cry or bark at all. We looked for a way to help her and in the end, decided to use the rope to tie around her body to lift her up. When we first took her onboard her she was depressed and tired from being in the water for a long time.” according to Khon Vitisak.
The oil rig workers had no idea how this dog end up swimming in the ocean. They immediately gave her water as her body’s water content was lost while she was in the ocean.
Being tired and shocked by what she has experienced, the dog refrained from moving a lot. However, after she was given more water to drink and minerals to take, she started walking and sitting up normally.
The dog stayed with the workers for two nights. They made her a make-shift cage as her temporary home. When an oil vessel passed through the area, she was transferred there by a crane.
She was then taken to Songkhla in the southern part of Thailand to get checked. She is under the care of Watchdog Thailand now which is an animal charity. It was found out that she is healthy.
The volunteers don’t have any idea if the rescued dog is a stray or not. However, they still renamed her as Boonrod, which means “making a spiritual donation for good luck in the future” in Thai.
On the other hand, her rescuer, Khon Vitisak is planning to adopt her if no one will take her. Mr. Vitisak said that it is a miracle that they found her.
“I hope to adopt her as a pet. I am looking forward to spending many happy years together with her.”, he said.
