After the tragic events in Japan, it's nice to hear a heart warming story now and again. BBC News ran a story about a dog rescued by the coast guard after 3 weeks out at sea. Ban the dog survived by staying on top of the roof of a house as it was washed out to sea, she was rescued by the coast guard's helicopter.
The 2 year old dog was later reunited with her owner after seeing a TV news report.
"Ban immediately jumped up and wagged her tail when her owner appeared, local media reported."
