POODLE IN A PICKLE
Dog safe after float down river on ice
Hoku knew just what to do Saturday morning as she floated down the Kennebec River on a small ice floe. Sit and wait — until security officers from Bath Iron Works were able to rescue her. The 11/2-year-old black standard poodle was dry and unhurt after she lost contact with owner Dana Bartone, who had been walking the dog along the river behind the Plant Home.
