Miss my Newfy! "Getting ready to exit aircraft - Newfoundland water rescue dog who will jump from the helicopter into the water" -- Newfoundlands are wonderful dogs. Their fur is extra thick, to keep it waterproof and warm and to help them float better.

Rigel, a Newfoundland dog, belonging to First Officer Murdoch, saved the passengers in Life Boat 4. They were drifting in front of the Carpathia, too weak to call out. Thanks to the barking, Captain Rostron saw the boat on the starboard end of the bridge and ordered the engines stopped. Jonas Briggs, a seaman aboard the Carpathia kept the dog.

Rigel, a big black Newfoundland dog, belonging to First Officer Murdoch, saved the passengers in Life Boat #4. They were drifting in front of the Carpathia, too weak to call out. The dog had swam in the icy water for three hours, probably looking for his master. He was swimming in front of the lifeboat and alerted the Carpathia crew by barking. The boat might not have been rescued if not for the sharp barking of Rigel.
