U.S Coast Guard Rescues Dog And Makes Him A Mascott

It's Monday, and there is nothing better to start a Monday morning off than a feel good story about a dog, am I right? I am on the weather network website every day, and I always come across these great rescue stories. Yesterday was no exception. After watching this video, I knew I had to share the story with the world.

Meet Barnacle:

Barnacle had a rough life. Until Petty Officer, Anthony Kaminski's wife found the dog wandering around a grocery store parking lot. They rescued him and searched for his owner for 6 weeks, to no avail. In the end, the couple decided to keep him. After a job relocation, Barnacle was made an official mascot of the coast guard station. A dream job for a lucky dog, who now spends his days playing fetch with the coast guards, and bringing joy to all of them. 

Take a moment to view this short video and see Barnacle in action!

That's it for today, I hope Barnacle brought a smile to your Monday morning, like he did mine!
