Seattle couple Christopher Miller and Brandy Meissner sold everything, bought a fishing boat, and were en route to Hawaii with their two dogs to start a commercial fishing business. That didn t go exactly as planned, and instead of a placidly floating across the Pacific they hit a bit of a rough patch. And by rough patch we mean they encountered a storm that generated 40 foots waves, putting them and their 38 foot fishing boat in peril.

The upshot is that when the rescue team did appear on the horizon, it arrived in the form of Princess Cruises s Golden Princess, one of the largest cruise ships on the planet. If we ever need to get plucked out of the ocean in the midst a bone chilling torrential downpour, we definitely want the ship doing the plucking to have a Lotus Spa, a gym, a fitness area and almost a dozen hot tubs. That just seems like good planning. Knowing how to prepare the dogs in preparation for a mid-sea water rescue even better planning!

You d go up, up, up and then come crashing down, said Meissner. They sent out a signal and the cruise ship Golden Princess came to the rescue. They altered course and were on our position about 12 hours after the signal, said Miller. The two got ready to abandon ship, but they weren t the only ones on board. The couple s two dogs, Romeo and Akilah, were with them. We deployed our life raft, we put on our survival suits, the lifesaving equipment, put life vests on the dogs, taped up their paws really good, said Miller.

The story is still ongoing, of course, since the couple still needs to track down what s left of their boat. We re given to understand that those things come equipped with all sorts of robust tracking devices, so fingers crossed.

In the meantime we know it s the puppies you really want to see, so here s another one. For more pictures you should go to the gallery that accompanied the writeup. All the pictures come courtesy of whoever was doing onboard photography for Princess Cruises, which is deservedly getting some earned media out of this.
