Blue’s runner up to the 2001 award was Patty, a yellow Labrador Retreiver who saved her owner from drowning while on a winter duck hunting excursion. After Ray Fogg’s boat capsized and dumped the two into frigid North Atlantic waters, Patty let him grab hold of her tail while she vigorously doggy-paddled against the powerful current.

They made it all the way to the nearest land, where they were rescued by game wardens later on that evening.
