    EUREKA, Calif. (AP) — A couple died and their 16-year-old son went missing after being swept into sea in Northern California while trying to save their dog, authorities said Sunday.
    The family was at Big Lagoon, a beach north of Eureka, Saturday afternoon when the dog chased after a thrown stick and got pulled into the ocean by eight to ten foot waves, said Dana Jones, a state Parks and Recreation district superintendent.
    Jones said the boy went after the dog, prompting his father to go after them. She said the teenager was able to get out, but when he didn't see his father, he and his mother went into the water looking for him.
    "Both were dragged into the ocean," Jones said.
    The Times-Standard reports (http://bit.ly/UmSP2P) the couple's daughter called police.
    Jones said a park ranger had to run a half mile to get to the beach because his car wasn't made to handle the terrain. When he arrived, he wasn't able to get to them because of the high surf, she said.
    Rescuers eventually retrieved the mother's body and the father's body washed up.
    The Coast Guard deployed a helicopter and two motor life boats to search for the teenager, but the aerial search was suspended Saturday evening by thick coastal fog......

    Would Howard risk his life for Beth in that situation?

    I think not.

    I pulled a little puppy out of a swimming pool once. It was very grateful, would have certainly drowned otherwise. I just sat there with it for a long time. That was the happiest pup ever.

    My dog jumped off the deck at the Comal river at my in-laws in San Antonio. Of course I jumped in, saved him, broke my fucking toe and scraped up my arm. I would have let the in-laws sink like a rock.

    What a shame. It just goes to show one never knows what weird series of events can be set in place insure your demise.

    If they'd only had a cat, instead.
