    Beth:"Thank God the dog is safe."

    POINT REYES, Calif. - A man has been swept to sea and drowned while trying to save his dog hit by a rogue wave on a Northern California beach.


    The Coast Guard says the man and his wife were walking on the beach near Point Reyes on New Year's Day when a wave overtook the dog. Point Reyes is a popular tourist destination about 30 miles northwest of San Francisco.
    The San Francisco Chronicle ( http://bit.ly/VhR4Cj) reports the couple went into the water to rescue the dog but the man was swept away.
    His body was found about three hours later.
    The wife and dog made it safely to shore.
    Names haven't been released.
    In November, three people drowned in roiling surf while trying to save their dog at Big Lagoon state beach near Arcata.

    Swim to the side, not toward the beach untill you clear the tide is what they say to do.

    No, but you know she is thinking it. I'm going to pose to you a Sophie's choice. Bianca, if she were still alive and Howard are swept out in the ocean. Is there any doubt in your mind that Beth would save Bianca.

    That's gotta be some wave to knock you down, then carry you out so far it's above head level. The beaches on the Pacific are steep, I hear.
