Bob Bozarth and Brian Johnson with Lucky

Dogs like to swim, but one dog took on more of a challenge than it realized when it was found adrift in the middle of the Caribbean. Back in October, a group of Diving For Life divers spotted the dog swimming in the water several miles out from Belize's Pompion Caye, about a 30-minute boat ride.

After a couple of attempts, they managed to haul it on board their dive boat. "The Sunday Miracle of Dive Boat Three," as the divers called it, became even more amazing when one of their number, a veterinarian, happened to have a dog collar and leash with him.

The dog was shivering with fear, but it melted everyone's heart during the journey back to Placencia, where the Placencia Humane Society unsuccessfully tried to track down its owner. Eventually, they named the mutt Lucky and two members of the group, Bob Bozarth and Brian Johnson, adopted it.

Diving For Life is a non-profit organization that sponsors The International Gay and Lesbian Scuba Jamboree, and has raised more than a million dollars for various charitable causes that support the health concerns of the LGBT community in the course of 25 years. www.divingforlife.org
