He was hunting when he fell through the ice into frigid water. But as witnesses called 911, a surprising ally stayed by his side. Loyal creature's gesture that melted hearts.

Nice dog, bad man. Maybe the poor duck he killed asked for some kharma?

This dog deserves an extra treat. The man however should be very ashamed.

Wonderful dog, but his owner is a waste of oxygen - he deserved everything that happened to him for killing a duck (along with all the other creatures he has murdered over the years).

Pity that this human POS wasn't left to die.Lets hope that this bastard dies really soon slowly and in agony.
The only good hunter is a dead one.
Animals are magnificent.Pity that this lovely dog has such a POS filth bag waste of space owner.

Sweet dog. I could only hope the hunter's heart might have melted some to spare other critters.

I wish this sweet and loyal dog had a different master as his current one should not be out killing other animals....

The dog was thinking, "OK, you got the duck. This is no time to go swimming! Can we go home now and get warm?"
