Good news update: Baltic

Remember Baltic, the dog who floated some 75 miles on ice floes and was finally rescued at the last minute by the crew of a Polish research boat? Well, it turns out that he didn’t accept any of the people claiming him, so his new owner is Adam Buczynski, the crewman who pulled him off the ice. Baltic is now a ship’s dog, outfitted with a new custom life vest and going back to sea.

It seems that his relationship with Mr. Buczynski was sealed during bath time. Baltic was reluctant to enter the shower, despite desperately needing one to free his fur of all the encrusted salt it had accumulated — so Mr. Buczynski picked him up and took a shower with him. They’ve been friends ever since.
