Mitt Romney, contender for the Republican leadership and a guy who’s faced a lot of tough criticism here at the Scottish Terrier and Dog news, may not have treated his Irish Setter Seamus particularly well, but it turns out he has some other important dog history. In 2003, he saved the life of a Scottish Terrier caught in a boating accident, according to a Boston Herald report.
In the middle of the rescue, the governor actually took a dunking himself — thrown off the Jet Ski as one anxious boater scrambled aboard and tipped the craft off-balance.
The rescuing Romneys also managed to snatch the family dog, McKenzie, from a watery grave — grabbing the Scottish terrier first because it was the only passenger without a lifejacket.
“It looked like it wasn’t going to last much longer,” said Josh, who held the waterlogged pooch on the ride back to shore.
