A Northern Dog and his ball chucker go viral

Buddy, a Northern Dog, is breaking the internet.

Almost two years ago, he was given up by his owners in the northern communities of Canada as a young, rambunctious teenaged pup. Like many free roaming dogs, Buddy was following his nose, probably doing dog things like chasing cars and running with his friends – things that can quickly get a dog in trouble.  Energetic, athletic and most likely too much for his owners, he was relinquished for rehoming.

WATCH: Chest cam captures race to save entangled seal

Wed, 06/15/2016

It is not an easy process to capture an entangled seal.

The gray seals here on Cape Cod tend to haul out on sand bars, giving them egress in multiple directions.

If they come up on the mainland, they usually stay close to the water line so they can quickly flush back into ocean just at the mere sight of us, much less when we are rushing at them full on with nets in hand.
