A poodle is safe and sound after floating down the Kennebec River on a small ice floe. A black standard poodle named Hoku jumped on the ice chunk while exploring the shoreline in Bath with her owner Saturday. As Hoku floated swiftly downriver, two members of the Bath Iron Works security team took a boat out into the river in a rescue attempt. Sergeant Paul White told The Times Record that he and Corporal Harland Stanley let their boat come to a standstill and waited for the ice chunk to drift by. Stanley grabbed the leash and called the dog by name. She then jumped from the ice onto the boat, dry and unscathed.
