Dog swims 1.5 miles during storm to reunite with owner

A Sausalito man whose home on the water sank during last week’s brutal storm was reunited with his dog that somehow survived the sinking, and swam to shore.

Steve Alioto had everything he loved on the boat in Sausalito, anchored out because he couldn’t afford a dock.  He returned to the boat after helping a friend during Thursday’s storm to find his home had sank.

“All I saw was the mast sticking out of the water,” Alioto said.

Also on board was Steve’s constant companion, Daisy.   “I’m big daddy Kibbles and Bits.  I’m the guy who provides the dog food, the walks, the baths, and everything that she tells me she needs.”

Steve thought she had gone down with the ship, but Daisy had escaped and found her way to shore.
