Good Dog

A Labrador retriever named Kentucky is being credited with helping authorities find the body of its owner, who died hiking in a nature preserve in northern New Jersey.

West Milford police tell The Associated Press that a search team saw the dog’s eyes reflecting off headlamps during its search late Saturday of the heavily wooded and hilly Apshawa Preserve.

Nearby, the team found the body of 51-year-old Bjoern Waalberg, who had apparently died hours earlier.

Police say Waalberg and his dog set out for the hike mid-afternoon Saturday. The man’s wife alerted authorities just after 7 p.m. when he did not return. His body was found just before 10 p.m., his dog close by.

Authorities say the hiker’s death does not appear to be suspicious.

Semper fi, pooch.
