DILLON BEACH (AP) — A dog whose owner died after his powerboat capsized in a bay north of San Francisco has been found alive three days after the accident.

The Labrador retriever named Yoda was spotted Thursday on a rocky beach by two firefighters scouting locations for water rescue skills training.

Marin County Battalion Chief Bret McTigue says they wrapped the cold, wet dog in a lifejacket and put her near a fireplace in a fire station to warm her up.

The dog’s owner was 47-year-old Brian Ho.

McTigue says Ho died Monday after his 13-foot boat capsized in Tomales Bay.

Another man and another dog survived.

Relatives at Ho’s funeral announced that his dog had survived.
