Camo, the dog owned by F/V Two Mikes crewman Shane Lague, was found today running on Newport’s North Jetty. A commercial fisherman saw Camo, scooped him up and brought him to the Lincoln County Animal Shelter where he is being held for its owner. The six month old pit bull was very hungry and thirsty, but is otherwise just fine, according to shelter staff. Owner Shane Lague was reported to be very excited about learning that Camo didn’t go down with the Two Mikes and told animal shelter staff that he and his wife will be driving tomorrow from their home in Long Beach, WA to Newport to pick up Camo.
Sadly, a Yellow Lab named Bob, belonging to Two Mikes Captain Todd Holt, did not survive the ordeal. Bob’s body was recovered from the sunken vessel by the Coast Guard.
