The lucky dog rescued from a roof drifting off Japanese coast for three weeks after the tsunami has finally been reunited with her owner.

Members of the Japan Coast Guard spotted the stricken pet - who had drifted nearly 2km offshore - during an aerial search of the area.

The two-year-old dog, called Ban, had an emotional reunion with her female owner after the woman spotted her on television.

Ban had survived for three weeks after the tsunami when coastguards spotted her while searching at sea for human survivors.

She was found drifting some 1.8km (1.1 miles) off Kesennuma, Miyagi prefecture, one of the Japanese areas hit worst by the disaster.

Local television showed showed pictures of the dog scampering around the roof of the house before it disappeared inside through a hole in the roof.

A cat wouldn't have made it half as long as that dog did, not that anyone would have rescued it if it did.

Cats are horrible, cat people are even worse.

If this had been a cat, upon being reunited with its owner it would have just sniffed her and walked away with it's brown eye held high.

Fuging cats.

If a housecat could kill you it would. In fact, they spend most of their day thinking of ways to kill humans. Since they are not physically capable to do so, they just spend their time giving humans dirty looks and pretend to like you when it is feeding time.

Lobsters are the same way, except they don't usually hang out with humans so they don't normally give dirty looks but rest assured that given the opportunity to kill a human they would.

Not only is this a scientific proven fact but I also know this because I own one..... a cat not a lobster.

That concludes the Huddle lesson for the day.

The End.

I like both cats and dogs. Sure, cats are evil, but that's one of their redeeming qualities.
