It must be excruciating to see your beloved pet get swept away by the current into the impenetrable vastness of the ocean, and that’s exactly what happened to a fisherman named Nick Hayworth.

Over a month ago, his German Shepherd Luna fell off his boat in the Pacific Ocean. Hayworth reported her missing two miles off of San Clemente Island to the US Navy’s Naval Base Coronado. They checked out the island, but no dice. Luna was presumed dead.

Hayworth stayed in the area a few days, because he knew his dog was a strong swimmer who would head for shore, but he eventually had to give up. Then on Tuesday, Navy staff arrived on the island for work and Luna was just sitting there, straight chilling.

No word on what exactly she’d been up to the last month. Though she appears under-nourished, Luna’s otherwise fine and was probably chomping on mice to stay alive. They even had a wildlife biologist from the San Diego Zoo check her out to be sure. Miracles are real! (h/t ABC News)
