PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) -- A man who was accidentally shot by a 12-gauge shotgun on Saturday after his dog jumped into a boat is recovering. Matthew Marcum's legs and buttocks were injured in the bizarre incident and he was taken to Legacy Emanuel Hospital & Health Center in Portland.

Marcum's father, Henry, said his 23-year-old son was about to tie up an 11-foot open aluminum boat, when his 3-year-old Labrador, Drake, jumped into the boat.

Matthew Marcum said his dog, Drake, is a good dog and he isn't upset with him.

Dog Drives Van Into St. James Coffee Shop

I heard about this on News 12 this morning. I suspect that the dog could be my sister, Fanny. Fanny loves coffee. She loves apple martinis, too, but that's another post.

Mutts Rule

Fred is very excited by the prospect of a new dog in the White House this January. Like many others, he suggests that the Obama family consider a noble mutt. We make the best dogs!

Perhaps the Obamas could visit Fred's hometown of Pup Washington to make their selection!
