Japanese Dog Who Survived Three Weeks at Sea after the Tsunami Reunited with Owner

(Video Link)

Ban, a two-year old dog from Japan, survived three weeks at sea on a rooftop after the recent earthquake and tsunami. He was rescued from the Japanese Coast Guard and, as you can see in this video, reunited with his owner:

The 2-year-old dog, named Ban, greeted her owner "with joy, jumping and wagging her tail."

''We'll never let go of her,'' the owner was quoted as saying by a center official, according to Kyodo News, which portrays the reunion as more subdued, writing that the dog "happily wagged her tail when the owner appeared."

It's true, there was a news report showing the rescue crew feeding the hungry dog hotdogs on the boat. This scene was probably after the dog was fed and take care of.

Why would anyone lie about a dog being stranded at sea for three weeks? The dog obviously went through hell and that can be seen in his facial expression towards the end of the video.
