A Swedish extreme adventure team couldn’t help but fall in love with a stay dog who steadfastly refused to leave their side as they battled the treacherous terrains of Ecuador’s Amazon rain forest.
The loveable mutt met the team during the last two days of a 10-day, 430-mile course of full throttle agony and exertion.
After they fed him a meatball—because they were Swedish and Swedish people always have meatballs—the discerning doggie decided he liked these folks a whole bunch. He raced with with them as they trekked through mud and over mountains, until they ran into a 36-mile water stage. They were fearful that the dog might drown, so they left him behind on the shore.
But there would be no stopping him. The canny canine watched them sail off in their kayaks for a few minutes and then frantically doggie paddled until he caught up with them. From then on, there would be no more leaving the intrepid four-legged adventurer behind: The team pulled him up into a boat and wrapped him in a jacket.
They named him Arthur, and at the end of the grand adventure, team captain Mikael Lindnord, arranged for him to be shipped back home to Sweden, where he visited the dog-ter and was some how miraculously given a clean bill of health. Throngs of media awaited the overnight celebrity as he stepped on dry land.
“I came to Ecuador to win the World Championship. Instead, I got a new friend,” Lindnord told reporters.
