The daughter called for help. Trouble is, cell phone service is spotty there. It's entirely likely she had to exit the sand spit area and get back near "civilization" (if you can call it that) nearer to the roadway. Depends where they were. The parks person indicated it was a 1/2mi jog from the last spot she could park to the scene.
Imagine being the daughter. Imagine having to leave that beach knowing what happened, in order to get any sort of assistance.

Pretty close actually. I've done a lot of diving all around the Fort Bragg, Ca. area which is a little bit south of Point Arena. Rock entry, rock exits. The time in particular that I mentioned, a buddy of mine and I were trying to get back on the rocks, he ended up getting launched over the top of me, (I was already stuck to the rocks trying to exit) and when the swell receded we both ended up tumbling down the very steep rocks about 20' back down into the water. It's amazing how incredibly helpless and insignificant the ocean can make you feel when you're in it.

I would do anything for my guy, plus he likes the Packers!

If at all possible I would try to save my pooch but, common sense would need to rule the day. I sure would make every reasonable attempt.
But, as stated above...once your child jumps in after the dog any parent is very likely going to follow. How do you go on living the rest of your life watching your child drown without getting your feet wet?
If I had to live with that I would probably drown myself in the bathtub.

He looks pensive: "You want me to dive into that uber-cold surf, wearing this silly Packers hat? What are you, nutz??"

I could not go too far into it, to save my dog, or any one that I have ever owned, and risk my children growing up fatherless.
Evidently a daughter was there with them.

I would go in after my child...who went after the dog. I'm very fond of my dog, but would go in just after her - not at the risk of my kids being orphaned. But I could never stand there while my child drowned no matter why he went in.
The whole situation is so tragic. My heart breaks for the daughter...
