Dang, that sucks. Dog didn't even have a choice to be there. Souse hole is rowdy at 5000 cfs, flips like 50% of boats, and lots of logs swirling around.
I once saw a couple of drunk rednecks tubing up in WA, they kept going through the same rapid and kept flipping over and spilling their beer, so one guy thought it would be a good idead to put a seat belt on himself. He went through, flipped over and was stuck under his tube. All you could see was his feet and hands flailing at the sides of the tubes. It would have been hilarious if I didn't think he was going to die. He managed to extricate himself though. Anyhoo...
