One cold winter day in Poland, a dog walked to the river's edge and found himself suddenly floating away on a sheet of ice. Trapped on his raft of ice, the dog drifted down the river for four days, traveling more than 75 miles from where he started. Finally, a research ship on the Baltic Sea spotted him and its crew rescued the dog, soon to be known as Baltic.
