"If the waves had beenstrong, we wouldn't have seen him," Vitisak Payalaw, of Chevron ThailandExploration and Production’s oil drilling team, wrote on Facebook. He sharedimages and video of the rescue.
The shivering animal then managed to cling to a pole on theplatform and could be seen looking up as workers on the oil rig devised arescue plan."Finally, we decided to tie a rope around his neck and pullhim to our site," Vitisak wrote. "We had to race against time as windwaves might sweep him away."The brown Aspin dog was eventually pulled fromthe sea safely, but "looked exhausted," according to Vitisak.
The pooch was believed to havefallen into the sea from a fishing trawler, the Bangkok Post reported.She has now been named "Boonrod" which in Thai means "making aspiritual donation for good luck in the future."
