The loyal dog disappears after man loses his canoe.

Love these shows--it is truly amazing to see how the verge of death can bring many people to reach deep inside for survival.

This is probably....rather, easily The. Best. Episode. Ever. Period. Exclamation Point. I have seen every single episode of I Shouldn't Be Alive, and there are a few standouts (Lost In The Snow, A Walk Into Hell) and this was probably the most mind boggling. I mean a single man surviving 76 days in the biggest desert of them all...the Ocean. Survival at its finest. I am so glad they brought this show back and support the next season by giving me a thumbs up! Bravo Animal Planet for being surprisingly human. I do not want to spoil it but if you are going to buy a single episode from this season, buy this one!

I think some people have been unfair about this show.

First of all, there is a warning at the beginning of the show about disturbing content and viewer discretion advisory.

Secondly, the show is not about our average peaceful daily life. When our life takes a dramatic turn into a hellish experience, starvation, dehydration, desperation among other things will kick us into extreme survival mode. Honestly, between my life and my family's, I can see why I will give up mine, but I'm not so sure when between mine and my dog or any other animal.

Lastly, the show is excellent in depicting the physical and psychological impacts under extreme circumstances. And yes, this is flaws in this shows too.

Steve Callahan's drift across the Atlantic is the best ISBA ever (and I have seen all of them). Although not totally accurate and consistent with his book, the video is great. I highly recommend.

This episode is a perfect example of how to find inner strength, and how to use it when your mind and body both tell you to just lay down and die. It also embodies a strong lesson about how precious one single life is... even if it was trapped alone in a crevasse...The thoughts that went through this man's head at the bottom of the crevasse (and halfway up), saved his life and I will never forget this. Your mind can save you or it can kill you.

Years ago, I met with an 'adventurer' of sorts. We became friends, did a few lightweight day trips before taking on anything large. I remember chiding him for the amount of stuff he would bring for a day on a river, or some rock climbing, or a hike. He replied that there are no guarantees and who, other than yourself, will take care of you if you run into trouble? I agreed, but still thought it was overkill: a first aide kit, a gallon of water, matches, foil, ace bandages, solar blanket, change of clothes, shoes, energy bars, wind tarp, on and on, stuffed into a large daypack...for a hike in the Columbia River Gorge?!?
When I was watching "Death in the Sea of Cortez" I thought of my friend the adventurer. If only he had met up with these men! Right before my eyes the unfolding of the reason to go for 'overkill' there are no guarantees. How did these physically unfit walking disasters let themselves be lulled into security? Where is their common sense? Why are they not moving at night time and sleeping during the day? Where is their common sense and giant daypack that would have saved them the misery they endured? I became angry watching these men. They engineered their own destiny through ignorance or arrogance. There is no angel of mercy. There is no mercy. There is nature. Look around you. Is nature kind? If you know the ways, she might be. If you don't, no.
Joe and Pepe are finally saved by two fisherman. Do they realize what a miracle that is or do they take it for granted? Do they understand the part they played in this needless destruction of lives and the sanctity in which this story should be told? The ending put them back into their air conditioned world of convenience and I wondered if they learned a thing from this or was it just a good drinking story?

I too, was horrifed that the man decided to eat his dog-however, one only knows what one would do , if they were actually in that situation. Of course it's easy to say "I would never do that"-that is until you are in a TRUE SURVIVAL SITUATION. If a man can cut off his own arm to survive, then it is not surprising that a man would/could kill a dog to survive. He didn't expect to vomit up the dog- he expected it could save his life. Everything changes when you are in that situation- I am certain of that.The will to live is stronger than anything, and I think what he did was courageous. His experience was awful, was almost murdered, almost drowned, lost his boat, got malaria, had no food. and I'm sure every time he thinks of killing that dog, he is traumatized. When it comes to survival, we become more primitive, and resort to primitive means of survival.

Absolutely an amazing tale! Pits one man's determination to stay alive against all the elements of nature conspiring against him! Utterly unbelievable misfortunes befall a man whose only aim was to seek the solitude and natural beauty of the Grand Canyon, to experience the beneficence of nature and to understand mankind's place on the planet amongst the geological artifacts from millions of years ago! An awe inspiring tale of courage and endurance!
