    A dog whose owner died after his powerboat capsized in a bay north of San Francisco has been found alive three days after the accident.

    The Labrador retriever named Yoda was spotted Thursday on a rocky beach by two firefighters scouting locations for water rescue skills training.

    Marin County Battalion Chief Bret McTigue says they wrapped the cold, wet dog in a lifejacket and put him near a fireplace in a fire station to warm him up.

    The dog's owner was 47-year-old Brian Ho.

    McTigue says Ho died Monday after his 13-foot boat capsized in Tomales Bay.

    Another man and another dog survived.

    Relatives at Ho's funeral announced that his dog had survived.
