Topics: Kentucky. Labrador retriever, body, Bjoern Wallberg

Kentucky, a Labrador retriever, is credited with helping authorities find the body of his master who died hiking in New Jersey. Authorities say a team saw the dog's eyes reflecting off headlings during the search for 51-year-old Bjoern Waalberg, who had died hours earlier. Waalberg and Kentucky set off on a mid-afternoon hike and the man's wife reported him overdue. His body was found about three-hours later with the dog close by. Waalberg's death is said to be from natural causes.
