Mark was holding his breath because he had never seen Storm jump into the sea that way. Actually, Storm typically didn't like water at all. The dog swam away from the shore and dipped under the water. Was everything okay? Was he able to breathe? As the waves continued to grow, Mark's heart stopped. When Storm came to the surface, Mark finally realized what was happening.

Dogs have the uncanny ability to be exceptional. Not only are they extremely intelligent creatures, but they're also capable of showing other animals, and humans, an inconceivable amount of compassion. If you've ever doubted that, then check out this incredible story of Storm.

Mark Freeley had big dreams. He wasn't the type to get drunk, and he wasn't interested in having fun. After three years of working hard, he would have his law degree. As a child, he watched "12 Angry Men" and he was immediately drawn to law. Along with going to school, he had three jobs, but he couldn't keep going on passion alone.

Mark felt alone. He figured that since he worked as a busboy at night, he waited tables in between classes, and he was a barista in the morning, that his days would go by fast. But they continued to drag on. As a student at Hofstra University School of law, he didn't have to make friends, let alone start a relationship. He was able to function on only fours of sleep each night, but the pressure began to take a huge toll on his body and mind.

Mark was at the top of his class, but he was depleted of energy. He had nice classmates, but they weren't interested in Mark. How could he do it? How was he able to have such impeccable self-control? Mark would wake up and fall asleep among students who were passed out on alcohol-covered floors, and they thought he was missing out on the college experience. But Mark had bigger dreams than that.
