"JOHN Kerry once rescued his children's pet hamster from the sea and gave it the kiss of life. The rescue happened during a family sailing trip when the family's pet labrador knocked the hamster's cage into the sea.
Kerry then dived in and pulled the cage to the surface with an oar before giving mouth-to-mouth resuscitation to the tiny rodent. The tale was told by Kerry's daughter Alexandra to show the human side of her dad who some have branded as dour."
Kerry wouldn’t know which end of a hamster to blow into.
