This saying comes from this nautical fact:
When lost or unsure of their position in coastal waters, ships would release the ship’s pet. This pet would head straight toward the nearest land, thus giving the vessel some sort of a navigational fix. The sailors were so fond of this pet that they honored it by naming the tallest lookout platform on the ship after it. There are actually 2 “sayings” people use that are related to this pet. First with one or both answers wins!
(runner-ups will be posted)

WHAT IS THE SAYING?
