Our furry friends often run into trouble outside the house.
There are all sorts of pitfalls; wild animals, busy streets, things they should never try to eat, etc.
And sometimes, there are literally pitfalls.
Pets falling into wells is hardly a new phenomenon and when it happens, it can be extremely difficult to get them out.
Not only are wells deep and narrow, but pets don’t have grasping hands and can’t grab a hold of anything that might help them.
Like a rope, for example.
But one special pet wasn’t about to let that stop her!
Rescuers heard crying and splashing coming from a well and when they looked in, they spotted a very wet, very scared dog.
They knew they needed to act fast, so they dropped a rope, hoping against hope…
The dog can’t grab with its paws, no, but it can grasp with its teeth!
And that’s what it did, but it took a few tries. Ten, to be exact.
That’s right, on the tenth try, the dog managed to hold the rope in its teeth long enough to be pulled free of the dangerous well.
Onlookers were impressed. One said:
“That’s one smart dog, My dog would have just look at me with a ‘come get me look’ if I lowered a rope.“
Another added that none of his three dogs would’ve even had the sense to try biting the rope.
Yes, it’s true, some breeds are smarter and more inventive than others.
But this one really takes the cake, doesn’t it? With the help of a determined rescuer, she’s now free and clear.
Just watching her try again and again is invigorating and the end result…
Well, I could watch that over and over again. 😉
