On Frozen Pond

December 10, 2018

It’s time once again for my annual warning to keep your dog away from ice-covered bodies of water. Every year, I read about dogs who fall through the ice and must be rescued. In this case, tragically, the lady who tried to rescue the dog also fell through the ice and lost her life. (Video from WZZM13, story here.)

Keep your dog on the leash or in your yard if you live near water, and if the dog falls in, for goodness’ sake, don’t make yourself a second victim.

Until next time,
Good day, and good dog!
