From NBC4 in Washington, DC: Maryland firefighters had an interesting rescue run over the weekend when an 85-pound Border Collie named Siri fell into a 8-foot sinkhole near Annapolis.
Although it was deep, the sinkhole only measured about 2-feet by 2-feet, making it tricky for the firefighter to be lowered into the hole to get the dog. But, 90-minutes later, they were able to get the dog to the surface.
Siri was very much in need of a bath, but was otherwise fine.
Kudos to all the firefighters who took the time to care.
On the Ellen Show, Dennis Quaid discussed the controversy about possible dog abuse during filming. Quaid wasn’t present during the part of filming purporting to show the abuse, which was shown on an apparently heavily edited TMZ clip; however, he says he didn’t witness any hint of abuse while he was on-set.
This happened along I-95 in Flagler County, Florida, just north of Daytona Beach. The woman posted the video on Facebook, but couldn’t get a license plate number. I hope they weren’t going very far, but even 1 mile is too dangerous on the highway.
If you know this dog or this family, please contact the police!
