Dog Rescued After Falling Through Ice

I know a lot of the US is receiving lots of snow and cold temperatures right now, and chances are that small ponds and lakes are frozen solid. BUT, you never know where the weak spots are. Several ice fishermen were just rescued in Minnesota today and in Wisconsin a few days ago. So, it’s time for my annual reminder to keep your dog away from the water. It’s no joke when they fall through the ice, even if the dog is normally a strong swimmer.

And please, if your dog does fall in, call the professionals to rescue him. You don’t need to fall in, too.

Until next time,
Good day, and good dog!

Who can help!! She also uploaded a few pictures and a video of the cold Beagles. The post was shared over 6700 times, prompting action from the Wyandot County Sheriff and Humane Society.
