Chippewa Falls, WIS. (AP) --
Jeremy Majorowicz thought something was wrong when he saw a dog sitting on railroad tracks for at least two hours. But he didn't realize how wrong until he and several other men determined that the gray and white husky had been literally frozen to the ties in below zero weather.
The construction worker first saw the dog on the tracks before his crew called off work for the day Monday because of the cold, and headed to a restaurant. But the dog was still there when they returned 1 1/2 hours later.
"I like animals, and I didn't want to see it get hurt," Majorowicz said.
He approached the dog, and offered it a bit of a muffin, but the animal wouldn't bite.
"I have two dogs myself, so I didn't want to leave the dog if there was something wrong," Majorowicz said, so he called the police.
Police Officer Tim Strand said the dog was "shivering unmercifully" when he arrived and would not come to him, so he called animal control officer Al Heyde.
Heyde hooked the dog around the neck with a catch pole in an attempt to capture the dog, but it would not budge.
Strand then determined the dog was frozen to the railroad ties.

Some friends of our in Canada told us about the time their cat and dog had been playing in the snow, the dog came in when called but the cat didn't. The dog had slobbered on the cat and its wet hair was frozen solid to the ground. They found it in time and the cat wasn't hurt.
HEHEHEHEHEH! He sounds like a hoot!
Some day I will have to tell you about the trail of socks/ ambush my dog set for me, or the kleenex taunt. I was always a cat person until she came into my life, now I'm a confirmed dog person.
It is easy to have compassion for animals--they are not wicked.
Good news bump.
Yes indeed! Merry Christmas.
