A Pennsylvania woman on vacation in Florida took a tip from two dolphins to save a lost Doberman Pinscher that got stranded on a sandbar.
When Audrey D'Alessandro and her husband, Sam, walked out of their home on Marco Island, near Naples, Fla., to go fishing, "we saw these two dolphins, and they were splashing and making this big commotion" in a canal behind their vacation home, she said.
Although it is not uncommon to see dolphins swimming through the canal on their way to the Gulf of Mexico, Audrey D'Alessandro said that this time, "they were just there, in one place, splashing water against the canal wall."

I just love posting an article that has a good ending.
I’m sure the sharks don’t think it was good news.
Flipper beat those sharks every week.
What that Flipper? Bud’s in trouble?................
PING this one over to you!
Animals taking care of each other.
Now, if they were only smart enough to stay away from fishing boats and their nets......

What about kangaroos?
I was bitten by a Doberman once. Not the dog’s fault, nor mine, just some idiot buddy of my grandparents insisting the dog was friendly and needed a strange little kid to pet it. The dog didn’t care for the idea, neither did I, and we both tried to communicate that to the supposed grownup. So I got my hand munched. I’m sure the dog could’ve done worse if he’d wanted to, but it was the only way left to him to express his misgivings at a foolish human grabbing my hand and putting it on his head.
Dobies are great dogs, ferocious when they ought to be, loyal, and they try their best to be reasonable in an often irrational human dominion.
That webpage took forever to load. In fact, it never did load completely. I bet I picked up a hundred cookies there. I gotta go flush the cache now.
No. Dolphins are not kangaroos. They don’t have pouches.
"Hey can you come get this dog off the sand bar? He keeps pooping and peeing in the water"
They know a pre hot dog when they see one.
If they don't contribute to society, if they don't pay taxes, if they don't have a right to vote, if they don't shop at WalMart, and most importantly, if they haven't figured out a way to avoid fishing nets then they ain't no member of the life form that I'm a proud member of.....
I don’t think it was the sharks that the dog needed to fear..... he was darn lucky that an alligator didn’t show up!
You just made me poop and pee in my pants! 8)
My cat once warned me that the rain gutters were overflowing and the runoff was about to damage the foundation of my house. Derp!
