8 lives left?
But if a dog barks at the police just once, it’s sayonara.
Still not bad. I’m down to 6.
That is so good that they have those things.
Another article mentioned that the public can buy and donate such pet oxygen masks to fire departments.
They gave the website too:
Reminds me of Mr. Deeds
The good guys.
Yay for the fire dept! A happy ending.
Also good training for the firefighters. This keeps them sharp.
Sometimes the police officer do employ common sense. Look up the North Arlington VA story about neighbors reporting a vicious pit bull on the loose. The responding officer realized the dog though loose was friendly, and coaxed it into his cruiser until the owner could be located (must have been wearing a collar & rabies tag).
Interesting when you think about it. A loose pit bull gets the benefit of the doubt, and all the dog killings we hear about take place inside a homeowner’s property line.
Anyway, glad to hear they saved the man’s cat. I have three, didn’t know about pet oxygen masks.
That dog was microchipped. See link posted here (thanks to FReeper kanawa):
Huge thanks to the responders who save life, any life!
