Some individuals consider their dogs to be members of the family. When the creatures are in distress, their owners seek assistance. When this happens, the local fire department or police agency are usually called. The following story turns the animal in distress fable on its head.
When you hear stories about a creature in a tree, it’s usually a cat. But what occurs if a dog is the one who gets trapped in the tree?
In a comical twist of destiny, that is precisely what happened to one California dog as he followed a neighborhood cat up into the limbs of an ancient tree.
The dog usually comes to a halt at the base of the tree and continues to bark at whichever kitten is perched high in the branches. But this German shepherd had chosen to pursue the cat all the way up into the leafless tree’s limbs. That’s when the dog realized something important.
To assist, the local fire service was called in.
The local fire department was summoned to assist the boy who was stuck in the tree with no way out. The district immediately updated their Facebook status:
“You may know that our firefighters rescue cats from trees, but what about dogs?!?!?” That was their next call, just after Truck 30 and Engine 35 dropped off Santa.”
Baby, the dog, was trapped at the top of the tree. The cat sat contently on a limb that was just out of reach.
Everyone’s attention, including the baby’s, was focused on what she was intending to do with the cat once she captured him.
The cat, on the other hand, was clearly wiser than the dog that day, since he was able to climb without the help of the firefighters. Of course, once Baby was free of her ordeal.
On the District’s Facebook page, the firefighters announced the situation’s resolution:
I’m glad to hear everything worked well for this dog. We’re all pretty confident [she’ll] reconsider chasing cats up the next tree. ”
Baby and her frightened owner were reunited.
Baby was given some oxygen when they got to the ground as a precaution.
She was also reconnected with her mother, Sharon Thurston, who was overjoyed that Baby was safe and sound.
Thurston said that she and Baby still spot the cat on their walks around the area, but she is determined to keep Baby at her side so that she does not wind up back in a tree.
