Default Red State Hero - Idaho Man Wades Into Icy Pond to Save 2 Dogs


Probably a retired policeman from somewhere that wasn't looking for glory. Idaho has
a lot of those. In any event, he certainly was a hero. The dogs' owners should be
warned, "next time they're allowed to roam free and get in harm's way, they won't be
returned to you."...AAC

Dogs are not our whole lives, but they make our lives whole....Roger Caras

Idaho Man Wades Into Icy Pond to Save 2 Dogs
Saturday, December 12, 2009

BOISE, Idaho The Idaho Humane Society says a pair of dogs rescued
from the frigid waters of an Ada County pond have been reunited with
their owners.

The organization says a good Samaritan noticed the yellow Labrador
retrievers in distress at the pond on Friday and after securing a rope
around his waist, waded into the icy waters to save the dogs.

Animal control officer Jason Staley says the man brought the animals
to safety and then jumped into a car to get warm and drove away. He
was not identified.

The dogs were transported to the humane society's medical center and
treated.

Absolutely excellent quote!

Hang on a sec, I'm gonna read that out loud to my dogs (2 Sheppards,
retired police doggies, 1 Beagle)....

HA! They all sat up and commenced tail wagging!

AaaaHAHAHAHA!!

Decent humans (not DemocRATs) have that stuff called guilt, shame,
etc.

Dogs are not really too bothered by that stuff...

However YOU started something with my dogs! Used to be I'd swivel my
desk chair around to go get a coffee or whatever and my dogs would
largely ignore me because they have highly accurate internal atomic
clocks so they already know when treat-time is or isn't.

Now, thanks to YOU, I swivel my desk chair around and they perk up
waiting for another reading!

Hahahahah!!

Mrs. PG says, "They don't even know what yer sayin', they're just
dogs, and two of 'em were in a union so they can't be all that smart."

So I take the dogs down to the family room, I sit, dogs sit, then I
stand holding a piece of paper AND THE DOGS PERK UP. I sit, give Mrs.
PG the piece of paper, dare her to try it, she stands holding the
paper and the dogs ignore her! I successfully repeat the
experiment...

And Mrs. PG gets snippy, "And I suppose you think that means WHAT?"

Hahahahah!!

We have a Socialist Division of Labor.

PG handles midday snacks, before and after midday snack walks, and
last-call walk.

Mrs. PG handles dinner and after-dinner walk.

Yep. They were 4-legged cops. Not rescue doggies, not cadaver
doggies, not bomb-sniffers. They were real cops. Y'know when you see
on TV the officer decide to send the doggie after a fleeing snack? And
then a couple of minutes later you hear that snack begging GOD HIMSELF
AND ALL HIS ANGELS for help? That's what these doggies did.

We attended a week-long training program to transition them (and that
was after they had initially been transitioned from being cops).
During their original transition the two dogs became friends so we
decided to take both. (I know, I'm such a softy...)

Bad News: Whenever they see any non-white person they stop and point.
(It can be very awkward...)

Good News: They no longer chase down and eat every non-white person
they see.

1 male, 1 female. They're like brother and sister.

Same here. My Beagle is smarter, nicer, friendlier, and more
trustworthy than many humans I've met. And my Shepherds are smarter
and more dependable than every DemocRAT that has ever lived or ever
will live...
