A big dog accidentally fell in a frozen lake. You can just imagine the sad plight of the dog while he tried to get out of the cold water but just couldn’t. He was half in the water and the water must have been terribly cold.
The cold can be quite harsh and it can take the life of a person – much more a dog. It was a good thing that some men were able to hear the dog’s cries despite being a number of miles away from the lake where the dog was trapped.
The men looked for the source of the cries and when they did, they knew that they had to work fast or else the dog could suffer a lot. They knew it was going to be a challenge since the ice could break under their weight while they tried to reach the dog.
The men took some rope and tied it to the waist of one of them. That man carefully made his way to where the dog was. He even had to crawl on some parts so that the ice wouldn’t break. He had to do it as quick as he could without sacrificing his own safety.
The man was able to take hold of the dog and they were able to bring the man and the dog back to safe shore. Then they quickly did everything they could to warm up the dog. They brought blankets and covered him with it.
It took a while for them to bring back the dog to normal temperatures but they did all that they could. They do not want this poor dog to die. Not on their watch!
It was a good thing that he did. They named him Charlie and they were also able to find him a home that would adopt him. Charlie’s rescuers still come to visit him from time to time and they are happy to know that he is taken care of well.
