Best News Story of the Week

Sure, the Special Olympics are taking place in this city and Michael Ignatieff’s tour bus broke down – but there’s one story this week that stands out to me as being more fascinating than any of the others. 

“A veterinarian says a dog trapped in a car on a 32-degree day in eastern Pennsylvania honked the horn until he was rescued.  The chocolate Labrador was brought to her Macungie Animal Hospital after he had been in the car for about an hour.

She says Max’s owner had gone shopping and was unloading packages when she returned but forgot that Max was still in the car. She later heard the horn honking and looked outside several times but saw nothing amiss. Finally, she went outside and saw Max sitting in the driver’s seat, honking the horn. The owner immediately gave Max cold water to drink and wet him down with towels before rushing him to the clinic.  Max was very warm and panting heavily but had suffered no serious injuries.”

Which just proves that dogs are indeed smarter than people!
