In animal welfare news, a team effort rescues a canine from icy waters. Eight-month-old Cardigan Welsh corgi Panda got free of her leash while on a walk with her caregiver Ms. Helen Start near Lake Champlain in Vermont, USA. The energetic puppy ran seven miles over the partially frozen lake. Ms. Start, who watched Panda with binoculars, informed North Hero Fire Chief Michael Murdock of the situation. After unsuccessful attempts by Chief Murdock and his crew to reach the adventurous canine, they approached her with an inflated boat. However, the ice gave way, and Panda fell in. She was quickly picked up from the frigid water. Using a pulley system, 50 emergency rescuers tugged the boat to shore. Fortunately Panda did not sustain any serious injuries.

Our heartfelt appreciation, courageous emergency personnel and volunteers, for your life-saving work. We wish you many safe outings, beautiful Panda, and Ms. Helen Start, in each other's fabulous company.
