Canine Colleague

Inch by inch they moved forward, attached by ropes around their waists. The ice was so cold they could feel it chilling their bones.

Carefully watching for any cracks that might appear in the ice, the man at the front of the line signaled for them to stop and listen.

They all did, hearing the ice groaning and over that the tired howling of exhaustion. They all knew what to do. Spread out, those at the front laid down and continued to inch ahead. Those further back held on tight to the ropes securing the men at the front.

They held those ropes tight they could not give an inch or they might slip and drown.

The howling was getting quieter now but no one could give up or relax their efforts. This was a valued member of their team who had saved many of them before.

The cry went up “Got her” slowly inch by inch they hauled her out. She was passed down the line across the frozen lake to the shore. As soon as she reached the bank she was wrapped up warmly in a moon blanket. And rushed off for medical treatment.

Later they visited her, luckily the Vet said she would be fine but this fabulous dog, part of their team had been within an inch of losing her life! Even so she was soon back working with them again.
