Dog Survives Swimming in Icy Pond for 40 Minutes

 |  Dec 17th 2010  |   5 Contributions

Dogsters, it's that time of year again when ponds and lakes look nice and solid to a dog and then CRACK! The dog falls through the ice. Some make it, many don't. The above video ends happily, fortunately (except the dog's owners have not yet been found). So far this year I've seen a few stories about dogs falling through the ice and surviving, and a couple of stories about dogs who didn't make it. And the season is still very young.

Be careful out there! And let your dog pals who live near potentially dangerous bodies of water know they need to be extra careful. Your words may save a life.
