So the dog picked his cell phone from out of his pants, turned it on, pawed 911 and in very simple English asked for help, then gave the GPS coordinates to the dispatcher. He then called the man's wife to assure her that everything would be OK. Amazing.

I didn't actually read the article, but that's what I assumed happened. Smart dog!

Topix has to damn many ads on their page. It is a wonder anyone can see the STORY.

It's called "Paying for the site". They could always go the subscription route and charge you $20 a month. If you're not smart enough to block the ads, you'll have to live with them.

Dude - Alaska. That's like walking alone to the Dunkin' Doughnuts at the end of the street in any other US town.

Injured neck, dislocated arms, plural, frostbite. He says he had to be saved by his dog.

Maybe an incident like this is why Alaska is underpopulated....

Just proves once more we are much better off with dogs than cats... especially when outside our homes.
