April 2012. Apparently, a Basset Hound who lives in England was home alone when he ended up in a dire situation. He had knocked the telephone to the floor and became entangled in the phone wire which was wrapped tightly around his neck. He managed to dial 999 which is the same as dialing 911 (for those of us that live in the US) and saved his own life. Unbelievable!
Read the full story. If you don't have time to read it, you should at least check out the photos of this two year old Basset Hound. Made me smile, even laugh. Thank god this dude is okay now.
