Pooch Freed From Crack In A Boulder

By Robert Paul Reyes

"Rescuers in California said they doused a dog in vegetable oil to free it from a tight spot in the narrow crack of a boulder."


Only a silly pooch would get himself in this predicament. Dogs are loyal and friendly, but they ain`t too bright.


At first rescue workers used an extraction tool to try to pry the boulder apart, and then they used air bags to attempt to widen the crack -- both to no avail.

The the brainiacs realized that a pooch will give more than a boulder, so they doused the creature in vegetable oil and pulled it free.

The mutt was unharmed, but I have a feeling it won`t be long before he finds himself in a tight spot again.
