Dog Rescues Tennis Ball from Crevasse
Oliver, a Golden Retriever from the Boston, MA area, has rescued a family of five tennis balls that had fallen into a crevasse that opened up near his house.
“The snow has been so bad here this winter that we’re starting to see a massive ice sheet form in the backyard,” said Oliver’s roommate James McCalla. “It’s dangerous out there – you never know where the ice might split open. It’s three feet deep in most places. Sometimes even three and a half.”
According to McCalla, Oliver noticed that tennis balls at the bottom of one crevasse while out on “walkies.”
“He didn’t even hesitate,” said McCalla. “He just dove right in and rescued the balls. He’s a hero, if you ask me. They’d have been out there until spring if not for Ollie.”
Local media is reporting that the tennis balls are now resting comfortably in Oliver’s doggy bed.
