Winter Rescue of Dog in Icy River | Care2 Causes

The life force seemed to be draining from my body so quickly, like water down a drain. I somehow would have to push Alex up the embankment over my head. He is no small dog and I cannot even lift him into the car, but today I would have to find strength to raise him. I took him around the middle and lifted him to about waist level, just enough to get all his paws on the muddy incline which was almost completely vertical. I then bent my knees and began to push him up to chest level, to chin level and finally up over my head. I felt his paws grip the mud, he had control of his own weight, and I dare not look to see if he were losing his footing for fear that he’d slide back down and we’d have to start over again. I counted, “one, two, three” and then felt that he was stable enough for me to go about the task of getting myself out.
