    Happy news

    Only one puppy left to find. And on a good note the girl who had 4 of the puppies has been evicted from her section 8 housing :) I hope she likes living on the streets just like these poor puppies have too.

    Kitty rescued after branching out

    It’s a good thing Fendi has nine lives — because the last 16 hours of this one, spent atop a 50-foot tree in Mattapan, were lousy.

    It started at about 10:30 Wednesday night, when 6-month-old Fendi ran out of Chrystal Jones’ Woodhaven Avenue home and headed for the nearest oak.

    “I was scared,” said Jones, Fendi’s owner. “My kids were saying the cat’s going to die.”

    A frightened Fendi was still clinging to a branch yesterday morning, which is when Jones called the Animal Rescue League of Boston.

    “We really fill in a critical gap,” said Jennifer Wooliscroft, an ARL spokeswoman. “The fire department is very busy handling the human side of things,” and can’t typically respond to calls about animals in distress.

    ARL makes hundreds of animal rescues every year, including last fall when a trapped cat was saved from a narrow air shaft in a Dorchester home. The agency operates on about $10 million a year — funded entirely by donations.

    Police shut down traffic on the street at about 1 p.m. yesterday to allow ARL rescuer Bill Tanguay to hoist himself up the tree with a rope. The commotion drove Fendi further up the tree, but he was lured down with some Fancy Feast cat food about an hour later.

    Fendi was loudly crying throughout the ordeal, while Jones and another ARL worker held a bedsheet underneath the tree in case the cat fell.

    “Those guys are really good at what they do,” Jones said. “I’m very relieved.”

    Fendi is fine — and inside.

    Couple finds $4,500 wedding ring in dog’s stomach
    By Associated Press | Thursday, January 5, 2012 | http://www.bostonherald.com | Offbeat News

    ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — A couple has found a suspect in the disappearance of their $4,500 wedding ring — their 10-month old basset hound.

    KOB-TV reported Wednesday that a veterinarian recently removed the ring from the dog named Coraline after X-rays showed it was lodged deep in her stomach and wasn’t coming out on its own.

    Albuquerque resident Rachelle Atkinson says she and her husband Scott had searched everywhere for the ring before beginning to suspect the dog ate it.

    The vet said basset hounds have a tendency to eat rocks.

    Atkinson says she now hides the ring while Coraline is off munching away at anything she can find.

    Dog rescued from Saugus pond

    SAUGUS — A Saugus man and his dog are safe after he waded out in waste-deep ice water Monday to save his black lab that had fallen through the ice at Walden Pond, said Saugus Fire Capt. Arthur Sinclair.

    “A kid was walking the dog and the dog went out on the ice and then broke through,” said Sinclair. “The kid called his father and he came down and went through the ice waste-deep, and dragged him in.”

    Walden Pond sits at the end of Hawkes Street off of Route 1 North.

    Sinclair said the man had already rescued the dog by the time firefighters arrived, but noted it’s not recommended people attempt such a rescue on their own.

    “It’s pretty deep up there, but it’s a really gradual slope off the shore,” said Sinclair. “It’s very dangerous. At that point are we going to have a dog and person in the water? Luckily he got him out and they live right close by so he went home and got out of his wet clothes. Everyone seemed OK.”

    Sinclair said the ice on the pond hasn’t had much time to build up with the recent above-average temperatures, even with this few day cold stretch.

    “We haven’t had ice for very long so it’s not very thick to begin with,” said Sinclair. “It’s still clear and you can see through it. He just trudged out there and went right through as soon as he stepped on it. We had sent the boat also … but he was out by the time we got there so everything worked out.”

    Sinclair said people aren’t supposed to be out on Walden Pond, which serves as a reservoir and provides drinking water for Lynn.

    “But I’m sure everyone that abuts it does,” said Sinclair.
