Dog or ?

We came home from work and about an hour later, Ed went to the backyard to feed the dogs but they weren't there! Or so he thought. He walked down the hill looking for him and this is what he found!
The tree was a dead cedar, and had fallen down at an angle. It was easy to get up the tree, even though he had to climb over a lot of small branches sticking out everywhere. As you can see from Ed standing next to him, he was pretty high up there!

He couldn't back down as there were too many branches in the way. He was standing on little ones with his toes, just barely. He really was stuck, and couldn't move. I had to hold onto the trunk and try to bend it down far enough for Ed to reach him. He had to break a bunch of branches out of the way so he could pull him off of it. As soon as his feet hit the ground, he ran for the water bowl and drank and drank!  Silly dog. He is always busy, playing with his ball, dragging a huge broken tree branch around the yard or digging hole looking for moles. He has killed at least 5 or 6 of them.

yep, I have one of them climbers. Little Mickey puts his back against the wall and walks up the side of the squirrel cage to about 6 ft high and comes out on the ledge in the middle of the window. He cant back up and its too high to jump off of so he's stuck till i get there to rescue him. Crazy dog!
