A group of grammar school students got more than they bargained for during gym class when they came upon a dog and his pal who was stuck in the mud. The students were running around Greenwood Pond as part of their gym class curriculum when they stumbled upon a trapped dog and his friend who was standing guard and looking very worried and nervous for his pal. It was a sight to behold and the kind-hearted students realized and got the news they needed to help out the canine as much as possible.
“It was a pretty short dog. It didn’t have very long legs so it was stuck in there pretty good and it couldn’t get out because its legs were too short,” Maev Cleary, a student, explained.
The smart students ended up grabbing some plank wood, put it in the mud and was able to get the dog successfully without getting stuck in the muddy dirt. One student pointed out the black dog who was right there by his friend and was just looking at the canine with such concern. The kids pointed out that while there were many people in the park walking around in the near vicinity of the dogs, not a single adult tried to help and assist the dogs in any way. That’s just such a shame, but luckily for the dogs, they had some Good Samaritan kids who were able and willing to help them out.
“The dogs were really scared at that time. They were like shivering and whimpering and all that stuff,” said Nate Stenberg, a student.
The students were able to rescue them and get them to a place where they can be safe and sound. Once the canines were both safe, the young kids were very excited over their good deed and for doing the right thing in order to save them. Thankfully, the dogs both had microchips, making it a lot easier to reunite the missing canines to their owner.
