Just For a Change
« on: January 05, 2022, 05:16:57 pm »
After his owner slipped and fell 150 meters (nearly 500 feet) on Mount Velebit, an Alaskan malamute called North kept him warm for 13 hours until help arrived.

The Croatian Mountain Rescue Service (HGSS) praised an Alaskan malamute for rescuing his human, writing on Twitter that "friendship and love between man and dog knows no boundaries."

North, as the dog is called, and his owner were hiking on Mount Velebit on New Years' Day, at a height of about 1,700 meters (5,600 feet). Both man and dog slipped and fell some 150 meters (500 feet).

The incident left the hiker with a badly hurt leg, but the dog remained uninjured. North kept his master warm with his body heat for 13 hours until rescuers arrived.

A heartwarming story Alex. The creature below belongs to my 'Man Friday' and accompanies him every day during his time here.

He's wonderful and very protective to his two 'adopted' family members. Of course he's more than willing to extend this 'charge' to the log fire with his English compatriots.
