Dog found after 4 days....such a sweet - touching story. Made me cry both times I've seen it! Good tears, though! That owner saying "I got my dog, I got my dog" is ringing in my ears!

I couldn't get the audio ~ too choppy. How did the dog become buried alive way down there and how did they even know it was WAY DOWN THERE ? was the dog okay afterwards ? Poor baby !!!

I am sorry that link didn't work for you, it plays well for me. It is on cnn.com videos.

Here's another site with a little of the story and a link to the video.

They didn't say exactly how he got there, just fell into a storm drain. They got him out, 14 yr old dalmation and off to the vet. Nothing on status, I think the rescue happened today.

Hope the other link works for you.

Nahhhh..it's just my ancient 'puter being finicky but the transcript more or less covered it. Wow ~ can you imagine ! Four days and fourteen years old ~ that's one brave doggy and two wonderful parents !!

It made me want to cry.

What a wonderful owner, kinda made me think what he did for his dog is the same dedication and loyalty that dogs show to their owners everyday.
