Embarrassing photo of Laddy taken by Ron Stevenson, his rescuer
File this under: Another way cats are superior to dogs.
A seven-year-old Border Collie in Iowa who had been missing for two days was found in a tree two blocks from home.
Resident Ron Stevenson was working in his yard when he heard a dog whining. He had heard a dog barking earlier, but now it was more like, "Help me." He followed the sound, finally spotting Laddy at least ten feet up the tree. Apparently he had been chasing a squirrel and got too scared to come down.
A police officer who had seen the flyers united Laddy with owner Cynthia Weeks.
We understand the squirrels were quite amused.
