Among the 10 strangest animal incidents are two amazing tales of survival for dogs, one featuring a Chihuahua and the other a Staffordshire Bull Terrier puppy. Read on for these amazing tales of survival, as reported by Gracie Murano for Oddee.com.
Tiny Chihuahua Blown Away by Strong Wind
The Utleys of Waterford Township, MI, had set up a booth at a flea marketwhen Tinker Bell, a 6-pound Chihuahua who had been standing on top of it, just flew away like a flimsy piece of paper dragged by 70-mile-an-hour winds. The good news is that, with the aid of a pet psychic, Dorothy and Lavern found a dirty and hungry Tinker Bell in a wooded area about a mile away.
Puppy Survives Miraculously After Swallowing a 10 Inch Toy Arrow
Puppies are known for chewing and eating everything and anything. But Betty the bull terrier must have regretted her greed and curiosity after she swallowed a 10-inch plastic arrow that was almost as long as herself. Thankfully, the Staffordshire bull terrier survived after undergoing emergency surgery to remove the item after it became lodged halfway through her body from the aesophagus to her small intestine. Her owner, Emma Watson, 38, believes her pet gobbled up the arrow after disappearing into her seven-year-old daughter Lilly-Jay’s playhouse when a gust of wind opened the door.
The dog is now recovering, but she doesn’t seem to have learned her lesson; as soon as she got home she tried to eat the TV remote control.
