Hey, it's Scrappy! Oh, what a day we had. You are looking at my three rescuers from Ladder one company in Norfolk. My human was beside herself when the key fob locked me, her handbag, and her mobile phone in the car. This after a day at the Vet where they put me in the 'Cone of Shame', to prevent me from licking my wounded paw. I was puppy drunk and helpless. Of course the human first tried to call Triple-A, where she has been a member since 1981. "It will be at least 2 hours they said", but my human protested, "There's a dog locked in the car". Welp, that is when you have to call in the Big Dawgs. In this case, it comes in the form of First Responders with hearts of gold. They worked for more than 30 minutes attempting to get a wire in just the right spot to unlock the door. It was not easy, and you could sense the urgency and intensity of seeing my cute eyes staring back in the dark car in the station parking lot. Finally, freedom and hug from Ryan, Mark, and Ray. You are simply the best. P.S. Happy First Responders Day! Norfolk Fire & Rescue Service
