NEWMAN THE HERO
This little beauty is Drizzle. She was outside with her best friend Peke Newman/Newmie. There is a pond outside and somehow Drizzle fell into the pond-- but Newman immediately began screaming and dizzing at the sides to try and help her. Newman's loud screaming alerted the owners who raced outside and grabbed her. Newman was also digging at the sides of the pond to get to Drizzle, who was trying to hang on to the side of the pond.
Her owners think Drizzle tried to walk on this several times since there was ice on it. They wonder how many times she tried it before going through the ice. She had fallen through the ice sheet and her owners were terrified of hypothermia.
Drizzle was soaking wet and cold, but her owners began to warm her up with blankets. Newman would not leave her side. He kept sniffing her to make sure she was okay. By the end of the day, they were both playing with squeaky toys and jumping on each other.
Newman is my Peke hero today!!! Without his help, Drizzle would not have made it. Her owners want to tell everyone to be very careful if you have water features in your yard. Cover them, fence around them. Drizzle and Newman's owners now have a fence around the water area.
