"A trucker found the 11-year-old mixed breed dog in Amarillo a week ago and brought her to a Denton veterinary hospital — 1,600 miles away from her Castle Rock, Wash. home.
"Gail Scott was shocked when the North Texas animal hospital called to say they'd found her dog, who was identified through an implanted microchip. "How did my dog get to Texas?" she recalls asking…
"Scott, who adopted Carla in 1998 from a Washington pound, has asked the animal hospital to put the dog up for adoption. She said it would be too hard to get Carla back to Washington because it's too cold for her to fly in the cargo area of a plane and too expensive to hire someone to drive her home.
"The Flower Mound Human Society is now caring for Carla and looking for a family to adopt her. At least one person has expressed interest."
And humans say we lick strange things…
"The Cleveland radio sidekick apparently missed that sage advice: Don't lick a bug-zapper. Dieter learned a harsh lesson Friday during a stunt on "Rover's Morning Glory" on "Xtreme Radio" (WXTM FM/92.3). He plugged in a dirty, back-porch hanging contraption and stuck his tongue on the wire grate."

"An Italian man who believes he's a cat had to be rescued by firemen when he got stuck up a tree. Shoppers spotted the man at the top of the tree mewing for help and called rescue services after he was still there more than an hour later.
"Attempts by local kids to coax him down with a saucer of milk failed, and as a result the 46-year-old cat-man had to be carried down a ladder by firemen. He was taken to hospital in Milan where he is undergoing psychiatric tests, news website Tgcom reported."

What the heck is this person talking about? Are they that stupid that they think the airlines would allow pets to freeze to death in the cargo hold of the airplane?
Most airlines have air conditioned trucks they keep the pets in until take-off time so the pets don't overheat in the cargo hold area until take off when the air conditioner goes on in the cargo area.
Amen! Not only that, but you know a hundred people would be willing to help Carla get home--including dozens of truckers who would probably drive her if the owner asked.10:23 AM
Sounds like Carla will be better off with a new human.
Since animals are so intelligent, Carla may have wanted to put herself as many miles away from her original human as possible. This is one smart dog.
