Dolphins have constantly been appreciated for their stunning form and graceful swim style. Still, there is much more to these marine critters than meets the eye. They are actually perceptive animals, capable of associating with one another in intimate ways. These dolphins verified their understanding nature when they came across a pet dog drowning.
When a Doberman fell into the canal on Marco Island, Florida, there were no humans around to rescue him. Nobody knew that he had fell, and it started to appear like the dog ran out luck. Luckily, someone did come to his rescue.
The creatures that helped the drowning dog were not humans; they were dolphins. The dolphins saw the pup flailing around in the water and swam closer to investigate. They quickly recognized that something wasn't right.
The pup was stuck in the canal. The wall that separated the water from the land was too great for the Doberman to climb up. He came to be frantic as he began to lose hope that somebody would rescue him.
The dolphins may not have had arms or legs, but they discovered a way to help the dog. They swam around the area creating as much noise as possible. "In fact, they created so much racket that some folks who resided close-by happened to hear them and looked into why they were being so rowdy," Snackay documents. "Then they saw the dog caught below the wall in the canal water."
At last, a rescue was in progress. Firemen raced to the commotion and carried the dog out of the water. He was quite shaken up, but overall he was okay.
If it had not been for these dolphins, the dog most likely would not have survived. The firefighters determined that the dog had been stuck for nearly 15 hours-- that is a very long time to keep swimming, particularly if you are not a sea animal. To make matters worse, the pup went all that period without anything to drink. Since the canal was full of salt water, trying to take a drink would have only dehydrated him far more.
This was one tough pup, but he owes his reclaimed safety and security to these sympathetic dolphins. They acknowledged a complication and did anything they could to restore him to his life on the land.
This account is a reminder that humans are not the only knowledgeable beings on the planet. There is a whole network of animals who are capable of developing solid bonds and establishing emotional reactions. As we continue to learn more about ocean life, we can build a closer community with these creatures.
