 Help! Please help me up!

 You can do it, Pal! Take a running leap...

 But I can't, Dad! I need help!

 All rightie, Pal. Here you go!

LOVE IT! so glad he helped him up because i was getting really nervous about the dog falling through the ice that looks like it is breaking up further out. i love the shot of him pulling the dog up. in St Pete we lived on a street that the other end from us was waterfront, a man had a black lab, the lab would jump off the dock and swim the the sea wall and climb the ladder they built for him.

Great series!! You got all the action, without making the guy feel self-conscious!!

Buttons said...

LOVE THIS love like no other. B

Judy said...

Great capture of this! I'm glad he didn't fall in, looks like open water up ahead.

Yikes … that could have been a disaster! Happy to see the dog was rescued but shows how in a split second you can go from solid ice to sinking down. Suddenly I have this urge for a warm blanket and cozy fire. :)

That was a great little story and it had a happy ending too!

oh, this made me smile!

Nice series that really didn't even need any dialogue. The pictures told the story. Well done.

Paul in Powell River said...

very, very good - as the previous poster said, doesn't even need dialogue!!

ladyfi said...

Phew - that was close!

RedPat said...

You scared me - I thought he was going in!

David Thomas said...

Nicely done photos capturing drama are compelling.

Lowell said...

Fantastic series, EG! Did these two know you were photographing them? That's a beautiful dog; reminds me of our Haley! She'd get in trouble sometimes, too, and want to be pulled out (of our pool!)...

Doggie, doggie, fussing up in a dangerous place, eh eh
God bless you!

Awesome series!

Lowell said...

Me again! I made the switch because I'm frustrated with Blogger, esp. since Google took over. I dislike Google and now they're forcing their new formats on us.

Also, I wanted a larger and easier venue to do more things than must post blog photos. This gives that to me. I can easily do galleries and slideshows, videos, etc.

There are so many more options with a regular website.

How touching <3

I was afraid the dog could fall in cold water! But luckily, there's a good ending to that story, and a pretty love and trust affair!

Man is a dog's best friend.

Fun sequence, EG. Although ice can be slippery and dangerous in many ways. Was this today? You have that much of the white stuff still?

Susan said...

Awww, so cute! Love this.

Sylvia K said...

Oh, what a fun series! I love it! Glad he got help getting out of the water -- after all, sniffing is very important!!! Wonderful, EG!

Gary said...

All dogs should be off the ice now. It's not safe.

Lesley said...

It didn't look that big of a leap...until I had a second viewing of your first photo! No wonder he needed help!

So glad this dog and owner resolved the situation as all too often you hear of owners perishing while trying to rescue dog. So sad for all concerned.

Vita Stunder said...

I'm glad the dog and owner resolved the situation!

Great series!

Denise said...

Oh that's sweet and great photos.

Stephanie said...

Very cute! Nice you captured this.

Andrea said...

Oh this post is so cute, how so loving the man is! The true love between them shows very well in your photos. On the other hand, you are still in the midst of winter, while we here just started our dry season and the temperature already soared to 34.5C the other day. That is so much higher than the last year at this period, i am scared when we reached the peak in April. OMG, what's happening to our world!

Jack said...

What a great series, EG! Man's best friend.

Gillian Olson said...

That's a nice story that you are telling here with pictures. Glad the dog got onto safer ground.

jewaicious said...

Poor thing. I am so glad "daddy" was there to the rescue.

Beautiful captures of the freezing moment.

Randy said...

Very sweet.

Dianne said...

Just gorgeous ..... Beautiful dog. ..with a lovely Dad.

Randi said...

Such a lovely story!

Small City Scenes said...

Nice set of shots. That could have turned out a lot worse. I always like a happy ending. MB

Jenn Jilks said...

I wish people would keep animals off of the ice like that.
Dangerous time of year.
We have -17 this a.m. and expecting 13+ C. Wed.? Th? My late ex-father-in-law lost a dog on the river like this. So sad.
Cheers from Cottage Country!

Jenny Woolf said...

Dogs can be pesky things! :)

Rebecca said...

Cute, I was holding my breath worried he fell in. I am relieved now. :)

Viola said...

My heart melted.. as I saw the rescue.. glad the dog didn't go through the ice and into the biten cold water!!

Lovely pictures! :)

Poor little doggie. He's a cute one and evidently his master loves him to help out like that.
