“Here’s something you’d like, big guy,” Bernie says. I hurry into the office, thinking: treat! Wouldn’t you? But there’s no treat. Bernie’s at the computer. “They’ve got a whole team of dog lifeguards in Italy, 300 of them so far, all trained at the Italian School of Canine Lifeguards. The dogs wear a harness or tow a buoy or raft that swimmers in trouble can grab onto. Sometimes they even leap out of helicopters or speedboats.”
Wow! Where’s Italy, again?
“Says here that the school will train any breed as long as they weigh at least 66 pounds – no problem there, Chet – but they work mostly with Labs, Newfs and goldens – well, you’ve got all that and more, except maybe not the golden part. Any golden in you?”
What was the question? More important, when were we checking out this school?
Hat tip – Wookie.
