Some stories from the media today
Macey, a pedigree Blue Great Dane gave birth to 16 pups!! Although, sadly, one died Mum and the other 15 are doing well. Apparently Macey was only expected to have a litter of 4 or 5
The Sun reports that fire chiefs rushed 18 crew, three engines, a land rover and a rescue boat to save a.......... trapped duck. Teams raced up to 35 miles to find "Daffy" a white Aylesbury duck trapped in a drainage tunnel. As you would expect residents complained about the cost, with one reitred fireman saying the duck got better treatment than people in the floods. Conveniently forgetting firemen and lifeboat crews coming from all across the country to Yorkshire.
And three fire crew abseiled down a roof shaft to save a trapped gull in Gloucester City centre
