Dog Rescued From Recliner
Isn’t it cats who have nine lives?
It's the dog vs the furniture.

Firefighters in Naperville, IL were called in for one of their strangest rescues ever. A small dog was caught inside a reclining chair, which seems to have caused the electronic controls to cease working. In order to get him out, firefighters sawed apart the chair.

 
A nurse’s aide had kept the dog alive until rescuers arrived by hanging on the chair enough to relieve some of the pressure on the dog and allow him to breathe. The dog, Ebonyser, did sustain some nerve damage, but is expected to be fine. Painkillers are helping the terrier sleep and heal.
 
This was an unlucky accident, but fortunately quick thinking and quick action helped Ebonyser survive. Do you know of a dog who lived through an odd incident?
