How cool is this? Coincidence/synchronicity can be a beautiful thing at times. Too bad the dog in question will never be able to realize how amazingly he beat the odds in this freak occurance...or will he?



George, a 2-year-old Basset Hound from South Heindley, West Yorkshire, U.K., was strangled by a phone cord — and miraculously saved his own life by calling 999, the British equivalent of 911, reports The Sun.

George knocked over a heavy-duty, old-fashioned phone in owner Steve Brown’s home; he became tangled in the cord and wound up with it wrapped around his neck. Somehow, George — in the midst of choking — managed to dial 999 with his paw.

The emergency operator heard heavy breathing and gasping on the other end and alerted the authorities, who entered the house with the help of a neighbor...

Whoa that is one lucky dog!
Or maybe all dogs are Aliens and this one blew its cover out of desperation.

Oh,

This story, while cute as a button, is not as it seems. The dog did not dial 999 because he knew it was the emergency line. i'm pretty sure in his struggle, he leaned on the phones key pad and it dialed 999.

Now, if this were in America, and the dog dialed 911, THEN yes, I can see where it would seem plausible because he would have to have dialed two separate numbers. But not the same three numbers. That's just being lucky. IMO

I don't think any one was suggesting otherwise.

I disagree.

This dog definitely dialed the emergency number on purpose.
