I was hiking in the smoky mountains, by a waterfall, and a friend throw a tennis ball over ice right into the waterfall (IDIOT). Koda(10 month old shepherd) being ball crazy races over the ice to get the ball and falls through where the waterfall was crashing. She could not get up again because the ice was to thin and kept breaking. At this point, im taking of my shoes to rescue her but my boyfriend beats me to it, and jumps in after her. She was so tired from keeping her head up, she was resting it on the ice, it was heartbreaking. At one point I thought my boyfriend was going to give up because it was so cold! Luckly she was saved! And totally unaware she almost died, just waging her tail and went to bring a stick to play with! Im very lucky my boyfriend was there to help her or she would not have made it. I wonder if we had an older shepherd present if it would rescue her. Just warning anyone who goes hiking around river and lakes, beware of thin ice, dogs can also get trapped underneath the ice which would be very hard to save

here are some pictures of the hero, falls and koda :)

It was an honest mistake, I really don't blame him, just learned from the situation. We did try calling Koda back, but she was too far out.
Everyone gets steaks ! :)
