Happy ending for dog trapped in Miami Canal
"People saw poor Princess and waved down some help. Firefighters eventually had to get out some straps that they used to pull her out."
WSVN reports that Princess' owner, Carmen Palacios, realized that her dog was gone when her parents arrived at her home -- as they do every morning -- and Princess didn't greet them at the door.
When firefighters were called for reports of a dog swimming in a canal, they believed 6-year-old Princess had been swimming for a long time. According to WFOR, rescuers slipped straps around her and lifted her out of the water.
"[She] stood right up and tried to shake the water off on all of us, and she was happy to be out, you could tell."
Princess was taken to animal services until her owner got her back -- and a very sweet reunion followed.
He exclaimed, "Princess!"
Princess and her family are back together again. That's what we'd call a fairy-tale ending.
