You really do have to love a happy ending and good timing!  A lieutenant from the Bourne Fire Department saved a dog trapped on Queen Sewell Pond this morning.

Firefighters responded to Queen Sewell Pond around 12:37 p.m. Wednesday to help a dog, named Ruby, who was trapped on the ice. According to Fox News, upon arrival, a fire lieutenant put on a suit designed to protect him from the elements and went out to get Ruby. The dog was about 40 yards from the shore on part of the ice that had broken from the weight of the animal.

The lieutenant was tethered to shore once he reached Ruby, who was showing signs of distress. Both were pulled safely to shore. Ruby's owner was standing by waiting for her, and the dog was immediately taken to the vet for an exam.

The rescue only took about eight minutes.
