The dog who fell from the sky
A lot of us think our dogs were gifts from above, but here’s one that truly was.
A seven-year-old boy in Salinas, California, got a new puppy after it escaped from the clutches of a hawk and fell out of the sky into his backyard.
KSBW reported that the two-month-old puppy was dropped an estimated 30 feet before it was discovered by a seven-year-old named Taylor.
The dog has been adopted by Taylor’s family and named T.J. Heavenly.
The family believes that T.J. Heavenly somehow worked himself free of the hawk’s talons.
“If you look at him right now, he’s so wiggly,” Elaine Bouchard told the TV station. “And his nose; he’s such a little bulldozer, I can see him wiggling right out of the talons.”
The dog was taken to a veterinarian to get treated for wounds and dehydration before the family took him home for keeps.
“When God drops a puppy from the sky, you keep it,” Bouchard said.
