Play­ful pup gets her head caught in a wine rack

rack in the hall­way and the dog’s un­for­tu­nate ap­proach of get­ting to them was to at­tempt to get through the wine rack. The fam­ily dashed out to see what all the noise was about only to find Ebony, who they got four weeks ago, leap­ing about wear­ing the wine rack. The gaps in the rack were the same size as the al­sa­tian’s head and they soon re­alised they needed to bring in spe­cial­ist help. They called the fire bri­gade and an en­gine turned up at the house. Eleven-year-old El­leanor Perry, a pupil at Home­wood School, Ten­ter­den, said: “It took one per­son to hold her down, my Dad hold­ing the wine cage, me sooth­ing her and two other fire peo­ple saw­ing – and even then it took half an hour to get her out.” An Ash­ford fire sta­tion spokesman, who may be more fa­mil­iar with cats up trees than dogs in wine racks, said: “We had to use hack­saws, bolt crop­pers, tin snips and pliers to cut away the sec­tion.” Ebony was not hurt but slightly shocked by her or­deal. The wine rack did not fare so well and went straight in the bin.
