BAY SHORE, N.Y. (AP) — Long Island firefighters went home with a great story to tell: They rescued a dog from the roof of a two-story house.
The Bay Shore Fire Department was called to help Rosie on Monday.
The department said in a statement that the homeowner was pet sitting and "had no idea how the dog got onto the roof."
It's estimated the medium-sized mutt was there about two hours.
Employing the time-honored cat-in-a-tree approach, the firefighters used a ladder to bring the canine aerialist back to earth.
