Oh my goodness - How on earth did you get the dog out of such a deep hole, Hawka?
We have a 90 foot well here, and have now covered it over with an African style "wishing well" cover, because I too was scared of this sort of thing happening
My son and grandson were the ones out there, lucky close to home so grandson brought the rest of the dogs home, got grandpa and ropes. Grandpa went down the hole with ropes on, fastened Alice in a harness, they pulled her up, then back went the rope for him. They pulled him up with a lot of difficulty since the hole was about 5 x 8' at the bottom, then narrowed to the size of a large tire at the top, too wide too get his feet on the sides. My DIL and I were sitting here on pins and needles, lucky my daughter was at work and had no clue as she is the most paranoid of any of us. They stayed back to cover the hole and cleared the area and roped it off so hopefully nothing will happen there again. Problem is no body knows if there are more holes like this back there. The called the fire rescue, guess they only rescue animals on the TV shows, but we figured if husband got stuck down there, then they would come. What a day!
