Mustang didn't have enough rev to get himself out of the neighborhood pond, (middle, right) so Villa Hills Police Chief Michael Brown (top) commandeered a canoe on the way to the water to rescue the golden retriever. Mustang apparently got loose after the battery went out on his electric fence collar. Shelby Schmidt, of St. Petersburg, Fla., was visiting her aunt nearby and reported to police that the dog was stuck in the iced-in pond. She greeted the dog after it was rescued (middle, left). The dog's owner, Rebecca Nolan of the John Nolan Ford family, said it was a trying day; but after a visit to the vet, Mustang was fine.
