Missing 40 days, Lab trapped in hole found alive
Here’s one for all owners of overweight old Labrador retrievers. One-time bird-hunter Buck, 13, was found alive last week after being trapped for 40 days in a hole adjacent to a creek near Los Gatos, Calif. His fur had been chewed by bugs and rodents, and he was 50 pounds lighter than when he went missing on Jan 6. “Fortunately, he was a little overweight before, so I think he was living off of that,” said his owner, Terina Held.
