Good neighbor rescues Herminie neighbor's imperiled dog

Tuesday, Dec. 25, 2012, 10:22 p.m.
 

A Herminie woman was helped by a neighbor after a Christmas emergency involving her dog.

Kendy Dimon of 617 Sewickley Ave. was bringing her dogs back inside the house at about 12:30 p.m. Tuesday when she noticed her 8-year-old Pekingese, Scrappy, was missing.

“I was hollering for him and he wasn't in any of his usual hiding places,” Dimon said. “I heard the squeal of the tires, two thuds and (Scrappy) yelp and then the car stopped to help.”

The dog had fallen under the guide rail over the hillside of Sewickley Avenue after the accident, so Dimon called neighbor Eric Kline.

Kline, who also serves as Herminie's fire chief, was able to climb down the hillside to retrieve the dog.

“Once I picked him up, he just wanted to get out of there,” Kline said.

The dog was conscious, but Dimon planned to take it to be checked by a veterinarian, she said.

The driver and her husband stopped to offer their apologies and help in paying any medical bills.

Dimon said she greatly appreciated the holiday help from Kline, who she has known for 13 years.

“Thank you for the Christmas present,” she told him as she wrapped Scrappy in a blanket on the front porch of her home.
