Dog, that got hit by a car, took himself to the vet.
Injured Dog Amazes By Taking Self To Vet



The 6-year-old dog, Scooby, ran away from his owners when his collar ring snapped during a recent thunderstorm. As he was running across a road a vehicle hit him, injuring his leg and tail.

Scooby then somehow walked miles to a local animal clinic and was waiting on the doorstep when employees arrived for work.

"He obviously knew this was the place to get help," Scooby's owner Shirley Farris said. "There are subdivisions with hundreds and hundreds of houses between me and the vets office, there are three lanes and there is a mini mall. How he knew to take himself to the vet, I don't know."

Workers said Scooby followed them inside and walked straight into the operating room.

He knew that is where he goes to get fixed up. That is so cute and amazing!

Now the real question is would a CAT do that? :evilgrin:

4. Few years back, there was a little segment on Animal Planet about a kitty
that got his mouth caught on his collar. He was all alone and stuck. So he knocked the telephone handset off of its cradle and hit the speed dial pre-set button for 911.

Animal Planet's segment included the audio of the 911 call. The operator was saying something like, "Listen to this cat screaming." She dispatched a unit to check out the situation. The cops cut the kitty's collar. They said he saved his own life.

So, in answer to your question, Yeah. :D

6. At which point, the Vet told the dog about this one time when
Donald Rumsfeld was briefing George W. Bush and before the joke even finished the dog had lept off the table headfirst and broken his neck.
