    Dog frozen to Wis. sidewalk; fat helped it survive

    SHEBOYGAN, Wis. – A dog weighing more than 120 pounds survived being frozen to a sidewalk overnight, probably because he was insulated by layers of fat, authorities said. The Sheboygan County Humane Society says the "morbidly obese" dog, an aging border collie mix named Jiffy, froze to the sidewalk when he was left out overnight Wednesday. Shelter manager Carey Payne says few dogs could survive the single-digit temperatures, and it was probably the fat that made the difference......

    No wonder, the dog was named after peanut butter.
    Why not name him liver damage, or DUI for gods sake lol ;D

    It's not the dogs fault it is fat.
    Not his fault his A**h**e owners left him ouside to freeze to death, either.
    Poor dog.
    I was thinking about the irony here.
    So the owner over-fed the dog, possibly for years, and the dog became obese.
    Little did the owner know that someday enabling his dog to get fat would save the dogs life when the absent minded owner left the dog out to freeze, because he/she allowed the dog to bloat, the dog would be saved by being fat!
    How freakn' ironic.

    How does a dog get frozen to the ground? When I lived in Minnesota we would bring in our dog at night if it got below Zero, but even when it was 0-32 degrees he never had a problem with getting frozen... hmmm...

    Guess if I fall down drunk and wind up sleeping on the sidewalk, I will be safe until Wildwoman finds me.... ;D

    There is a beer distributor next to the school I work at...(kinda weird now that a typed it) and there is a dog that lives there. The owner leaves him there over night and I don't think he gets fed very well. Everyday the dog walks up the stairs and into our loading dock area. We all feed and pet him. It's just kinda heart warming.

    I like that you are feeding him.
    Maybe you should call animal control?
    I know sometimes they will end up not getting adopted, so, is the dog worth one of you guys taking home.
    Sounds like he'd be better off with someone else.
