Cairo's Kin Survives Gas Chamber


Our dog brought this CNN story to my attention:

Cast into a city gas chamber to be euthanized with other unwanted or unclaimed dogs, it appeared the roughly year-old Basenji mix had simply run out of luck -- and time.

But this canine had other ideas.

When the death chamber's door swung open Monday, the dog now dubbed Quentin -- for California's forbidding San Quentin State Prison -- stood very much alive, his tail and tongue wagging.

Animal-control supervisor Rosemary Ficken had never seen such a survivor, and she didn't have the nerve to slam the door shut again.

This 30-pound animal, she believed, beat the odds and should live on.

Cairo is what we call a "shepenji", part German Shep, part Basenji. She tells me that Basenjis are just smarter and heartier than other dogs, so while relieved that Quentin survived this scary event (and sad that the other dogs were not so lucky), she's not surprised. Now she has completely forgotten this incident and is begging to go play. Who am I to argue?
