Romeo, Romeo

You have to love stories like this.

Nine days after the earthquake in Italy, rescue workers heard barking coming from the rubble and managed to find and fetch out a golden retriever, one Romeo, who had been trapped all that time.

The film shows that our Romeo seemed none the worse for his ordeal, and for being off his feed for all that time. He’s shown shaking off, and then running about and greeting his rescuers as if this were just another day in the life of a cheerful, Italian pooch.

I don’t know if this Romeo is a lover. But he’s certainly a survivor. Surely his people are delighted to have him back. The quake was a tragedy with the loss of at least 250 human lives. No way to sugar-coat this awful event. But this small bit of good news among the bad is still welcome.
