Fur-st Aid

doge_new_smallerDo you remember how Lassie used to always run off to tell someone about how Timmy fell in a well*, mine shaft, lake, or quicksand? And without fail, Lassie would find just what little Timmy needed?

Wonder what you would do if the situation were reversed and it was Lassie who needed the help? Wonder no longer!
