One day, when we were canoeing down the Bow River, in Western Alberta, we came upon a shivering, frightened prarie dog on a ledge about a foot above the river. There was no way for the prarie dog to escape the ledge, save jumping back in to the frigid water. We pulled the canoe up to the ledge, and Rex held out his oar. The prarie dog obviously realized that it had run out of options, so he meekly stepped onto the oar and allowed Rex to pull him onto our canoe, and into a gym bag filled with warm clothing and towels. We paddled further down the river, and about an hour later Rex unzipped the gym bag to check on our passenger. The poor little guy was still shaking, possibly hypothermic, so the bag was zipped up and we continued on down the river. A couple of hours later, we checked on our furry friend once again, and this time the shaking had stopped. So, we pulled our canoe over to the bank got out and carried the gym bag up the hill to an open area. When Rex unzipped the bag, the little guy hopped out and ran about 12 feet away, stopped and stared at us for about a minute, then turned and disappeared. There is no doubt in our minds that the pause was to thank us for saving him.
