Dog survives 13 days on snowy mountain
Rescue team saves stranded pup.
A 2-year-old Bernese mountain dog named Ohly got spooked and ran off during a snow trek on a part of British Columbia’s Mount Seymour nearly two weeks ago.
Ohly’s family and friends tried to search for him, but with the dog in a ravine that’s so steep it’s known as “Suicide Gully,” the North Shore Rescue team stepped in so that the searchers weren’t putting themselves in danger.
The team found Ohly, but the scared dog kept running away. On Saturday, with the help of a helicopter, the team was finally able to recover to Ohly, and reunited him with his relieved family.

He was dehydrated, but otherwise O.K. after his 13-day adventure. The Goad family took to Facebook to thank the team, other volunteers and those whose donations covered the $9,000 cost of the rescue, calling Ohly’s return the “best Christmas present ever.”

Motherhood. It’s the most amazing, most confusing journey of your life. But it also comes with its fair share of ironies. Like, oh, baby is finally sleeping through the night, but it’s in your bed. Or the fact that you just bought baby a whole new slew of pacifiers, but baby now hates his paci.

The ugly truth: everyone overshares on Facebook. But, in the world of T.M.I., moms just might take the cake.
