We have a brand-new list of events up for this week, and will be adding to it more later today.
Kai, a 2-year-old Shiba Inu, fell four stories off the roof of his West End Avenue building, but survived. His owner brought him to the roof for a walk and he started jumping from roof to roof over a ledge. But then he chose the wrong ledge and fell. Police retrieved the pup, and he was taken to BluePearl Veterinarians. They put him in the ICU for three days and he emerged alive, but unable to see out of his right eye. The Upper West Side has a remarkable number of animals that have survived stunning falls, including cats that survived 14-story and 20-story falls. (NY Post)
