Default Archie the Dog catches the train home alone

A black labrador called Archie, who got separated from his owner at a remote Scottish railway station, amazed his distraught master by simply jumping aboard the first train home all by himself. Not only did Archie catch the right train, he got off at the right station almost 20 miles away, according to British tabloid, The Mail on Sunday.

The whole amazing incident began after a day out in the country when owner Mike Taitt lost sight of Archie at Inverurie station, near Aberdeen in eastern Scotland.

After searching in vain for several hours Mike finally gave up for the evening and returned home hoping that someone would call him after spotting his pet's tag. Upon his return, Mike said he was shocked when rail staff called him to say Archie was waiting for him at Insch station - just three miles from home.

Puzzled as to how the dog could have made the twenty mile journey alone, Mike assumed that a good samaritan had simply found Archie and kindly dropped him off at the nearby station after discovering his address on his tag.

But after talking to railway workers, Mike was astounded when signalman, Derek Hope, told him he had witnessed Archie getting on and off the train all by himself.

"There was a bemused train conductor standing with Archie on the platform saying he had got on at Inverurie but didn't have a ticket," Hope said.

Closed-circuit television footage shows the dog waiting for his master at the station before watching the Aberdeen to Inverness train pull in. Apparently, Archie decided to avoid the long walk home by simply hopping on board.

"He is a very intelligent dog," Taitt said. "When he could not find me, he simply took the right train home. He's been on that train before. I am convinced he knew it was the right one. But who knows?"

When asked by our Gag Reporter whether Archie had ever shown signs of hyper-intelligence in the past, Mike shook his head for a moment but then replied: "Hang on a minute. He does play chess once in a while but I don't suppose that really proves he's intelligent".

"Why do you think that playing chess doesn't prove he's intelligent?", asked our puzzled reporter.

"Well for a start, he's only won five out of our last twelve games", Taitt replied.

pets can be amazing can't they?

In a related and true story, a cat from the US stowed away on a plane and ended up in France. The owners recieved a call, because the cat had it's collar and tag, telling them that their cat had traveled half way across the world. They family has/had (Not sure if they've done it yet or not) to gather up money to get their cat flown back. LoL.

yet another incredible doggie!

Forgetful dog survives jumping from window after owners move to high-rise

Have you ever had one of those days where you seem to be forgetting everything? You know what we mean. We've all experienced that uncomfortable feeling of waking up naked, in a strange bed, next to a strange woman and you're not sure whether or not you need to leave a $100 bill on the bedside table before you get up and leave. Well just spare a thought for poor TG, a young boxer dog who was used to jumping from the window of his owners' ground-floor flat in Cologne, but then forgot that they had all just moved to their new apartment six floors up.

For years, little TG had enjoyed regularly jumping out of his owners' ground floor window so he could scamper around in the garden of their old home. However, when the family moved recently, to their new high-rise apartment they simply assumed that TG would figure out that his window-jumping days were over.

Apparently, the week, the little fellow forgot that the family had moved and went on with his usual routine by leaping out of the open window only to find a six story drop waiting for him instead of the grassy lawn he was used to. Luckily, TG was saved however, when he landed on a neighbor's balcony three floors below.

When owners Udo and Angela Baecker, returned from shopping an hour later, they were puzzled to find that their pet had vanished. The mystery was quickly solved however, after they heard their beloved boxer whining from the balcony below and the local fire brigade were called to the rescue.

"We've only been in the new apartment for a week, but thought TJ would have got used to it after climbing up all the stairs. We never thought he'd try his usual trick of jumping from the window to get into the garden," said Angela.

The guys here at the Gag Report can certainly relate to poor TG's predicament. In fact, some of us were becoming so forgetful that our doctor recommended us to take Gingko Biloba pills three times a day to improve our memories.

We refused the doctor's advice however, on the grounds that if we could remember to take the damn pills three times a day - then we obviously didn't need them!

Lol. That's why you should stop most of your bad habits, including your pets' for your and their health.

here is yet another crazy animal story!

Hundreds of sheep follow leader off cliff in mass suicide

Sheep have never had the reputation of being the smartest animals in the barnyard, but this next bizarre story would make even the most militant vegetarians among us agree that these animals are so dumb - they deserve to be eaten. Apparently, this week, hundreds of sheep followed their leader off a cliff in eastern Turkey, plunging to their deaths while shepherds, (and local perverts), watched helplessly in dismay.

Within only a few minutes, 450 animals lay dead on top of one another in a billowy white pile. Locals reported that the death toll would have been much higher if not for the fact that another 1,100 animals were saved as their fall was cushioning by the growing mound of fluffy carcasses below.

The flock from Ikizler village, in the Van province near Iran, had been left unattended on Thursday morning while shepherds were eating breakfast. Local villagers told reporters that the sheep's leader, a 7-year-old ewe known as "Brains" must have wandered too close to the nearby sheer cliff and fallen over to land on the jagged rocks in the ravine more than fifty feet below.

Now at this point any self-respecting animal would have simply proposed choosing a new leader - but not these stupid bastards! Instead, they all decided to follow in the hoof-prints of their "respected elder" while doing their best lemming impersonations. Some of the younger surviving lambs were later overheard bleeting: "That was awesome! Can we go again?"

News of the deaths spread quickly through the village where most families rely in the animals for their survival. Neva Shaggit, a local herdsman told the Gag Report that the deaths would be particularly hard on the village's single men, including himself.

"Not only have we lost our main source of food and income, many of us have also lost our girlfriends!", he tearfully told our reporter.
