BRECKENRIDGE, Colo. — A dog was found alive and in relatively good shape after spending eight days trapped in the rubble of a building that exploded, critically injuring the pup’s owner.
Lulu, a Springer spaniel, was rescued Sunday after the owner of the business that had been housed in the two-story building heard her whimpering.
“We turned off the radio and started calling out Lulu’s name. Then we heard some yelping,” Brian Hold, owner of Good Times Adventures, told the Summit Daily News in Tuesday’s editions.
Lulu’s owner, Brian Mislanski, had been critically injured in the April 19 explosion and remained at St. Anthony Central Hospital in Denver on Tuesday.
“I’m happy,” Mislanski said Tuesday. He declined to comment further, but friends who are caring for Lulu said they took her to visit him — with permission from the hospital.
