A dog had to be rescued from a steep cliff in Australia after becoming stranded halfway down.

The video footage taken by the Australian rescue teams who saved the pet, named Jimmy, shows him stuck on a ledge above the sea at Bells Beach in Victoria on Sunday. And, it had the internet holding its breath.

Victoria Country Fire Authority (VCFA) secured a harness to the top of the cliff and then used ropes to reach the stranded animal.

“I think the dog was pretty happy to be brought over the edge by our crews," VCFA commander Mark Sinkinson said. “It was quite happy, wagging its tail, and very keen to get in the litter and be brought out."

And, the internet was so happy.

And, everyone is so grateful for the humans who helped this pup back to safety.

We are all relieved!

And, although we still don't know how the pup got there, Jimmy was then reunited with his owner, who was delighted to have him back.

Historians have a frustrating job, presumably because there are so many people out there who seem pretty intent on repeating our history... which sort of goes against the very point in the first place.

If the walls are thin... all information is fair game. The secrets that are exposed, the lies uncovered, the heartache, the joy..... heck, things we can listen from our neighbor's lives can be better than any telenovela. So many buildings are built so paper thin (thank you slumlords of NYC) that listening is unavoidable. And Lord do the neighbors have issues.

Food, like art, is objective. What we all feel in our mouths is a private thought. Our bodies are chemically defined in so many ways. How we indulge in taste is our our journey. However... somethings don't belong together. Like, it's total revolt against humanity. And pizza is the basic food life force. Don't get crazy with pizza... pizza is beautiful already.

Weddings are an emotional day for everyone involved. With so many different emotions in the air, ranging from happiness to queasiness to, you can bet something is sure to go wrong. By "wrong," of course, we talk about the moment when a priest or pastor asks if anyone has any objections to the union of the two people and someone feels inclined to say, "I object!"
