Minot dog takes to the roof

MINOT (AP) -- Minot police say they get lots of calls about animals but this one was different.

A caller reported a dog was on top of the roof of a house.

Animal control officer Dick Schnell says the snow in the back yard of the dog's owner's home apparently was high enough for the dog to walk up onto the roof Tuesday. He says the dog seemed perfectly content.

Schnell tossed some treats and tempted the dog to the roof's lower level, but no farther. The dog's owner was called, and eventually returned home to persuade the dog to come down.

It left Schnell chuckling and saying, "just when you think you've seen it all."
