Subject: here's a dog with an unbeatible will to live

From the May 24, 2001 edition of the Globe and Mail newspaper:

Dog hit by mail truck claws way out of grave.

Park Hills, Mo. A small black dog that was hit by a mail-delivery
truck and presumed dead defied death twice - first by surviving
the accident and then by digging itself out of a grave.
    Sprawled near a mailbox Monday, Sweetie seemed lifeless to
owner Glenda Stevens. Futilely seeking a heartbeat, she assumed
Sweetie was dead and dug a grave in which to bury her beloved
pet. Hours later, she saw Sweetie's hind legs sticking out of the
ground. The dog was digging itself out.
    Sweetie suffered a broken front leg and a broken jaw. AP
