Firefighters from South Yorkshire have rescued two dogs who got stuck down a rabbit hole.
Crews from Parkway station were called out to Stone Lane in Sheffield by the dogs' owner who had been taking the terriers for a walk.
Firefighters were able to rescue one of the dogs straight away, but the other was further down the hole and they had to dig down to find it.
Both dogs were safe and well but went to the vets for a check-up as a precaution.
When it comes to famous dogs, forget Lassie, Snoopy, Goofy, or Mutley, because there's a new kid in town and his name is Tuna the Dog. Often referred to as the ugliest dog in the world, Tuna is an internet sensation. To put it in to perspective, rock legend Mick Jagger has more than 500,000 followers on Instagram, Ant and Dec have over 600,000 and the pop star OIlly Murs has 1.4million.
However, all of them are trumped by Tuna who has a whopping 1.7million followers. Tuna the dog is currently on tour around the UK and our reporter Adam Fowler went to meet him at Waterstones in Leeds.

A new puppy has joined North Yorkshire Police and begun the process which could see her one day qualify as a fully-fledged police dog. The four-month old Belgian Malinois joined the force a few weeks ago - and has been named 'Diesel' in honour of the police dog killed in Paris last month.
She has been assigned to a volunteer puppy walker who will care for her, and ensure she gains experience of a variety of situations, including socialising with people and other animals, busy traffic, crowds of people and loud noises.
Such exposure at an early stage is vital for her to progress through to her basic training, and ultimately become a Police Dog.
As she grows and throughout her training period, Diesel will be continually assessed for her temperament, personality and suitability as a police dog.
The name Diesel was chosen out of respect for the police dog that died in a raid on an apartment block in Saint Denis, Paris, in November. The death touched us all, and having the name live on is a wonderful way to respect Diesel's memory.
