Remember how I told you that dolphins are the second smartest animals in the whole world, after chimpanzees? Well, a couple of weeks ago, two dolphins proved exactly how smart they are by saving the life of a doberman pinscher.
So the D'Alessandros went over to see what was going on, and guess what! There was a doberman in the canal, and he was standing on a sandbar, but the water was still halfway up over him, even though it was low tide. He couldn't get out of the canal because of the high walls, and he was too weak to even bark. But the D'Alessandros saw him because of the dolphins. And Mrs. D'Alessandro climbed down into the canal onto the sandbar while her husband called the police. And the dolphins swam away because their job was done.
It turned out that the D'Alessandros have a yellow lab, so they were glad they could save Turbo. But Mrs. D'Alessandro says that mostly it was the dolphins who saved Turbo.
So that's the end of this happy story, and the moral is that you should try never to fall into a canal, but if you do, make sure there are some dolphins around to help rescue you.
