You've all heard the stories about firefighters coming to the rescue of cats stuck in trees, but what about dogs?

This happened recently in the town of Fountain, Colorado.

Kayla Champion had to call upon the help of the Fountain Fire Department to rescue her dog, Lily, who got a little too carried away chasing a squirrel and ended up far out on a branch in their back yard.

When the Fountain Fire Department arrived, they thought it might have been a prank call, but it wasn't, as you can see.

Here is the moment that Lily was safely back on the ground without injury:

We all hope that Lily has learned her lesson on chasing squirrels up trees. You can see all of the photos from the ordeal here:
