LAKE OSWEGO, Ore., May 22 (UPI) -- A Lake Oswego, Ore., police officer said he was led to a fallen woman by a dachshund that refused to leave him alone or stop barking.

Sgt. John Brent said he was responding to reports of a barking dog waking up neighbors at about 1 a.m. Tuesday in the city's Lake Grove neighborhood when Pam Fischer's dog, Annie, blocked his patrol car, The (Portland) Oregonian reported Thursday.

Brent said the nine-pound dog refused to allow herself to be caught and again blocked his patrol car when he attempted to leave in another direction. He said that's when he heard Fischer, 60, calling for help from behind a bush.

Fischer told the officer she had tripped while walking Annie and hit her head on a street sign when she attempted to grab it.

"I guess the moral of the story is, don't climb up curbs where there are no street lights. Don't grab onto a wiggly pole. And always have your dog with you," Fischer said.
