The misadventure, of Alice in Wonderland proportions, happened whilst Cookie was on a walk with her owner Kay Barnes near Shrewsbury.
Cookie spotted a rabbit and chased it down a hole. For two hours Kay tried to find the mischievous pooch, but to no avail.
Not sure of what to try next Kay decided to call for expert help from a service associated with rescuing cats from trees.
The fire service arrived and after three hours, using specialist earthquake rescue equipment, they managed to locate cookie and pull her free.
It is not clear whether the rabbit was white and whether Cookie met some fantastical characters on her journey.

A recent study of dog infestations in the South East England and West Wales has found that a new tick is spreading across the dog population. Scientists are worried that the tick in question is, the Dermacentor reticulates tick, could increase the spread of disease in dogs.
The study, published in the journal Medical and Veterinary Entomology, found that 14.9 per cent of dogs were infested with the ticks, a much higher level than expected.
The ticks are more prevalent in Europe and scientists believe that climate change has caused them to migrate further north.
Scientists are worried because Dog ticks can carry different diseases and they think that a new tick in the population could see diseases spreading at a higher rate.
Long hair dogs are more likely to pick up ticks and breeds that are the most susceptible include retrievers, setters, spaniels and terriers.

Wall-e was one of a litter of pups found abandoned outside an animal shelter. A vet surgeon decided that the pups were too ill to survive and had them put down. Miraculously Wall-e the three month old pup survived.
Although he was declared dead by the vet, the following morning an Animal Control Officer heard whimpering from where his body had been placed, when he went to go check it out Wall-e was wandering around. He was as healthy as he could be and now has a new leash on life.
The pup was named Wall-e after the earth’s only survivor, a waste collecting robot, in the 2008 animated film of the same name.

Andrew Lloyd Webber’s version of the Wizard of Oz is a hit not only because of Michael Crawford or BBC talent show winner Danielle Hope, but Toto, the West Highland terrier. There have been four West Highland terriers cast for the role of Toto and they all do a fantastic job. They bark right on cue, on stage for most of the show and carry out their entrances and exits promptly. However, stuffed toys are also used in the show to replicate Toto and they are not as adorable as the real Westies.
