COLFAX - An elderly woman stopped to walk along the Colfax Trail but her old dog found the heat too much.

She called 9-1-1 on July 24 for help. A Whitman County Sheriff's Office deputy arrived and found the large older dog passed out on the railroad tracks because of the heat, according to Whitman County Sheriff Brett Myers.

The woman talked about needing a wheelbarrow to move her pet.

The deputy was able to connect her with a farmer to retrieve the tired pet.
