There's a recorded story of a man, Phineas Gage, who survived having an iron bar go all the way through his head. The "only" long-lasting effect was that his personality changed, due to the centers of the brain that were destroyed. I've never heard of it happening with a dog before, though.

It's a wiki reference, but it's a commonly studied case in psychology classes. :)

Wow! It's just so hard to believe. We're so careful and sometimes small things can have huge consequences. Then you hear about this and he is recovering just fine!
