Last month, a dog chased a squirrel onto the frozen Charles River in Massachusetts and fell through the ice.
The dog's frantic owner called 911 for help, and Wellesley Firefighters rescued Crosby, a 5-year old golden retriever.
Ellen, after interviewing the heroes, presented each of the firefighters with a custom-made life preservers and an all-expenses-paid cruise to the Caribbean.
Unfortunately, the firefighters are prohibited from accepted the cruise, due to Massachusetts law.
