Our dogs except for being loyal to us,give us all the love they have,a lot of time we hear stories that they have even became heroes, and saved their owners lives too.
On a cold freezing new years eve,Bob went out of the house to fetch firewood,and then slipped on the ice,landed on his back and was unable to move after the fall.
Bob’s wife wasn’t at home,his nearest neighbor was a quarter of a mile away from him,so he knew he wouldn’t be able to get help.
But soon his loyal Golden Retriever dog Kelsey ran to him,and helped the owner,keeping him warm and licking him for 20 long hours.
When Bob went out to fetch the firewood at 10.30 pm,he was wearing lightly,with only slippers,long johns,and a long sleeved shirt.
His 40-acre plot farmhouse in MIchigan,was covered in snow and ice when he stepped outside and fell down, after the fall on his back he knew for sure that he had broken something,because he was only able to move his elbows.
And soon after,Kelsey ran to his side,rescuing her owner by laying on him and licking to keep Bob warm out in the cold.
According to Today. ,doctors believe that Kelsey helped her owner to not get frostbite on that cold freezing weather.
“He has marks on his arms from her pawing at him when he was losing consciousness,” Bob’s daughter Jenny said. “It was like, she knew that he had to stay awake because if he fell asleep he wouldn’t wake up again.”
Bob tells he was awake and conscious till an hour before a neighbor came to collect chicken eggs,around 6:30 pm the next day,reports Today.
Bob was rushed to hospital where he got help for irregular heart rhythm and hypothermia,and also went under surgery to repair two herniated discs that had compressed his spinal cord and stopped him from moving,when he fell down.
He is now receiving therapy to help him walk again and built his strength.
Kelsey,you are a hero,and Bob is lucky to have you as a pet.
