I just found two great stories that once again reaffirm our connection with our animals.
The winner of the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Los Angeles’ 30th National Hero Dog Award has been announced and it’s Bear, a 100-pound Shiloh German shepherd rescued from a Texas animal shelter three years ago.
Bear’s guardian had a seizure last May and lost consciousness when she fell hit her head. The Associated Press reports Bear raced from house to house, scratching on doors for help. A county animal control officer saw him and followed him to home.
The dog then jumped into the ambulance to accompany his guardian to the hospital.
And a woman in Massachusetts saved her 9-year-old golden retriever from a bear attack, using a toy sword. She waved the toy at the bear and banged it on a stone wall and screamed until bear had enough, stopped its attack on her dog left the yard.
That’s some kind of brave stuff there.
