NC Family Saved from House Fire by Dog

shutterstock_173680289From North Carolina: I bet this family is glad they decided to adopt a dog! When Tatia Johnson fell asleep in her recliner, she never dreamed it would save her life. Usually she sleeps in her bedroom with the door closed, but on a recent Friday night, she was just too tired to get out of her easy chair. Aside from a possible crick in her neck, this turned out to be a good thing.

18-Week Old Puppy Saves Young Boy from Swarm of Bees

This is one family who is extra glad they brought a dog into their family. A few weeks after bringing Pinky home, Richie, a 9-year old who is allergic to bees, was outside playing with the dog when he was stung by a couple of bees. Problem is, the bees were part of a large swarm and could have caused a major problem for Richie.

A Hero Chihuahua Mix Named Psycho

If your two grand-daughters are outside making mud pies, it’s good to have a dog like Psycho on hand to protect them from snakes. This little Chihuahua mix smelled danger when a rattler threatened, so he put himself between the girls and the snake. For his trouble, he was bitten on the eyelid. Vets are hopeful the eye can be saved.

Until next time,
Good day, and good dog!

Ollie, the Wonder Dog

I’m guessing this Canton, Georgia family will never complain about bad behavior from this puppy!

Ollie, a 6-month old boxer, was acting strange one evening – whining, rubbing against the legs of family members, and going outside then refusing to come back in.  Eventually, all of the family members ended up out in the yard, and they could tell Ollie was finally relaxing.

That’s when it dawned on Dad that he had left the gas on in the fireplace.  By now, the fire had gone out, but the valve continued to pour gas into the house.  Mom says the family does often light candles, which would have had catastrophic results if Ollie hadn’t intervened.

I’m thinking Ollie might find something a little special in his stocking this Christmas.

Until next time,

Good day, and good dog!
