Meet Kelsey, a golden retriever who is demonstrating why dogs really are our greatest companions.
Bob, from Michigan, his human, tripped on ice one day and shattered his neck right outside his home.
“I screamed for aid, but my closest neighbor is a quarter-mile away, and it was 10:30 p.m.”
“But then my Kelsey arrived and rescued me,” he said, grateful for his furry guardian angel. My voice was gone by daylight, and I couldn’t shout for aid, but Kelsey didn’t stop barking.”
He was just wearing his long johns, slippers, and a shirt on the extremely cold winter night since he was only going out of his home to fetch a log for his fireplace.
Instead, this escalated into a 20-hour struggle in which Bob lay immobilized in the snow. He would have d.i.e.d of a cold if it hadn’t been for his furry pal.
“She continued barking for aid but never left my side,” Bob added. She kept me awake and comfortable. I knew I had to go through this and that staying alive was my decision. ”
Sadly, Bob passed out at the 19th hour, but Kelsey was not about to give up.
He discovered me at 6:30 p.m. “She let out a screaming cry that woke up my neighbor.”
Finally, when his neighbor discovered him, he was sent to the local hospital for emergency surgery.
He is now completely healed and credits Kelsey with saving his life.
