Dog Saves Boy From Drowning

Video at link.

The (bad) mother lost track of her son, and went searching for him. She found him in the pool (not fenced off properly, hence bad mother) being held out of the water by the family dog, Bear, a black lab. The dog would not move a muscle, and had the boy balanced on his back. The little boys lips were blue, his eyes rolled back, and apparently the mother was unable to contact 911 so she drove to the nearest fire station. Now we can armchair what we would have done differently as a dog. Drug the boy out of the pool, barked for help, learned how to telepathically communicate with the mother... If the story is legit (and I concede it's rather hard to believe a mother with an open pool that loses track of her child) that boy deserves some treats and a tummy rub. It's pretty cute to watch him interact with the kid. Barks a lot, kid doesn't flinch, nudges the ball back to play.

Animals, and especially dogs are truly amazing. Dogs are much more aware than most people care to give them credit for, and truly love the pack. I've seen some pretty mean and very large dogs act like kittens around their kids, and some little sissy dogs go berserk if they feel a loved one is threatened.

If I ever have a child I think I am going to be sure to have the following breeds to assist me. Border collies to heard the mini Domo, Pit Bulls for play and for snuggles (there is a reason they were called the 'nanny dog'), a few Dobermans for play time and protection, a lab or two for water rescue and wiggles, and a German Shepard to watch over the pack. Oh, and mutts because I love them. Dog ranch!

Animals in general have been underrated for lack of superior term, from personalities, to brain levels Etc,
