An amazing video shows a dog saving his owner, who appeared to be drowning — in very shallow water. He wasn’t drowning. He had merely dunked his head under the water. Maybe he was playing a sort of peek-a-boo game with his dog. In any case, the dog — and what a dog — sensed something tragic was befalling his owner, and being a hero dog, he sprung into action. He didn’t wake up this morning knowing he was going to have to be a hero, but today he was going to be a hero nonetheless.
He jumped in.
Once he landed on his owner and assessed the situation, the dog determined his owner appeared to have an injured head, quite possibly because the dog had landed on on it. Beside the point, thought the dog. No use in second-guessing the rescue operation.
So the dog grabbed his man’s hand, using his best soft bite, and gently guided him to shore. He could have been escorting a Collie down a debutante staircase, so soft and gentle was this bite.
The dog did not rest until the man was safely to the edge of this horrid little pond, and made sure he had a firm grip on the creepy, muddy shoreline and did not slip again into the dank, possibly contaminated water.
Can we please get out of this weird place? the dog appeared to be saying.
It’s really cute, actually. Watch:
