Loyal creatures, proud owners
Dogs are amazing creatures. One of the best things about them is their loyalty. If you have a dog yourself, you’ll probably be able to relate to at least one of these stories about how loyal dogs are to their owners.
Protecting their young
When we brought our daughter, Elyse, home from the hospital, our dog, Becca, seemed to roll her eyes as if to say, “Really? Another kid?” But we knew she really loved our kids. At the age of two, Elyse decided to take a stroll down our dead-end street while her father was washing the car. Becca kept her safe the whole time by calmly circling around her again and again to keep her off of the street and on the grass. Luckily, our neighbour quickly noticed that Elyse had gotten away, but Becca sprung right into action when she knew her little sister could possibly be in danger. —Donna Brazen
The way home
Our black lab, Chloe, was a little over a year when she disappeared in January. It was one of the coldest weeks of the year, the temperatures at night dropped well below zero. We thought we had lost our pup for good, but after a week she magically showed up on our doorstep. She was pretty banged up and we had to nurse her back to health but we were so grateful we had her home again. We’ll never know what happened to her during that week, but she knew how to find her way home to her family. —Shelly Peavy
