At 18 months, this pup's instinct was to save his boy from the mountain lion the boy didn't know was stalking him. Incredible.

DOG SAVES BOY FROM MOUNTAIN LION




Tuesday January 5,2010

A GOLDEN retriever called Angel saved the life of her 11-year-old master when he was attacked by a mountain lion near his home.


The 18-month-old dog flung herself into the path of a cougar poised to attack little Austin Forman.

Angel is a hero, and what does she get for her trouble? Nearly killed! What a good (and selfless) pup. Extra belly rubs when she recovers!

Someone else sent me this link and my heart just melt when I read it. The article I read had a photo of the dog and you can tell the dog may now be missing an eye.

This is one reason I will ALWAYS have a big dog. My Lucy may be a handful sometimes, but her protective nature is well worth it.

I love stories like this 8)

Interesting that HC's post points to a UK newspaper (daily express) . . . because when I went searching for a pic of the hero dog, I found this "tongue-in-cheek" story from something called the "daily mash" , also in the UK.

Crazy Brits. :eye:

I'm not surprised they drive on the wrong side of the road.

My brother has 40 acres and his kids where out in the field next to the woods. Thank God the dog was with them when a bear started coming out of the woods. The kids ran for the house while Lucy kept it a bay. She did get a small cut but was just fine.
My sister in law, who is not a dog person, now LOVES Lucy !! LOL

Gidget recently saved me from savage DC wildlife known as a Mall Squirrel. These savages have been emboldened for generations by treat-laden tourists who somehow fail to recognize the filthy rat beneath the fuzzy tail. You can see the creature below is thinking: "Where does that woman keep the treats?" Gidget's saying: "They're mine and you're mine, rat-boy, that fuzzy tail doesn't fool me."

I detect a British accent in this post . . . ;-)
