Dog saved a kid?

Recommended Posts

A young child was walking down the middle of the street this morning. A car came down the road (way too fast) - my dog, which never goes on the street- ran up to the child and "pushed" the child to the side of the road.

Kinsey then barked at me to notice the child and we walked him home. Do you think she knew what she was doing? She had that "I am proud" trot on the way back to the house (if your a dog owner you know what I mean).

Yes I do. When my daughter was 5 (she is now 32) I was on the river below our house fishing salmon. I was about a 100' down stream from her when she slipped and fell into the river and immediately disappeared underwater. I dropped everything and ran in that direction to dive in and save her I hoped. By the time I was half way there my 8 year old black lab was pushing her into to the shore bank which I quickly reached down and jerked her out and rushed her home, scared and wet but fine. Never was a doubt in my mind that Sheba saved her life.

They understand/recognize more than we think they do. Its limited, but its obviously more than what they can communicate to us.

I haven't had any life saving experiences like that with my dogs. However my Lab, who is the sweetest dog in the world and who wouldn't hurt a fly, once and only once got really aggressive when a hooded man came across the road directly towards my wife while she was walking him. Needless to say, the man decided to turn around and go back the other direction. That's the only time we have ever heard him growl like he meant business. And he often goes right up to strangers with the tail wagging. He either sensed something about the guy or that my he made my wife nervous, not sure which.

Cool story Duck Dog.

My dad had a tale; pheasant hunting alone in Iowa, he was crossing a pasture when a bull charged him. His AWS distracted the bull, while he got through the fence. He then just lifted the bottom wire and called her in. He swore she knew exactly what she was doing.

Give your dog a pat for me.

I have a nephew with mental and physical disabilities. When he was small, he figured out how to open the front door. My sister's border collie jumped their fence, ran out into the street where my nephew was, grabbed his shirt, and brought him back to the door.

That was the one and only time that dog jumped the fence.

      Great video Curt, for as much of it that I could see. Keep up the good work, and one question, Are there any live emerald shiners around the Baudette area to be had, or just frozen ones?
    • eyeguy 54
      Its a little stiffer than my titanium spring boober and much more sensitive.  I like it  better than the 27 inch ul ticklestick. Only used 3 and 4 mm jigs so far. Thumbs up from me.

      2/18/18     Got out on an area lake an hour before sunrise Saturday. Got a bunch of crappies until they slowed about 9 am. Most between 9.5 and 11 inches. Sunfish started biting about sunrise and bit all morning. Half of them were 8 to 8.5 inches. Most of the rest were 7 to 7.5 inches. Kept two meals of fish--released the rest. 1/32 ounce VMC Tungsten Tubbies tipped with a single wax worm or two red Eurolarvae fished just above some weeds in thirteen feet of water caught fish after fish. Lots of good ice on area lakes. Even though walleyes and pike close in just over a week and wheel houses can't stay out unattended soon, still a lot of good ice fishing for panfish to come. Will have plenty of ice for a while, so get out and enjoy the peace and quiet and fast crappie and sunfish action that March will bring. Good luck, and I will see you out there somewhere.

      Had a chance to rub shoulders and fish with some of the ice team guys today. Great bunch of guys we had some good laughs and of course discussed plenty about fishing. Even shared a few hotspots. The hands on they give the people that sign up for this event is absolutely amazeing! From hands on to tips on everything to do to make your day on the ice way more productive. From what I witnessed it would be well worth the investment to sign up for one of there events , if you are new to fishing or heck even a seasoned angler.  Fished with one guy from Nebraska said he has done 5 of these events and has enjoyed everyone of them.  Fun day for sure

      Royce, how’s the sensitivity Is the tip soft like a tickle stick and how’s quality seem? About same price as a tickle stick I see may have to try one for next season. If It passes with flying colors do you it must be good! Tough day for me not much happening went from about 8-29 FOW and just nothing. Found perch in about 19 but even they seemed finicky and would only hit the dead stick. A bit windy on the lake today to!
    • The Chemist
      Yes that would be the one. A friend of mine sent it to me. The guy who got it is a friend of his nephew. 
    • The Chemist
      So that explains the traffic and also the one where they were shooting video of what appeared to be about a drill type auger. Did drive by an ice team truck on the way out also.

      The warmer weather has brought alot of people out to the area. We are waiting for the later bite. Most are setup in shallowet water. Haven't marked fish yet but tendto see them at sunset.    Be careful with all the holes being drilled! I found one that was covered back in, got my shin, luckily not my ankle.

      Started out in 26 feet this morning and had 5 dandy crappies in 15 minutes then it was over. moved a mile and found a few dandy gills in 16 feet. And a couple bass.  Day 2 with the new rods and liking them more.
