Dog saved a kid?

Recommended Posts

DuckDog

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.

      Toddrun, You are correct. It seems as if it’s still larvea down there in big bay. Have seen very few , if any mayflies in the air.

      Nice fish Reid, We saw lots of clouds coming out of the mud also, but didn't know what was hatching.  Did see lots of dragonfly's, but not much for fishflies or mayflies in the air.  We didn't have any big fish luck for found keeper fish in the first rock edges around the mud. A guy in our resort claimed he caught a 32" Walleye, but we didn't see any pic's, so not verified, although had several witnesses that confirmed it.  Would have been nice to see it though.

      Bass is my favorite fish to eat.    I always keep them.   If anyone told me not to I would tell them to go to [email protected]#$.    I always eat everything I catch. Catch and release is a choice not a law.   As long as people eat what they catch I have no problem with what ever they catch.   Those who waste fish I have a problem with or those who catch and release too much and end up killing fish I even have a bigger problem with.   Don

      The OP specifically requested advice on how to best address what he personally considers an issue; respectfully. And yes, I do agree, and therefore respect his request enough to answer it; respectfully. I’ve personally dealt with the same conflict of interest in the past and feel that I understand the emotions on both sides enough to offer qualified advice that is more practical and useful than just saying mind your own darn business.

      Hit BSL on Friday to tryand find those slabs again... They were right in the same area as the last time I was out, but could not get one to bite to save my life... They were taunting me jumping all around me... I got some walleyes, nothing over 14" though... The bugs were horrible on the north side, so bad they drove me to the south side haha.

      If someone is legal keeping 15"+ bass, it's none of your business whether they keep 15"+ fish or not. Just walk away and leave it alone.  If you want to change the regulations, try doing it in the proper manner instead of a confrontation at the boat ramp.  I don't know how others would react, but if you approached me, it certainly wouldn't be positive experience.

      so what do have against harpooners?????  the Indians did it before us????????????   
    • Reid Saarela
      28.5, but the fattest walleye we’ve seen. My dad and I both agreed it was a bigger fish than my 30 last summer. Wish we would have weighed it but I would rather have the fish swim off healthy!

      I don't confront people on the water about what they do.  Expressing an opinion in general is fine.  Getting up in people's face is different, as I hope you agree.

      That's awesome Don. Very creative and looks like fun.
