Aww, I love stories like this! Not glad that anyone was hurt, but how wonderful our animal friends are.
According to Yahoo News, in BREWSTER, N.Y. – A service dog threw himself in front of a mini school bus to try to protect his blind owner and stayed by her side as emergency responders tended to the injured pair, authorities said.
“The dog took a lot of the blow,” Brewster Police Chief John Del Gardo said. “And he did not want to leave her side. He stood right with her. He was there to save her.”
The driver said he didn’t see the pair crossing the road. He was given a summons for failing to yield to a pedestrian. The two kindergarteners on the bus weren’t injured.
Paul Schwartz, who manages a gas station at the intersection, ran over to help.
