Heart Warmer

It’s been a while since I last posted a Heart Warmer, but trust me this one will make up for all the lost ones!

As Tim Curfman was taking his trash out on one of the most icy and slippery and snowy days in American history, his dog Midnight accompanied him. All of a sudden, Midnight started sniffing, perking up her ears, barking and eventually ran off. The dog behaved in a manner that was not like her normal self at all, according to Tim.

He followed his black Labrador and found her with his neighbour Noreen, an 87-year-old woman who had fallen into the snow, unable to get back up. Eventually, she’d spent over half an hour in the snow and if it hadn’t been for Midnight, she’d probably have died there!

Midnight called her owner to action and he went and got help from some other neighbours. Together, they managed to get Noreen out of her feeble position and back into the warmth and safety of her own home.

Us people have the tendency to feel superior to all other living things. But fact is that none of us could have smelled Noreen’s problems like Midnight did. If it wasn’t for this beautiful and alert dog, Noreen would not have made it out alive.

Plus, just look at that face! That in itself is pretty heart-warming, isn’t it? ❀

  1. What a beautiful story Samantha – it did warm my heart. I’m glad that woman is ok, it would have been a very sad story had the black lab not saved the day. I love those dogs! Thank you for sharing this heartwarming story!

  2. Aww, what a lovely story! You do read about the amazing things our fellow dogs do in the news, from getting owners help after they’ve had an accident to sniffing out cancer. Midnight finding this poor woman in the snow was certainly a blessing, what an awesome dog! πŸ™‚

    1. I agree! I’ve heard more wonderous stories about dogs and other pets. This one just felt really special, because Midnight saved someone who wasn’t her owner πŸ™‚
