THINK YOU SHOULDN'T HAVE A DOG FOR YOUR KID? THINK AGAIN.

You may not be interested in watching some of these loyal dogs saving their people, but be sure to watch the BEETHOVEN  like savior dogs when their children fall in the family pool. The children were sure to drown without their furry friends.
I volunteered to work with a little girl who fell in a pool when she was two. She was at a neighbor's house when the neighbor answered the phone. In that moment, the little girl figured out how to open the sliding door lock, push open the door, raced to the pool and fell in. I'm not sure how long it took to find her, but the policeman who pulled her out and gave her CPR also volunteered. By the time I worked with the child, she had to eat though an implanted tube in her stomach. Her head seemed frozen to one side. She looked very much like a child with severe cerebral palsy. Her parents were trying everything to bring her back. Who wouldn't? The method that required may volunteers was a program that makes the injured child go through all the stages of development until their brain was injured, including simulating the uterus by swinging the child in a sack. I was part of the team that simulated her crawling. One person moved the legs. Two people moved each arm. And I forced her head to turn, in spite of her rigid neck. She moaned in pain, the entire time. I got fired, because I kept crying.
