Meet Kelsey, a golden retriever who is proving exactly why dogs are truly our best friends.
His human, Bob from Michigan, slipped on ice one day and broke his neck just outside his house.
“I was screaming for help but my nearest neighbor is about a quarter-mile away and it was 10:30 p.m.”
It seemed that Bob was in quite the pickle, but luckily for him, he had his furry guardian angel by his side, “but then my Kelsey came and saved me. By morning my voice was gone and I couldn’t yell for help, but Kelsey didn’t stop barking.”
On the freezing cold winter night, Bob was only in his long johns, slippers and a shirt as he only planned on stepping out of his house to get a log for his fireplace.
Instead, this turned out to be a 20-hour ordeal, where Bob lay paralyzed in the snow. If it wasn’t for his furry friend, he would of most likely frozen to death.
Bob explained: “She kept barking for help but never left my side. She kept me warm and alert. I knew I had to persevere through this and that it was my choice to stay alive.”
In the 19th hour, Bob, unfortunately, lost consciousness, but Kelsey didn’t give up just yet!
“She was letting out this screeching howl that alerted my neighbor. He found me at 6:30 p.m..”
Finally, after his neighbor found him, he was taken straifght to the local hospital to undergo emergency surgery.
He is now fully recovered and hails Kelsey as his hero for saving his life.
