||One year old|
lives in a home with five other boxers, being the youngest female
here so is considered a puppy. Dreamer took it in her own hands to show us
how "big" she is. One night while waiting for my youngest son, Casey, to
come in, I laid down to read a book. Dreamer, Sweetpea and Sam were loose
in the house. I heard a truck drive up
and assumed it was Casey, after a few minutes when he didn't come in I
decided it was a neighbor. All of a sudden Dreamer took off outside (the
dog door), only to return with her hair standing up and barking. Dreamer
has never been a barker, and I had never heard that kind of bark out of her
before. She was dancing around my bed carrying on, then ran to the door of
Bobby's (another son) room and barked. Bobby took off out the door with her
to see what was wrong, with me following close behind. (all this time
Sweetpea or Sam never moved off my bed)
Casey has been sick, the week before with the flu, on top of that he has
asthma which had been bothering him some, and also had a kidney stone we
knew nothing about at the time. This is the way Casey tells us what
happened, while walking to the gate of our fence, he tripped over a limb
and couldn't get back up. When he yelled for help, no one heard him, so he
panicked a little and was having trouble breathing. Dreamer came running up
to the fence, he told her to go get help, she took off for the house and
you know the rest.
If anyone had told me one of my dogs did something like this I would have
never believed it was Dreamer girl. She is our hero!
BTW-Casey was fine, just a little sore.
