A touching story about a guide dog who saves her owner’s little boy

Hello ladies and gentlemen,

This story was not one that I wrote, but one that I got from a Christian email list that I am on.  Though I cannot take credit for writing this story, I will give all the glory of this blessing to our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, for he is the Author of salvation.

Love and prayers,


Mom’s Guide Dog Saves Her Baby From Being Hit by a Car
by Mary Fischer
Friday at 1:12 PM

Mom Jessica Crowley is thanking her lucky stars after her guide dog saved
her baby’s life by pushing his stroller out of the way of a car that was
heading straight for it.

Jessica is registered blind, and her black lab, Jet, has been by her side
for five years. While getting ready to cross the street pushing her son
Jacob’s stroller, she heard the screech of a car coming in their
direction. And just before it hit, Jet broke loose from Jessica’s grip and knocked
the stroller out of the way. It did fall over and the baby wound up with a
cut on his lip, but if it weren’t for Jet’s quick actions, something much
worse could have happened.

Jessica says that Jet loves little Jacob as if he were her own, which is
evident based on how she reacted when she realized he was in danger. Who
says a dog can’t have mama bear instincts — even if a human baby is the
one she’s trying to protect? It’s amazing how even though she’s trained to
assist Jessica, she immediately switched gears and came to Jacob’s rescue.

I’m sure this mom keeps replaying what happened over and over again in
her mind. I know I would if my son had almost been hit by a car. And I
don’t know how I’d ever be able to give that dog enough love and praise to
thank her for what she did, though something tells me dogs do what they feel
is right without expecting anything much in return.
What a blessing it is that Jessica had Jet with her that day. I’m sure
every time she hears her sweet baby boy’s voice, she’s once again reminded of
what a gem of a dog she has in her life!

Is your dog protective of your baby?
