Just about an hour-and-a-half before midnight on New Year’s Eve, a Michigan man identified only as Bob was at home watching TV and waiting for the countdown to 2017 to begin. He hopped outside to grab a log for the fireplace during a commercial break, but slipped on his way back inside—and broke his neck. Unable to move in the cold snow and with his nearest neighbor a quarter-mile away, he thought he was a goner.
Then, a miracle happened. His 5-year-old Golden Retriever, Kelsey, hearing his pleas for help, rushed to his aid. What followed was an act of friendship and bravery so intense, it’s almost hard to believe.
Talk about man’s best friend, right? Twenty hours is a long time to be stuck in the cold and the snow, even when you can move. Hopefully, Kelsey is getting lots of toys and bones for her good work.
