Toddler Naps with 2-month-old Puppy

When blogger Jessica Shyba and her family adopted an adorable 7-week-old mutt named Theo, they didn’t expect an unlikely friendship to blossom. After 3 days in the family, Theo snuggled up Jessica’s toddler son Beau for nap time–and what happened after that was pure Instagram history. “And so began the most organic and beautiful friendship I have ever witnessed,” Shyba says.

Hero Guide Dog Saves Baby

Jet

There’s no doubt that dogs can be our best friends, but what about our best bodyguards?

Jet, a black Labrador guide dog in the UK, showed extreme bravery this month when saving her owner’s 1-year-old son from an out-of-control vehicle!

Jessica Cowley, Jet’s owner, is legally blind. Earlier this month on a routine shopping trip, Jessica was pushing her son Jacob in his stroller when a car sped towards them.

“Just after we stepped off the curb I heard a screeching of a car and it banged into me sending me flying. Just before it hit me, Jet pulled her harness out of my hand and actually pushed the [stroller] out of the way. Jet is trained to help me but she’s not trained to do that sort of thing. It doesn’t bear thinking about what might have happened if she hadn’t have done what she did.”

We love to hear stories of courageous canines! Share your own Hero Dog experience with ALetterToMyDog.com in the comments below!

Scooter-Riding Dog Breaks World Record

So what did YOU do Friday?

Norman the Scooter-Riding Dog broke a Guinness World Record– for fastest pooch on a scooter. He rode 100 feet in just under 20 seconds. He didn’t even the whole 30 seconds he needed to complete his mission in!

Congrats to Norman (who’s a French sheep dog, if you’re curious)– and to his charity of choice, Road Trip Home, an organization that saves homeless animals from high-kill shelters.
