Dog saves baby from drowning

Rate this post

After my last post, we all need a palate cleanser.

We need a story about a creature without sin!

A dog in Turkey became the hero of the day when it saved a baby from going into the water on a beach in Kabak Bay on the southwest coast of Turkey.

The dog was playing fetch when it spotted a baby crawling toward the water.

The baby was seconds from the water when hero dog used his body to block the baby’s path.

  7. Thank you Dr. Eowyn for this wonderful post! If anybody tells me that animals cannot reason, I will punch them out with my cane! This is a perfect example of excellent reasoning on the part of a heroic dog, a creature without sin, versus the lack of reasoning and/or carelessness of the child’s mother.

     
    • Joan,

      Yesterday when I emailed this post to a list of e-correspondents, I got an immediate reply from “Gary” who rarely, if ever, responds to posts I’d sent him in the past. Gary insisted that we don’t know what was in the mind of the dog, and that dog wasn’t “saving” the baby but was merely being playful. I responded that since we don’t know what was in the dog’s mind, then I choose to believe that the dog was trying to save the baby by putting himself between the baby and the water, and that countless dogs have saved the lives of countless humans. Gary wrote back, still adamant that the dog didn’t “save” the baby.

      What lengths some people go to disbelieve and discredit dogs! [shaking my head ….]
