Bob’s nearest neighbor was a quarter mile away and couldn’t hear him. Luckily for him, his yelps for help reached his loyal Golden Retriever, Kelsey. Aided by her sharp hearing, Kelsey tracked Bob down on her own. The brave dog immediately gauged the situation and started barking for help.

As the night grew colder, Bob’s wounded body began giving way. Kelsey sensed this and started making an effort towards keeping Bob warm. She rubbed his hands and feet and lay over him for over 20 hours. Her screeching howls eventually alerted the neighbor about Bob’s accident and help finally arrived.
