If you have a dog at home, you probably noticed that it has a special attitude to the youngest members of the family. As a rule, children love dogs, and the dogs reciprocate. This story happened in 1993. Mindy, a resident of Ohio, USA, along with her husband was pleased with the birth of their youngest daughter Rachel. Mom, dad and a terrible sister Amanda all rejoiced in the advent of a baby in the house. And only their two — year-old collie named Papillon behaved strangely-he often barked when he was near the newborn. Papillon was not the most well — mannered dog-ran at will, chewed shoes, often indulged.
So the family paid no attention to his barking — he just kept away from the nursery. Mindy was home alone with the baby once. She put her daughter to bed and decided to take a shower. Suddenly she heard a dog barking in the next room. Mindy was worried that Papillon would Wake the baby and hurried out. But when she began to dry off, the dog already ran to the bathroom and was barking like crazy.
Mindy always loved the collie — she enjoyed watching the TV series “lassie”, where an intelligent dog always helped people out of trouble. So she drove the dog and grabbed a towel and followed him — Papillon led her to the nursery.
The dog was jumping near the crib, and the mother saw with horror that the little daughter has blue lips. Rachel didn’t breathe. Mindy dialed the emergency services. While doctors drove, mom did her daughter CPR until she finally cried.
