Our pets become beloved members of the family. Some people even set up pet trusts to provide for their animals in the event that they become unable or the pet survives them. Dogs, in particular, have a reputation for being a man's best friend and, in this case, for good reason.
Ten year old, Chance, a bulldog-pit mix who suffers from hip dysplasia, jumped a fence to save his owner's life. Vietnam Veteran, Billy Collins, took a nasty spill one day while home alone and was unable to get up. Chance managed to open his screen door, jump the fence and seek out a neighbor to help.
Now that's love.
