My lab/shep mix saved me from a nasty fall last year. He thru-hiked the Appalachian Trail with me... and at one point on a scramble I stepped on a huge flat rock, while it looked stable, it was actually like a big see-saw. I lost my balance and started to go down, my boy jumped on to the other side of the rock, acting as a counter balance.
This was one of those things that took place during a half second period, but I remember the whole thing in slow motion. There is no doubt I'd have broken part of my leg if I had fallen. I love my dog.
