9 Golden Retriever saves boy from cougar

This dog has the right name for his brave act. In British Columbia, Canada, an 11-year-old boy was out in the woods collecting firewood for the family's furnace. He always walked with his loyal and trusted Golden Retriever, Angel, but on this night, he noticed that Angel was acting differently, not the usual happy-go-lucky. Before he knew what happened, a cougar pounced from approximately 10 feet away, but Angel jumped in front of her owner and took the brunt of the attack. Luckily, the police constable was nearby and shot the cougar before any fatal damages were done to Angel, who did later have to have surgery on her head from the injuries. Thankfully, both Angel and Austin were fine. "She was my best friend, but now, she's even greater to me," said Austin after treating Angel to a nice, big steak. A dog truly is a man's best friend, and Angel and Austin stand as living testaments to that.

You might think of pet birds as loud and annoying, but when a parrot started screeching in the Kuusk household, it did more than annoy. It saved a life. Willie the Quaker parrot noticed that the 2-year-old Hannah Kuusk was chocking on her food. He immediately began flapping his wings and crying out, "mama baby" over and over again. The bird owner and babysitter, Megan Howard, heard the cries from the bathroom and rushed over to Hannah to perform the Heimlich technique. Hannah was safe, and at the end of the day, Willie was a local hero, earning the Red Cross chapter's Animal Lifesaver Award.
