I know people will think i am nuts for saying it..but in my heart i believe that dogs are angels..sent here to guide and watch over us. She is one of the reasons i believe that so strongly..that and the dogs i have known in my past..now all the religious people can blast me..but it won't change that i believe this to be true
I don't think you're nuts at all. There are sooooo many like stories. I am not religious in that sense. I am spiritual, but not in a conventional, organized, religious way. But, I still don't think you're nuts. After all, what are angels.....really?
I think animals of most all types have a bond of some kind toward babies of any type... a sense or instinct to protect and nurture. (Of course, not all. Some animals EAT others, including babies!)
But I heard about some moose protecting a young boy who was lost in the woods in the snow. (moose are often "aggressive" toward humans)The two moose lay down next to him and close to him to keep him warm until rescuers came. You've probably heard many stories about wolves (Ramulus (sp?) and Remus) and others, where the wolves took care of human children. And primates....And horses. There have been horses who protected and saved humans as well as other animals. You see things on the news about unlikely animals bonding and taking care of the young of another specie. I've seen that on animal planet, a whole show about unlikely animal bonding. It's quite amazing.
There's got to be, in some individuals within various species, some kind of instinct or drive to protect others, no matter what specie it is that they're protecting. What makes some that way and other not, is a mystery. Those individuals must be the angels. Or, if not angels...something else "out of this world" special. LOL.
