heroic pets!

lets hear stories of your pets helping their humans or other animals!!

my story kind of goes both ways

my sister had a black bear hamster named Lucy, and i went to take her out and play with her. but her cage door was open and Lucy was gone! so i started looking for her everywhere, and when i went into the kitchen, my cat Crystal was sitting in front of the back door(that was open) and preventing Lucy from getting out. When i saw this, Crystal gave me a look that said "you should keep a closer eye on this rodent"
:roll: and i picked up Lucy and Crystal ran off to my room to sleep

if someone 'gives their two cents' when its just a penny for their thoughts..where does that extra penny go?

We got Tucker when I was two. He was, and is, my best friend in the entire world. I once flat out told my mom that if I had to choose who would live between her and the dog, I'd pick Tucker. YEAH. XDD

Anyway... he got a tumor in his eye when he was young. He has blue eyes, and the pigment in them was so bright that the machine they normally used to get ride of tumors wouldn't work properly. We could either take it out, or risk brain damage using the machine. We opted to have it taken out (he looks normal, just like one eye is close all the time).

When he was six, he got a tumor in his other eye, and he developed cancer on his nose. He wouldn't move all day, and even though no one told me anything, it was obvious something was wrong. I used to hug him every day and tell him I loved him before petting him to sleep each night just in case that was the last chance I had.

We bought Rascal because we were sure Tucker would die. My mother took Tucker off all his medications, because we didn't want him to pass all hopped up on steroids and such.

Well, weeks went by with Rascal home, and Tucker had a complete turn around. His cancer went away. His tumor went away. He was up, and running, and playing, and happy, all on no medication. He's now fourteen years old, and still runs and jumps and plays. Rascal is his angel, and his seeing eye dog. He follows Rascal around, because now that he's older he doesn't trust his eye as much and relies on Rascal to lead him around.

I still love him more than anything. =) Sorry for the novel, lol.
