They say "Dogs are man's best friends" and dogs throughout history have proven this time and again. Dogs are most loyal species we ever come across.Animals specially dogs are capable of love and they can love better than any other human could..!
They love you no matter what. Dogs have been our companions, our friend, our partner in crime since time immemorial. From Hachiko who waited for his dead owner to return, for 14 years, to Leala who saved this toddler Alexander Kenny from drowning; dog's have shown us that they have a heart of gold.
This cute little toddler, Alexander Kenney was unconsciously floating in a dam near Coffs Harbour in NSW, he was found by his nine-year-old pet dog Leala a fortnight ago. His pet dog showed an immense presence of mind and ran towards Alexander's father and he performed CPR for 27 minutes after which he was airlifted to a Brisbane hospital and placed in an induced coma. The two-year-old has surprised doctors by making a 'miraculous recovery'. He is now the apple of everyone's eye :)
There love for each other is evident in the picture. Imagine Leala's condition when she found Alexander floating in a family friend's dam near coffs harbor, she tried to save him herself. But she was unable to do so..
The drenched dog ran back to catch Alexander's father's attention by showing a quick presence of mind. He performed CPR on his son. And then Alexander was air lifted to a Brisbane Hospital.
The doctors told the parents to be prepared, that they may not be taking this boy home and if they did take him home he'll probably have some sort of brain damage. It could not get more worse for them.
The toddler left doctors in disbelief 48 hours later when he started making a speedy recovery and was able to breathe on his own after being brought out of the induced coma. The doctors were pleasantly surprised with these turn of events.
Alexander's miracle recovery was possible only because of his father's CPR and Leala's quick-thinking instincts. 'Without Leala these grateful parents wouldn't have their little boy with them today. All the lords glory to his amazing creature Leala. You make the living race proud.
