Heroic dog saves paralyzed man

Untitled-1 copy

We have here another heart-warming story of how man’s best friend turned out to be a hero. Stories like this are always reassuring that all isn’t lost in our world.

A four year old Golden Retriever was declared a hero when he saved a paralyzed man.

While negotiating a muddy field, the man’s wheel chair got stuck. He couldn’t get himself out of the fix.

When the man, Gareth Jones, found himself unable to move, the former soldier’s service dog answered the call. He dutifully pulled the rope that Jones threw to him until the wheelchair was pulled free.

Said Jones, “He didn’t let go until I was clear. He knew exactly what he was doing.”

Halu-Halo literally means, “mix-mix”. And it is just that: a mixture of sweetened fruits and beans, lavished with pinipig (crisp flattened rice flakes), sugar and milk, topped by crushed ice and ice cream. You know its summertime when halo-halo stands start sprouting by the roadside and by the beach.
