This submission is by Kaitie Edel, whose everyday Hero Dog is Shadow, a Catahoula Cow Dog.
My Dog is My Hero Because…
My dog, Shadow, is my hero for many reasons. For one, she is my best friend and I can tell her all of my secrets and complain to her about anything and she doesn’t even mind. Anyone that can put up with a 19-year-old girl’s problems without so much as a groan should be given some sort of medal!
On a more serious note, one morning before the sun came up, two men right outside our house began to fight. Shadow alerted us of the brawl and kept the men away from the house until the police arrived. It was a relief knowing that Shadow was there to protect us. Knowing that if anything similar were to ever happen, she would be there, is reason enough to call her a hero, too.
