Bob was spending that New Year’s Eve at his cozy and warm home with his dog by his side watching his favorite TV program. The two enjoyed the idyllic sight of the snow falling and covering the entire surrounding with a white, icy blanket. Unfortunately, that was all about to change.

As the fire was slowly dying, Bob went outside to grab some logs. He was making sure he doesn’t slip and fall, but it was way too cold and the paths were completely frozen so he did exactly what he feared of, he slipped on the sidewalk and broke his neck. As he tried to reach for help, he realized he was left paralyzed and unable to move.

The poor man found himself helplessly lying in the cold snow. His nearest neighbor lives over a quarter mile away, which made him believe his life would end there on the sidewalk. He couldn’t reach for his phone, nor he could yell loud, because he was in so much pain.

Luckily, Kelsey was there to make him company until someone arrived. The poor dog got scared seeing her owner in that situation and never though of leaving his side. For the long 20 hours Bob spent in the bone chilling weather, Kelsey did her best to keep him warm. She never stopped barking and howling as loudly as she could, hoping for a miracle to happen.

Eventually, Bob didn’t have any energy left so he lost consciousness, but then out of the blue, a neighbor who heard the constant noise the dog was making decided to stop by Bob’s place and see if everything was fine. That’s when the man noticed Bob.

The neighbor quickly called the ambulance who were there in a matter of minutes and rushed Bob to the nearest hospital. When doctors saw his condition, they weren’t really sure whether he would make it or not, because his injury was pretty severe and on top of that, his body was basically frozen.

Luckily, their efforts resulted with a positive income. They were able to heat him and decompress his spine which helped in reversing his paralysis.

“I am so thankful for my two heroes,” Bob said in a statement, referring to both Kelsey and his neighbor. “They are truly heroes and I will be eternally grateful.”

If it wasn’t for Kelsey who was by her owner’s side throughout his ordeal who knows what would have happened to Bob. He was lucky enough to have such a loving and loyal furry pal in his life.
