Dog Rescues Owner After Bad Fall

A black Labrador named, Mabel is the hero of the household after rescuing his owner, Janet Wilhelm.   Janet was preparing some dog food for her beloved pooch and managed to slip on some spillage, hitting the ground hard, so hard that she unfortunately fractured her hip in five places, and since the dog food was in her garage she was no where near a phone to call for help.

She tried to her best to make her way into her home, but as you ca imagine the pain that comes with fracturing your hip in five places is immeasurably intense. She was sadly all alone, except for the presence of her dogs.

“As they came out (the dogs) I was on the floor, of course, trying to get into the house and the dog came up to me, my black lab, Mabel, and she’s licking my face.  I grabbed onto her collar just because I was in so much pain, and she just started to back up into the house and drag me into the house,” said Wilhelm.

“I had to stop several times because it was so painful, but as I let go, she kept coming back and kissing my face and trying to tell me it’s okay.  I ended up grabbing her collar again and she kept backing up.  And little my by little she dragged me all the way into the house until I could get to my phone.”

Wilhelm is now recovering in the hospital and is expected to make a full recovery, If it wasn’t for Mable who knows what could of happened.
