Our dogs are members of our family. However, if we are going to be honest, they are really more than that. They are our angels in disguise. We go out of our way to give them a comfortable life and spoil them as much as we can. We do it because of their unconditional love, and the daily joy they give us. But, for other families, their dogs have offered so much more. Take Chewbarka, for instance. This barking dog saved his family!

Barking Dog saved his family by living up to his name, Chewbarka

For Theresa Parsons and her family, their dog, Chewbarka, is truly their lifesaver. If it wasn’t for their barking dog, they would probably have died inside their home in Tallahassee, Florida.

This is the ultimate gift that our anyone can give us— our lives and our safety. Hopefully, you will never need your dog to play the role of hero.  However, you never know what they might be called on to do for you.

Theresa’s Birthday Surprise Was Almost a Tragedy

It was Theresa’s birthday when the tragedy took place. Her husband, James, had already fallen to sleep. Theresa was starting to drift off to sleep herself at 2:00 a.m. Suddenly, she heard their dog, Chewbarka, making a lot of noise. Theresa wasn’t alarmed at first. But, when she noticed that their dog didn’t soon stop, she became concerned.

Curious, she slowly made her way to their back porch, fearing that there may be an intruder in their home. That is when she first saw the flames. Their house was on fire! Theresa hurriedly woke up her husband, James, and their son so they could run outside to safety.

By the time they safely made their way out, the house was already engulfed in flames. The fire grew quickly and, in these kinds of moments, every second really counts. So, they were very grateful to Chewbarka for alerting Theresa to the fire. It is wasn’t for the barking dog, they would certainly have been trapped inside. Truly, this barking dog saved his family.

Theresa and James just filed bankruptcy, and both of them are in and out of hospitals because of their medical conditions. Now, they have lost everything they ever owned. Nevertheless, they are not worried because material possessions can be replaced, but their lives cannot be.

As Wife, Mother of 5, and Nana of many more, I have known and loved many dogs who were treasured members of our family. My education, experiences in showing, breeding, and developing pedigree-based breeding programs for others gives me a strong background upon which to base articles of interest to most dog lovers. However, it is my great love for dogs that gives me the passion to share them with other dog lovers.
