I thought I would share this wonderful story with all your dog lovers. " A faithful dog stood guard over it's owner after she was hit by a casr and critically injured in Sydney. The 41 year old woman was hit whilst walking her dog in the city's northwest. The driver stopped to help the woman, but the dog growled and stood guard over it's owner. Paramedics were not able to treat the woman until police arrived and managed to lure the faithful dog away. The woman is in a critical condition in hospital."

I have heard wonderful stories of pets saving their owners lives and protecting them. We had a collie dog when I was growing up. All 6 of us kids were walking up the hill to the mail box and my uncle came flying down the hill in his truck. We had a long steep drive way. It was not very wide. Our collie got in the middle of the road and stayed there till all of us kids got out of the road. Dogs are wonderful pets and protectors. Thanks for sharing this wonderful story.

I really love this story of your protective collie. He must have had some kind of innner sense to be aware of the danger to you children.

Pets are quite remarkably loyal to their owners. I am glad that they officers were able to get the dog away from his owner so she could get care.

I wonder if my cats would do the same for me?

Once again it is proven that there is nothing like a dog for unconditional love, loyalty and protection.

That can be a good or bad thing, good as the animal was really loyal, bad cause it could have injured someone trying to protect her or have waisted valuable time on the owners rescue. Of course the dog was just trying to protect the owner and it can't tell who's good or bad. I hope both of them are in the safe zone, I'd hate the owner to die and maybe the dog be put down for trying to protect the owner as it might get misinterpreted.

What a very fascinating true to life you just shared with us. That particular dog is really the owner's best friend that he never leave the woman alone on the street till the Paramedics arrived. This story is one of a kind that shows even animals can also behave and act/think like human.

What a loyal dog. I'm glad the police managed to get the dog away without thinking that they had to kill it. Some police around here would think that way. I once had a cat and we nicknamed her the get well kitty. Whenever someone was sick she would either lay next to them or on them. I remember being sick once and sleeping on the couch. I woke up and there she was laying right next to me. It was the sweetest thing.

That can be a good OR a bad thing to be honest. I think its wonderful that the dog was and is so loyal to its owner, especially while she was hurt. At the same time, depending on how long it took the police to lure the dog away, it could have cost this lady her life. I hope she survives this accident. It would be a wonderful thing for her to make it through and know that her dog stood guard over her to protect her from any more harm.

dogs are really faithful animals.but the faithfulness of the dog in your story does not benefit the injured owner. had the dog allowed the driver to come near the injured woman and bring her to the hospital, the woman's life may have been not in a critical condition now. the faithfulness of the dog, prevented the immediate help that could have been extended to the injured owner. this only goes to show that dogs no matter how faithful they are, dont think the way humans do, and are irrational beings.

It is neat to have an animal so devoted to you, but in this emergency, it could have really cost her her life.
