Wonder dog: Pooch foils owner's suicide attempt3/7/2013
If you weren’t already a dog lover, one intuitive, alert and loyal pooch is about to convert you. Recently, a 63-year-old woman in the French town of Sorgues went to her garden with a .22-caliber rifle. She intended to commit suicide. After firing several test shots, she prepared to shoot herself, putting the gun to her chest. But at the moment she pulled the trigger, her German shepherd jumped on her, diverting the bullet. The woman's husband later discovered her with a non-life-threatening chest wound. A police officer said the heroic — and clairvoyant — canine "probably sensed things and knocked into her to save her." [Source]
