Why I love dogs
Missing girl found OK, protected by dog
(BETHLEHEM, Indiana) -- A two-year-old girl who wandered away from her Ohio River home on Tuesday was found Wednesday morning, protected by her family's Labrador retriever.
She was checked out by paramedics and returned to her parents.
Daisy Smith was reported missing from her home in Bethlehem, Indiana, Tuesday evening.
The family dog, named Thunder, was also missing.
Searchers followed the dog's tracks and eventually found the dog and the girl about 15 feet from the Ohio River.
At first, Thunder didn't permit rescuers to approach Daisy.
About 90 people and an Indiana State Police helicopter took part in the overnight search.
Cats don't do that sort of thing.
But, of course, cats don't bark.
