We love stories of people saving pets, and this one came from New York last week! 
The article never mentioned the rescuer's name, though!

A brave dog owner risked her life by jumping into a frigid Central Park lake to rescue her precious pooch Sunday.
Cops said the bowwow lover was walking five dogs, including her own, near Lenox Avenue and Central Park North around 10:15 a.m. when one of the tail-waggers high-tailed it toward the Harlem Meer and dived in.

Despite temperatures that hovered in the teens, and “Danger, Thin Ice,” signs that ringed the partially frozen lake, the woman did not hesitate to take the plunge, cops said.

Police used a life preserver to pull her and the tiny dog out of the Meer, as witnesses and the four other dogs watched.

Gift/Memorial Suggestions

Several of our friends have lost loved ones (human and pets) and we found that one of the best ways to honor their memory is to give to an animal charity.
What better way to recognize a life of love, than by giving another life a chance for love?
We donate to many animal rescues, but because we volunteer with
DC Weimaraner Rescue and Coast-to-Coast Dachshund Rescue, those are our 2 favorites.
Consider giving the chance of life to a dog or cat.
