LEIGH, England, Sept. 21 (UPI) -- A blind British mom says her guide dog pushed her 1-year-old son's stroller out of the path of an oncoming car that hit here and sent her flying.

Jessica Cowley told The Daily Telegraph her black Labrador retriever, Jet, broke free from her and shoved the stroller with young Jacob Cowley out of the way of the car.

"She is a strong dog and she pulled out of my hand and actually pushed the pram out of the way," Cowley said.

The newspaper said it appeared the car that hit Crowley had been struck by another car and pushed into her path as she was crossing the entrance to a parking lot near her Lancashire home.

Even though Crowley was hit by the car, she praised her canine companion for making the right move.

"Even while I was lying face down on the ground, I was happy to know Jacob was safe," she said.

:) Dogs always look after little kids (unless they are vicious or lazy).  I don't know why they do that.

i could be totally wrong, but i don't think dogs have the ability to see cause-and-effect outcomes in that manner, I am betting its pure chance or misinterpretation of what really happened.

I think dogs are very capable of knowing when someone close to them is in danger.

Yeah, because we hardly ever see stories about how Dogs saved peoples lives. /s

 

I think Dogs are more intelligent than you're giving them credit for.

While I can see why you would have doubts, every year scientists seem to discover that various animals are capable of various things that we never really thought they can do. So I wouldn't rule it out.
