Woman Considers Getting Rid Of Her Dog, Then He Kept Barking - She Realizes Why

If it wasn’t for Mindi’s 2-year-old collie named Papillion, her daughter might not be here today as the dog is being credited with saving her child’s life. According to Little Things, the ordeal was right out of a page of the script from an episode of Lassie.

It started when Papillion burst into the bathroom and put his snout into the shower while she was washing. The dog had been barking furiously before he bolted in on her. That’s when she thought of an old episode of “Lassie” where animals would communicate with humans to warn them of danger.

“I figured he was trying to tell me something; I didn’t know what,” said Mindi, according to Little Things. “On TV they would have followed him, so I followed him.”

Papillion led Mindi to her 5-month-old daughter’s room and ran around in circles before hopping up and put his front paws on baby Rachel’s crib. That’s when Mindi noticed something terrifying. Her daughter’s lips had turned blue.

Mindi yelled to her 9-year-old daughter to call 911. Thankfully Mindi was trained as a medic and began to give her daughter CPR. The baby finally started to breathe and cry.

“When the ambulance left I just grabbed Papillion and kept hugging him and told him that he was a good boy for helping save Rachel,” Mindi’s 9-year-old said.

Thanks to Papillon's quick actions, Rachel made a full recovery. Her first words were actually a bark and her sister says she tries to act like a dog whenever she can.
