Daschund Saves Owner and Inspires Recovery

Tom McKinney of Yuba City, California fell off a ladder and couldn't move. His neck was broken. His 10-year-old daschund Chelse was the one who found him. No one else was around, so McKinney told Chelse to get help -and she did, by waking McKinney's sleeping wife and alerting her to the emergency. Now, Chelse is inspiring McKinney to walk again. After all, she had been through almost the same thing herself!
Doctors were worried that Tom may never walk again, but just two months later he’s moving around. He says he drew strength from Chelse who, seven years ago, also had to learn to walk all over again,

“Our vet had said, “you know that she had broken her back,’” said Tom.

They never thought Chelse could walk again. Tom says that if she can do it, why can’t he?

“[She] basically said, ‘don’t you quit.’ Anyway, I won’t,” said Tom.
