    Disabled former airman rescues 10-month-old English bulldog from lake

    CHICAGO - If a dog is man’s best friend, a disabled U.S. Air Force veteran showed the feeling is mutual by saving his drowning pet with mouth-to-snout resuscitation and CPR.

    Lucy, a 10-month-old English bulldog, chased ducks into a partly frozen lake near Randy Gurchin’s home in Papillion, Nebraska, but quickly became paralyzed in the icy water and briefly went under.

    The 50-pound dog was unresponsive and had a blue face and bloody foam around its muzzle when Gurchin, who flew combat missions over Iraq and Afghanistan, edged onto the ice.

    What a wonderful story. I agree with Nore- I would do the same for my Milo because he would do the same for me. Humans might be fearful of jumping in to save me, but my Beagle would do it without a moment's thought. Thank you for putting a smile on my face, graybar!
