When Lorri Herrick became pinned under her tractor on Saturday May 8 2010, Windsor, Rincon Valley and Healdsburg firefighters with paramedics from Bell’s Ambulance Service rushed to her aid. Out of the corner of my eye, there stood Brady the border collie watching emergency personnel succesfully extricate Herrick from underneath the tractor.
Brady never strayed too far from the tractor during Lorri’s ordeal, patiently waiting for his human friend.
We tend to forget while we bipeds are in life threating situations, animals have their own way of dealing with our problems. Brady seemed very content and secure with the actions Herrick’s rescuers, but was going to stay around just in case, I think.
