This Thanksgiving article is dedicated to my second rescue, Emma, a Shepherd/Rottweiler mix, who saved me 11 years ago on December 1 from a charging horse. We lost Emma two years ago, but I have never forgotten her heroic actions of that day, nor has my loved ones. When an animal saves your life, you are forever thankful. For more stories of heroic animals, read “Man's Best Friends: True Stories of the World's Most Heroic Dogs” by John McShane.
