A few years ago I was expecting some difficulties with my heart. My dog Koenig was always by my side. He would come to my bed before I got up and would smell my breath. If my heart was acting up, he would jump on my bed and lay across my chest.

When he first started doing this, I had not had my heart checked nor did I have symptoms. Once I was diagnosed we became more aware of my symptoms and realized he was doing this when I was having issues.
He is now the handsome 9-year-old blind boy in the picture. He may not have saved my life but he was an amazing source of comfort during that rough time in my life.
