Dogs are some of the most incredible creatures on the planet. They have keen senses and are able to detect a change in mood or a shift in the dynamics of the family. There's nothing in this world they wouldn't do for their family, and they prove their loyalty on a daily basis. No matter what you do, they are always eager to join in. There’s a reason a dog is considered “man’s best friend.”
Not only can they smell better than we can, they also have an insanely strong sense of hearing. It’s because of these qualities that Patch the dog unintentionally earned the title of being an ultimate hero in the Davis household.
Nola and Richard Davis made the decision to take in Patch the dog so that their children would have a furry playmate. He instantly fit right into his new family and was the friend they never knew they were missing! There was one thing that Patch didn’t care for, though - water. He despised going into the bathtub and hated when it was time for his bath. He would do everything he could to avoid that area of the home at all costs.
Atop this, the Davis family quickly realized that they might have made a huge mistake adopting Patch. He grew into an extremely large dog and they didn’t quite have room in their small home. They held a family meeting to discuss the possibility of giving Patch to a new home.
The son, Andrew, was strongly against the idea. He wanted Patch to stay forever and he loved that pup with all his heart. Because of his strong protest, Nola and Richard decided to hold off a few days before making their final decision.
Little did they know, Patch would soon do something miraculous, making them question why they’d ever considered giving him away. Had it not been for Patch’s presence on a cold, January day, Nola Davis wouldn’t be alive.
On this chilly winter day, Nola was home all alone and decided to enjoy a nice, relaxing bath. She ran her water, lit some candles, and turned on some relaxing music. During her long soak, she heard something at the door. Patch burst through the bathroom door and ran right to her side. Nola was instantly taken aback because Patch avoided the bathroom at all costs.
Patch then softly bit Nola's arm, as if to try to pull her out of the tub. She instantly became worried because she knew he was acting completely abnormally. She hopped out of the bathtub, put on her robe and went to escort Patch out of the bathroom when she instantly realized what was going on.
As soon as she opened the bathroom door, the house was engulfed in flames and full of smoke. She panicked at the sight and instantly realized that Patch was coming in to save her from the fire! She was filled with panic but Patch remained calm as he carefully and strategically led her out of the bathroom and out to safety. Nola was in tears as she realized how special the furry hero was that lived within her home.
