Hero Pooch Keeps Runaway Toddler Warm And Alive
"When two year-old Tyler Jacobson went missing for 12 hours in bitterly cold temperatures - there was one best friend he could count on.
In this case, however, his faithful companion had four legs and a very waggy tail.
Police found the toddler being guarded by the family labrador after he wandered out the back door of his home in Elgin, South Carolina.
Police launched a huge search with dog teams and a helicopter but called it off in the small hours of Saturday morning"

This story illustrates the fact that a dog is a man`s and a baby`s best friend. No home is complete without a faithful dog and a playful kitten.
A dog is a member of the family, and it`s an outrage that the pooch wasn`t named in the Daily Mail article.
Tyler was wearing only a diaper when he left on his epic journey, but he had the fluffy dog to keep his warm and alive.
Tyler`s dad is serving in the army, and his mom seems to be missing in action. The mom has some `splaining to do, how could a toddler have wandered away from the home?
Thank goodness that there`s a dog to watch over the toddler.
