Dogs are, without question, the most loyal creatures on Earth.
Their unconditional love and loyalty has been proved once again by a photo that recently won the internet; a service dog refusing to leave her mom’s hospital room. This special connection started when Shauna Darcy decided that a dog could help her in her endless ꜰɪɢʜᴛ with ᴀɴxɪᴇᴛʏ, turns out she wasn’t wrong at all. With Ruby, there was love at first sight, and this lovely pup proved to be more than just a service dog. Shauna said, “While she was training to be a service dog I noticed that she started picking up on changes in my ʜᴇᴀʀᴛ ʀᴀᴛᴇ and would act funny — for example, paw at me, try to get my attention, get on top of me, etc.”
She’s there for her mom, every single moment, her daily routine includes monitoring Shauna’s ʙʟᴏᴏᴅ ᴘʀᴇssᴜʀᴇ and ʜᴇᴀʀᴛ ʀᴀᴛᴇ, especially since she also sᴜꜰꜰᴇʀs ꜰʀᴏᴍ ᴀ ʀᴀʀᴇ ʜᴇᴀʀᴛ ᴄᴏɴᴅɪᴛɪᴏɴ ᴄᴀʟʟᴇᴅ ᴠᴀsᴄᴜʟᴀʀ Eʜʟᴇʀs-Dᴀɴʟᴏs sʏɴᴅʀᴏᴍᴇ.
More than that, this special dog also helps her human companion during her ᴘᴀɴɪᴄ ᴀᴛᴛᴀᴄᴋs, she carries groceries or picks dropped items.
“When I ᴘᴀss ᴏᴜᴛ she gets on top of me and applies all her pressure on me and licks my hands and face until I come around,” the young woman said.
A few days ago, Ruby sᴀᴠᴇᴅ her mom’s life. She started to alert Shauna that’s something wrong. And even though the young woman was feeling good she chose to trust Ruby’s instincts and called an ambulance. “It turns out my heart was going into ᴀᴛʀɪᴀʟ ꜰɪʙʀɪʟʟᴀᴛɪᴏɴ,” she said. “By the time the paramedics came, I was in ᴘᴀɪɴ and barely conscious.”
During their hospital stay, lots of people stopped by to meet Ruby. She’s always very popular whenever she and Shauna go – but always sticks close to Shauna’s side, as she loves her so much. And Shauna loves her right back.Without Ruby, Shauna’s life would be very different. Ruby helps to keep her healthy and safe every day, and Shauna couldn’t be more grateful for Ruby’s love and loyalty.
“I wouldn’t be alive without her,” she said.
