I’m pretty sure when they were casting “Lassie”, they never considered a small, yelping, ankle-biting Chihuahua as the lead.  But this story proves that good dogs are good dogs, their size and breed doesn’t matter.

An 86-year-old Navy veteran named Rudy Armstrong lives on a houseboat in Oriental, North Carolina with his Chihuahua, Boo-Boo.

Last week, Rudy had a STROKE.  And he couldn’t get to his phone to call for help because he couldn’t move one of his arms or legs.

So he said, quote, “Okay, Boo-Boo, go get me some help.”  And Boo-Boo DID.  She went running off the boat and brought back the dockmaster, who called 911.

Rudy was in the hospital for five days before he was reunited with Boo-Boo.  Quote, “I’ve got tears running out of my eyes.  Missed her so much, man.”
