It’s a truth universally acknowledged that Molly’s new owners are angels, taking her in and introducing her to the delights of San Francisco. They also do a nice side-line in miracles, helping the dog formerly known as ‘cuddly’ to shed kilos at a rate that must surely qualify her for the title of canine Weight Watcher of the Year.
But for one woman at least, a pudgy dog proved to be her guardian angel. According to today’s Independent, an elderly woman in Bournemouth narrowly cheated death after being hit by a car on a pedestrian crossing. Turns out she was flung into the air by the impact, but landed on her 98kg Rottie, Amber, who cushioned her fall and saved her from being splattered very thinly over a wide area.
What really puzzles me, though, is where someone gets off calling a behemouth a prissy name like Amber?
