You have heard countless stories like this, but they never lose any impact no matter how many times it happens. A blind man was saved from a raging inferno by his loving and loyal dog. In this case, the man was asleep and was unaware a towel had caught fire a few rooms away, but thanks to Jack licking his face, he is still alive today and has his dog to thank for (and some undoubtedly brave rescue workers).
Charles Kennedy was lying in bed, asleep, when his dog Jack frantically came over and licked his face over and over. Charles is a blind man, and Jack is known for helping out and showing love in any way he can. In this case, Charles knew something was wrong. He smelled smoke, and call 911. In the meantime, him and Jack hid in the closet. Well, that part may not have been the best idea, but the rescue workers showed up in time and everyone was fine.
Seems Jack would not even leaves the blind man’s side when he was put on a stretcher and taken to the hospital. It was just a routine check to make sure everything was fine, and it was. Jack and Charles were in perfect health, all because Jack smelled fire and knew something was wrong. We would all hate to imagine what would have happened if Jack wasn’t in Charles life.
