Dogs have a way of finding the people who need them, and filling an emptiness we didn’t ever know we had.

Alert guide dog in training
A guide dog in training is being credited with saving the lives of two people after alerting them to an out of control speeding car.
A yellow Lab named O’Neil was the first to notice a car driving backwards down a sidewalk in downtown San Rafael, Calif.
Surveillance cameras show the three walking down the street when O’Neil looks back first to see the car. His turn alerted trainers Todd Jurek and Danielle Alvarado of the danger and they quickly ran around the corner to safety.
Jurek and Alvarado were assessing O’Neil to see if he was ready to be assigned to a blind person.
“So I think O’Neil heard the wheels come upon the curb, so he heard that before I did,” Jurek said.
“It was him first, and then me.”
The car was driven by a 93-year-old-woman who had been attempting to parallel park when she hit the accelerator instead of the break.
No one was hurt in the incident and no charges will be laid.
