There was something the dog wanted to warn the baby about
Once upon a time, in England, there lived a couple who had a wonderful canine companion named Keola, an American Akita. They had adopted Keola and raised her as if she were their own child, forming a strong emotional bond with her.
When the wife became pregnant, the whole family was filled with excitement and joy. However, as the months passed, Keola’s behavior began to change in a peculiar way. Whenever she saw a pregnant woman, she would incessantly bark, cry, and try to convey some kind of warning. At first, the woman dismissed this behavior, assuming it was just a quirk of Keola’s temperament. After all, the doctors had assured her that everything was fine with her pregnancy.
One day, the dog became especially anxious about the woman’s back pain. Her concerned husband decided to capture the moment with a photograph and shared it on social media, joking about Keola’s protective instincts. To their surprise, friends who saw the photo urged the woman to take the matter seriously and seek medical advice again.
Reluctantly, the woman went back to the doctor for another examination. This time, after thorough tests, it was revealed that she had a kidney infection, a condition that had gone undetected during her previous visits. Had it not been for Keola’s persistent warnings, the consequences could have been fatal for both the woman and her unborn child.
Overwhelmed by shock and gratitude, the woman underwent the necessary treatment, including surgery, to address the infection. Fortunately, her health improved, and she went on to give birth to a healthy baby boy named Lincoln.
The couple was astounded and grateful for their canine companion, who had undoubtedly saved the lives of the woman and their precious child. Keola continued to be a devoted protector, never leaving Lincoln’s side and taking on the role of a caring older sister.
In this heartwarming tale, it becomes evident once again that pets, especially dogs, are incredibly sensitive and emotionally attuned creatures. Keola’s ability to sense and warn about the health issue demonstrated the deep connection and intuition that can exist between humans and their animal companions. She truly proved to be an angel, watching over her human family and ensuring that they were safe and sound.
