Elderly woman says her dogs kept her alive after fall

Judy Muhe is a lucky dog, thanks in part to her two beloved Golden Retrievers.

The 76-year-old, who lives alone in Palmdale, Calif., and is battling Parkinson’s disease, said her pups saved her life after a fall caused her to drift in and out of consciousness for two days and left her unable to get off the floor.

“They stayed with me,” she told KABC. “By keeping me warm, and keeping me comfortable, as they could, the main thing was they let me know that I was not alone.”

Muhe said Dodger, one of the dogs, nuzzled her with his nose, while Higgins remained at her side.

Friend Kathy Jacobs and her husband used their spare key to check on Muhe after not hearing from her for two days.

“When I came in we found her right away on the floor,” Jacobs told the station. “The dogs were right here with her. They actually ran to the door and then they ran back to where she was, like showing us she was there.”

Muhe shattered her shoulder and bruised her head when she fell, but she said it could have been worse because she is sensitive to the cold.

She called Dodger and Higgins her “angels on four legs.”

“I have no doubt they would do it again,” she said.
