Baby Jade named for hero dog

Hero dog discovers baby left in a bag, receives honor
By Vetstreet



A retiree was walking his German Shepherd, Jade, in a park in Birmingham, England, on Thursday afternoon when she suddenly ran toward the bushes, laid down next to a bag that had been left behind, and refused to move. When owner Roger Wilday got closer, he realized that the bag was a carrier — with a baby inside. Wilday ran to a friend’s house nearby to call the police.

They brought the 6-pound baby girl to the hospital, where staff members named her for her rescuer, 9-year-old Jade. "Jade’s never found anything before,” said Wilday’s wife, Catherine. “She must have heard the baby crying as these dogs have very good hearing, plus she’s very keen on our grandchildren.” On Friday, West Midlands police, who are searching for the baby’s mother, released pictures and video of the “alert, happy and contented” little girl, who’s still recovering in the hospital. The Wildays, who have four children and five grandchildren, are hoping to get the chance to visit baby Jade. — Read it at the U.K.’s Birmingham Mail

Maybe she'll grow into it ...   ^-^
The skeptic is never for real. There he stands, cocktail in hand, left arm draped languorously on one end of the mantelpiece, telling you that he can't be sure of anything, not even of his own existence. I'll give you my secret method of demolishing universal skepticism in four words. Whisper to him: "Your fly is open." If he thinks knowledge is so all-fired impossible, why does he always look? — James Sire (from, The Universe Next Door)
