Mon Mar 12, 8:37 AM ET<br><br><br><br>
CHICAGO (Reuters) - If a dog is man's best friend, a disabled U.S. Air Force veteran showed the feeling is mutual by saving his drowning pet with mouth-to-snout resuscitation and CPR.<br><br><br><br>
Lucy, a 10-month-old English bulldog, chased ducks into a partly frozen lake near Randy Gurchin's home in Papillion, Nebraska, but quickly became paralyzed in the icy water and briefly went under.<br><br><br><br>
The 50-pound (23-kg) dog was unresponsive and had a blue face and bloody foam around its muzzle when Gurchin, who flew combat missions over Iraq and Afghanistan, edged onto the ice.<br><br><br><br>
"The ice started to crack under me. I just picked her up," he said. "I thought she was dead."</div>

Another good reason to learn CPR. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/yes.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":yes:">

Yep, I took Pet First AID at our Red Cross. I think the class was free, but I paid $10 for materials so that I could keep the book and first AID kit.<br><br><a href="http://www.redcross.org/services/hss/courses/pets.html" target="_blank">http://www.redcross.org/services/hss/courses/pets.html</a><br><br>
The information is online too.
