“So Young, Yet So Brave”
By UK News Group (Originally in English)
At just eight months of age, black Labrador pup Toby successfully kept an intruder from entering the family home, while his caregivers Jonathan and Samantha Morton were asleep upstairs. Despite potentially fatal injuries that were inflicted from the encounter, Toby’s fearless spirit overcame the situation, and he chased the man outdoors before collapsing from his wounds. Thankfully, the resilient canine made a full recovery and has since been recognized by the veterinary charity PDSA with a Certificate for Animal Bravery. Saying that he dared not think what would have happened without his beloved dog’s intervention that night, Mr. Morton declared, “Toby is our hero.”
For his great intelligence and courage, Supreme Master Ching Hai granted Toby the Shining World Hero Award. On August 6, Golden Year 6 (2009), our Association members presented Toby the beautiful Award plaque, along with many gifts from Master that included a Happy Doggie coat, a bed and £500 for veggie food and treats. His caregivers also received a selection of Master’s books and DVDs with some vegan chocolates.
We join in saluting heroic Toby for his unwavering loyalty and love. You certainly are an angel in disguise and a true blessing for your human companions. Wishing you many years in happiness and shared appreciation with your caring family.
