When Carson Urness Went Missing, So Did the Family Dog. See How Cooper Saved Carson in a North Dakota Thunderstorm.

In early May, three-year-old Carson Urness went missing from his family home in North Dakota. As darkness fell, his mother realized he was missing – but so was the family dog Cooper, a source of comfort in its way. As 200 people scoured the wide open North Dakota plains in the area, out on a knoll nearby sat Cooper. The family dog refused to move, huddled over a small hovel in the hill. There, shivering in the cold, lay Carson Urness. Just a few hours earlier, apparently the beloved pooch had huddled over Carson’s and shielded the boy from a passing thunderstorm. That’s both a story of rescue and the bond between dog and family. Awesome.
