Minnesota residents aren’t scared of a little cold. In fact, below-zero temperatures are a regular occurrence in the wintertime. So, when something needs to be done outside of the house, it takes more than a little frigid weather to keep them inside.
Even still, Tim Curfman is careful with his 4-year-old dog, Midnight, during cold spurts, and only takes her out for short periods of time. Recently he let his pup out to play as he took out the garbage, but he had no idea that Midnight would end up saving a life.
According to Tim, while they were outside in the -1 degree cold, Midnight “perked” her ears up and looked at him as if something was wrong. He told CBS that “she doesn’t normally do that” so he definitely had the “feeling that something was up.”
Midnight then led him to the side of his house where he saw his 87-year-old next door neighbor, Noreen, had fallen while trying to fill her bird feeder. She was stuck where she had fallen and couldn’t get herself up.
Tim suspects his sweet neighbor had been out there for a solid 30 minutes trying to get up. He quickly ran to her side and called for his wife to help. The couple got Noreen inside and into some warm, dry clothes. Noreen made a full recovery, only because Midnight found her in the nick of time.
As for Midnight? Tim said “she got so many treats it was a shame” because he’s “been very proud of her because it’s not every dog that pays attention to things like this.”
We agree Midnight deserves all the treats her heart desires!

Hobbs is a brand-new golden retriever puppy who is getting to know the world around him in his new home. He’s got lots of new toys and balls to play with and his new owners are lavishing attention on him, so life is good. There’s only one thing standing in the way of Hobbs feeling right at home — the steep, scary staircase in his family’s house.
As Hobbs sits at the top of the staircase, his human dad urges him to take his first step. But when you think about how gigantic that drop is to a puppy this size, you can see why he is hesitant to put his paws down on the stair below. He just utters a sweet little puppy squeal and looks dad in the eye as if to say, “You’re kidding, right?”
Undeterred, the dog dad decides that the best way to get Hobbs to take a step is to demonstrate how to do it himself.
Once Hobbs sees Dad doing it, he adorably musters the courage to take a tentative step as well. The two proceed this way down the stairs, only pausing so that Hobbs’ parents can move him to the wall side of the stairwell rather than risk having him fall.
The little guy soon starts to move just a little bit faster and his dad keeps a hand on his back to make sure he doesn’t tumble head-over-paws. Before long he has mastered the entire staircase!
Wait until you see the happy little wiggle Hobbs makes once he has all four paws securely on the ground floor! We didn’t think he could get any cuter but somehow he managed to do just that. Puppies grow so fast that we’re certain in a week, no one will be able to slow this little guy down as he roams from floor to floor!
