Dogs are really smart!

One night, a little boy named Jaylynn Thorpe ran off into the woods. Luckily, his two puppies were with him. During the night, Dipstick and Bootsy snuggled up next to him and kept him warm.

20 hours passed. A search team came out to look for him. They had really cool equipment like a helicopter that could detect heat, and they also had dogs that knew Jaylynn’s smell. But they couldn’t find him. He hid because he didn’t know who they were. The dogs barked, so the searchers knew where Jaylynn was. Those dogs saved him, while they were only kids!

He was cold and hungry. 17 degrees is really cold to not have a blanket on!
