    They are certainly not common. But you do run into them once in a while, thus me saying they “are not too rare.”

    For example, a short time after I posted my comment “about 6 hours ago”, but before you posted yours “about 3”, I ran into this article by absolute coincidence:


    It’s in Dutch, but you can use Google Translate if needed. It’s based on a news article published exactly 75 years ago, on February 16, 1945. At the very end, there is a story about “Ricky”, a dog that worked on the de-mining of the Netherlands at the time the Nazis were being expelled. Ricky save his handler’s life after a mine accidentally exploded.

    The article was published today on the kids version of a website dedicated to re-telling the liberation of the country in real time based on what the news showed, which I follow as part of my Dutch learning.

    My point is that you do run into these stories every once in a while even if you don’t look for them. So, not common, but not too rare.

    Well, maybe not his life, but the cat certainly saved the boy from being severely hurt by the dog:


    I haven’t heard the flood story, but stories of dogs saving their owners are not too rare.

    Good point. He shouldn’t have been able to reach his Happy Zone.

    Viola says hi to Ernesto Lacuna, so she sees him.

    Ernesto introduces himself as Ernesto Lacuna to Madeline Otterloop. Clearly, Petey’s mom and Alice can see Ernesto.

    (Sorry for the silly comment. I posted it so I can google this strip in the future as a reference.)
