Mindi and her husband loved their new dog Papillon, a two-year-old collie. However, when he began acting out and chewing their furniture, they thought maybe he was a bit of jealousy over their newborn baby daughter.
On June 19, 1993, Mindi was home alone with Papillon and her five-week-old daughter, Rachel. She had just put Rachel down for a nap and decided to take a quick shower and nap herself.
While in the shower, Papillon started barking furiously in another room. At first, she didn’t think anything of it and continued on with her shower.
Mindi didn’t want the barking to wake the baby, but just when she was about to get out of the shower, Papillon bolted through the bathroom door and stuck his head right through the shower curtain!
She remembered watching old reruns of Lassie and how they dealt with animals communicating with humans. “I figured he was trying to tell me something; I didn’t know what,” Mindi said. “On TV they would have followed him, so I followed him.”
Mindi watched Papillon jump up and put his front paws onto Rachel’s crib… and that’s when she noticed her daughter’s lips were blue.
Watch the video below to see what happened next — and why Mindi and her husband decided Papillon was the best dog in the world.
