Peggy Keating-Bolm had always been a fan of her sister's pup, Pippa, but then something happened to make her love her even more. While out for a leisurely walk along a quiet wooded road last May, the 3-year-old corgi suddenly became concerned; she'd picked up on a sound so faint it was imperceptible to Peggy's ears.
Pippa then began to bark and lunge, yanking on the leash with such force that Peggy was thrust forward. A moment later — CRACK! — a large, heavy branch came crashing down exactly where she had been standing.
