    Charles and Summit were at their community dog park in Ocala, FL, when Summit ran to the fence and began barking. Charles thought this unusual as Summit doesn’t bark much.
    In the distance, Charles could see a person lying in the gutter. When Charles and Summit went to investigate, they found a 92-year-old lady who had fallen backwards and hit her head on the pavement while trying to pull weeds.
