Dave Furukawa tells HLN that his guide dog, Simon, went with him everywhere: work, church, restaurants -- even on vacation! Ultimately, Simon’s loyalty could have saved the life of Furukawa's son William.
Furukawa, William and Simon were walking to school last month when a driver allegedly ran a stop sign. Furukawa was hit and thrown onto the car. But before the car could hit 4-year-old William, witnesses say Simon pushed him out of the way, probably saving his life.
Furukawa was just released from the hospital, and he’s going to be OK. So is William. Sadly, Simon didn’t make it. But his owner says the dog will forever live on in their hearts as a hero.
