A dog named Toby is a very sweet and attentive boy who lives in Canada with his owner, Ruth Hamilton.
Since the girl took the puppy from the shelter, he has become her best friend, who will always support and protect her.
And the other day, Toby also showed himself as a hero!
At about 11:30 pm, Ruth woke up in her bed from a very loud barking.
It was Toby.
“He barked twice, as if to say “Get up”,” she recalls.
She rolled over to the other side of the bed, and a few moments later there was a loud crash over her head.
Incredibly, it was caused by a piece of meteorite, which crashed into the Hamilton house at high speed, broke through the roof and fell exactly on the place where Ruth had slept a couple of seconds before.
“I jumped out of bed and Toby stopped barking,” she says. “Then I thought, ‘Has it really happened?’
The girl showed a fragment of the meteorite to experts, who agreed: it really came from space.
Other residents of the area confirmed that they saw a meteorite fall to Earth that night.
“They explained to me that sometimes when meteors enter the atmosphere, an explosion occurs. Perhaps he reacted to this, since the dog has better hearing than ours, says Hamilton. “But we’ll never know for sure.”
