How deeply can you connect with a dog? Perhaps, not as deeply as Percy Wascott, a leading Aussie aircraftman did during the World War II.
Rewind to 1942. A six month old rather precarious dog is in deep pain with a broken leg and no one to take care thanks to the Japanese attacks in Darwin, Australia.
A sad feel to know right? But luckily, he has found saviors.
Air force personnel of Darwin take him to the hospital for treatment. Treatment is denied because the black and white kelpie doesnt have a name. The personnel name him Gunner and what happens thereon forms a glorious story in the history of warfare.
Percy Westcott, one of the two airmen who rescued the dog takes ownership of the dog (God bless him, please). Gunner is naturally shaken after the bombing and from all the hurt from his injury. Mr. Westcotts affection however makes him strong.
A few weeks later, while Mr. Wescott busy with other airmen in the field, Gunner began to whine and jump fiercely, 20 minutes into such agitation, the Japanese raiders started bombing the town, similar instances in the month were always preceded by Gunner getting agitated, very curiously, he would never break a sweat when Allied flights were arriving or departing.
The airmen were intuitive enough to recognize the remarkable sensitivity of Gunner, defending the land was now a little easier thanks to his sensitivity for danger. How he went on to live a life full of service and care is another story.
The point is, what would have happened if Mr. Wescott had not cared?
Thankfully, he did.
