Gunnar Kr Sigurjónsson is the very proud father of a smart dog named Diamond, a cute little Jack Russell terrier pooch. Diamond was just hanging out in their home while his human sat on the computer to get some work done when he started barking at him to get his attention. “I knew he didn’t need to do his business, as we had just been for a walk, so finally I gave in and followed him.”
Diamond’s stubbornness turned out to be just the good deed of the day: he’d found an unconscious bird on the balcony of their home. At first, Gunnar thought the bird was dead but then saw it moving and quickly tried to help the little thing. “I gave him some water and some birdseed I had. After an hour or so, I was going to set him free, but wanted to take some pictures first, so I put it in my open palm and took some snaps,” he shared. “Then he flew a big circle in my living room and landed back… right on top of Diamond’s head!”
They named the bird Bibi and it became overnight friends with Diamond while the bird recovered. The next day, the birdie was strong enough to find its pathway up and he went on the search for adventure, but he’s still remembered by his dog buddy!
