(FOX NEWS)- A dog in Texas thanked a first responder with a big wet kiss after rescuers pulled the dog and his owner from raging floodwaters.
The proper way to thank a firefighter for saving your life
Firefighter Del Ray Pope said that when rescuers arrived on the scene at the Eldorado Bridge in McKinney, they were relieved to see that the rescue would be achievable with a firetruck ladder and rope.
After the two were pulled to safety, the dog, Duke, and his owner were assessed and Pope changed out of his gear.
Then something special happened.
"The firefighter that had Duke on the leash walked back by the truck and, as soon as he saw me, he ran over, two paws right in the middle of the chest, jumped up and started licking my face," Pope said.
