Dog Saves Injured Bird Who Thanks Him In An Unexpected Way

By Ryan Sigler

A very special Jack Russell Terrier named "Diamond" has proven to be a true gem.

Diamond, who lives in Iceland with her pet parent Gunnar Kr Sigurjónsson, was in the middle of a regular Wednesday — or so she thought. Gunnar, unknowingly, was about to set into motion a chain of events that end with what might be one of the cutest experiences of either Diamond or Gunnar's lives.

Our hero dog got his owner's attention by whimpering outside of the balcony door. Diamond then did just about the sweetest thing ever by alerting Gunnar to a small bird that laid motionless on the ground. Gunnar assumed the worst and tried to scoop up the poor little bird, but then the first of two very amazing things happened: The bird regained consciousness.

Gunnar and Diamond welcomed the tiny, little birdie into their home, feeding it corn and giving the little guy plenty of water. Soon the injured little birdie began chirping and tweeting with absolute joy. The invigorated bird even got up and flew around the home, but where it landed is truly the most amazing part about this whole story.

The little bird — who just minutes ago was in a really bad spot — ended its energetic flight in the sweetest resting place of all: right on top of Diamond's head. If that's not a bird's way of saying thank you, we don't know what is.

After a few more minutes of sitting on Diamond's head, it was time for the bird to leave, but not before Diamond got to give the little bird a bunch of little smooches/pecks goodbye. Way to be a good girl, Diamond!
