I'm not crying, YOU'RE CRYING!!! Paula Goodwin was on a hike with her dogs in Anthem, Arizona, when she almost stepped on a rattlesnake. Fortunately, one of her dogs came to her rescue. And he's only a PUPPY!

Todd is a 6-month-old golden retriever. He jumped in front of Paula's leg and intercepted the bite...on his sweet little face. Paula is calling him her "hero." She took him to the Anthem Animal Hospital where he was treated for the bite on his snout. He is expected to make a full recovery. Paula shared pictures of her little-swollen snout on Facebook and we just can't even.
