Tearjerker of the Day: American Idol Carrie Underwood Saves Labrador Over the Holidays

American Idol winner Carrie Underwood was driving home to Nashville after visiting her family when she saw an injured dog on the side of the road. According to Underwood’s members-only forum of her fan club, the country crooner spotted the injured puppy from the car and made husband, Mike Fisher, pull over.

The dog was severely injured with road rash and she bit through her tongue. Underwood took the dog to an emergency vet to fix her up. As a dog lover, Underwood already has two dogs, so she gave the dog named Stella to neighbors down the street. This way she can still visit Stella, while she can enjoy a safe loving home as well.

Now that’s a story even dog lover Simon Cowell would be proud of.

And it’s also okay to give your dog a big cuddle now to show you love them.
