Ashely Blake and a training partner were out for a run on a wooded trail in Tennessee last week. When they left that morning they had no idea they would save a life that day, let alone five.
Blake and her friend Joshua Scott were about 6 miles into their 14-mile cross country run through Frozen Head State Park when they heard something. It was just off the trail and it caused them to stop in their tracks.
“It was just a little rustling that caught us,” Blake told The Dodo. “It’s usual to hear forest critters, and that’s what we expected. We turned and saw this black pile.”
Blake and Scott inched closer, they saw what looked like a pile of black fur.
“It was five puppies huddled together,” Blake said. “It was close to freezing temperatures and they were trying to stay warm. As trail runners, you see a lot of wildlife, but never puppies.”
