Only a week after Pink saved a puppy thrown off an overpass in Los Angeles by paying the huge resulting vet bills, Carrie Underwood rescued an injured dog from a highway.

According to People, Underwood was driving along a highway between Oklahoma and Tennessee on December 30 when she spotted two dogs on the median. The singer was heading home from a family holiday visit at the time. She wrote later on her blog, “I had Ace and Penny [Underwood's own dogs] and a trunk full of luggage and presents in the SUV.” Sadly, one of the two had already died, and the other was “limping and bloody.” Underwood says, “My guess is that the dogs were thrown out of their car by their owners on the highway.”

She decided to name her new friend Stella. After going to an emergency vet for treatment and grooming, Stella went to Underwood’s house until a permanent home was found. The singer updated, “She follows me around from room to room,” Underwood wrote. “She’s the best Lab I’ve ever been around!” The following day she sent news of a bittersweet goodbye – neighbors had adopted Stella. “I cried when she walked out the door,” she wrote, and said husband Mike Fisher “told me not to be a crazy ex-girlfriend about it and stalk them … I can’t help it! She deserves the best life ever!”

Thank you’s to Carrie Underwood for saving a life on her way home!
