Man's Best Friend, Part II

A few months ago I relayed the story about an Indiana man whose dog saved his life. To dog-loving readers, it will probably come as no surprise that it’s happened again. (Well, different dog; different man.)

Kevin Weaver, of Ocoee, Florida, says the last thing he remembers from the day he almost died was walking his dog, Belle. If you asked her, Belle would tell a different story. You see, Belle has been trained to keep a close eye on Kevin, who is diabetic, and to call for help should anything unusual happen. (Belle periodically licks his nose to take her own reading of his blood sugar levels.) When Kevin suffered a seizure brought on by a sudden drop in blood sugar, he fell and hit his head. Belle retrieved his cell phone from the table and called 911.
