Larson was taken to an area hospital for care and rehabilitation. He knows that Sadie saved his life, stating,"If it wouldn't been for that dog barking, I'd still be froze to the driveway."

This week, Larson and his wife were able to celebrate their 69-year anniversary, a milestone which may not have taken place if not for Sadie's keen senses.

O yes Dianne ! I think this happens all the time. I really do. Not long ago, my new 6 year old greyhound terrier something mix was sitting on top of my roomate and barking and barking and barking. I immediately went over to him and realized something was wrong. To cut this to the quick, his blood sugar had dropped dangerously low and he was going into a slow coma. i called the paramedics. But it was Piper that saved him. She was the one that knew immediately something was wrong - I had just thought he was really tired and sleeping. Dogs are the earth's angels - o yes they are.
