Our six dogs don't have the combined brain power to do what that amazing dog did!

What a wonderful story to start off the day!
Thank you BarbCat for the story on this amazing dog--our two dogs aren't near as smart as this one, but they're ours and we adore them!
Thanks BarbCat for posting and Philip for forwarding.

All service dogs are heroes!!! They may be trained to do certain things, but in the end, they do it because they love.

Noted, tweeted, tweeted, and shared. No shock to me, dogs are loving, loyal and intelligent. Kudos to Spirit and the group that trained her.

Bless you dear Barb, for this lovely story - I hope the group Dogs for Life get a lot of publicity for their training of Spirit the dog - what a beautiful girl!

We have been shown how our animals cousins, benefit humans, over and over, again.
Perhaps, those who abuse animals, should have to spent their punishment time, helping to train animals for this purpose.
Now, I would call this a better form of justice.

The dog was trained and uses a modified telephone, but the great love for her owner did the rest.
