Hero Pup

I'm sorry, I still can't get over this story:

Dog Saves Owner, Dies Trying to Save Cat

ELKHART LAKE, Wis. Oct 16, 2006 (AP)— After a disabled woman's cat started a house fire, her specially trained dog came to the rescue, then died trying to help the cat still in the house. Jamie Hanson said the 13-year-old dog named Jesse brought the phone so she could call 911 and also brought her artificial leg.

This is the most heroic dog in our state's history. The dog brought the woman her artificial leg and the phone so she could call 911. Then, he selflessy went in to save the cat, who he probably hated and just knew started the damn fire. And he gave his life to do so.

I propose naming at least one humane society in the state after my man Jesse. May the toilets in heaven always provide you with fresh drinking water, my friend.
