Dogs give up lives for owner

I saw this in the news and thought it was worth posting.

http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20080211/...d_rescued_dogs

WINONA, Minn. - Bella, a 3-year-old golden retriever/collie mix who was once rescued as an abused puppy, returned the favor to her owners by alerting them to a house fire. With help from Maddie, a 6-month-old golden retriever, Bella helped get Sue Feuling and her 9-year-old daughter, Mckenzie, out of the house last week. The dogs didn't make it.

"Those dogs were without a doubt the heroes," said Winona Assistant Fire Chief Jim Multhaup.

Bella had jumped on Feuling's bed early Friday morning and started barking, and Feuling then smelled smoke, grabbed her daughter and rushed out of the house.

But Feuling couldn't coax the dogs out of the house, even when she tried to run back in to yell for them.

"Bella must have thought Mckenzie was still in the house," Feuling said.

A firefighter who arrived at the scene tried to save the dogs, but it was too late. The Feulings were taken to an area hospital for smoke inhalation monitoring, but were OK, Multhaup said.

The fire, which was caused by an overloaded electrical outlet, gutted the home, Multhaup said.

While an assistance fund was set up, Sue Feuling said she was only thinking about her dogs. "Everything I lost is nothing compared to them," she said.

Pets are always your friend no matter what.

I read the article this morning and it broke my heart...such brave, loyal and loving frinds those doggies were...they knew they were loved and loved their family in return...my thoughts are with the family right now, the Lady said on Tv she doesn't care about the house or the "things" she just wanted he babies back, so heartbreaking...the town is going to put a plaque up for the dogs in honor of their bravery

that's so sad. It's amazing how animals can do that kind of stuff for the people they love. There used to be a show on the animal planet called animal miracles that I watched every day and it had stories like this all the time.

It was sad that they couldn't convince the dogs everyone was out, but yes, they were very brave dogs.
