You would think the circus is in town after hearing this story.



Recently in suburban Ocoee, Belle the Wonder Dog called 911 and saved her owner's neck.

I hear those stories a lot. A month ago, there was one about a cat doing the same thing. I can't believe they're true. That's just too convenient of a coincidence.

The dogs are trained to do it so I'm sure it can be proven. It's not like they were lucky or remembered hearing the numbers from somewhere.

I think it is awsome that Belle is trained to smell the blood sugar levels and dial 9 on the cell phone. That is cool.

Yep. Dogs can definitely be trained to dial a pre-programmed number in an emergency. Now the cat mentioned, I have no idea how that happened. I'm thinking divine intervention.
