Dogs are absolutely amazing creatures. Sometimes, they become lifesaving heros. Kevin Weaver, a diabetic man, has a dog named Belle who had been trained to bite down on the ‘9’ on his cell phone to speed-dial 9-1-1 in an emergency. This is exactly what Belle did when Kevin collapsed from a diabetic seizure. You can read the nearly unbelievable story about Belle here. Kevin said, “There’s no doubt in my mind that I’d be dead if I didn’t have Belle,” who became the first canine to win the VITA™ Wireless Samaritan Award – an award reserved for those who use their cell phone to save a life, prevent a crime, or help in an emergency.
