Hero Dog Runs for Help When Owner Collapses
Her legs may only be a few inches long, but Missy the dachshund proved
that she can run like the wind -- when she has to.

Her owner Charlie Burdon, who had recently had heart surgery, collapsed
inside his Oregon home last week. Missy, who was in the yard,
immediately sensed something was awry, ABC2 news in Baltimore, Md. reports.

Normally, the 11-year-old dachshund never leaves her yard unless Burdon
is with her. But this time, she sprinted across the street to the home
of neighbor Charles Mitchell, who was working outside.

Mitchell told Missy to head home, but the loyal pooch refused to budge.
Finally, he began following the little dog. "Missy was right in front of
me, letting me know something was wrong inside that house," Mitchell
told the Associated Press. When he arrived, he found Burdon and quickly
called the paramedics.

It turned out that Burdon had been overcome by a severe case of vertigo.
He's now doing fine -- thanks to Missy. "It's remarkable that you can
put your trust into your dog" says Burdon. More evidence that good
things come in small packages.

Have a wonderful day - see you tomorrow - stay with the happy dance all
day, keep smiling, you're my HERO!!

I love you,
