Today I got to meet some amazing dogs at the Purina Animal Hall of Fame.
The Animal Hall of Fame tells the stories of four heroic pets. Want to meet them? Here they are!
Nettle is trained as a diabetic alert dog. Brooke and Jade are 12-year-old twins who have type 1 diabetes. He can smell if Brooke and Jade’s blood sugar is low and then alerts Brooke and Jade’s parents. This helps keep the twins safe and healthy. Keep up the great work, Nettle!
Sako is a super dog hero because he kept Joseph safe in the B.C. wilderness after a car accident. He even lay on top of Joseph to keep him warm. Way to go, Sako!
After Badger’s owner, Derik, fell and broke his leg on ice, Badger was able to pull him back to his cabin to call an ambulance. Hooray for Badger!
Bella alerted his owner, Rob, that there was a man who needed an ambulance in their apartment lobby. Bella even stayed with the man until the ambulance came.
I loved meeting these super awesome pets at the Purina PawsWay in Toronto today. I can’t wait until I meet more amazing pets next year!
Don’t forget to check out the May issue of chickaDEE—it’s all about pets!
