Dog dials 911 to get help for owner

Police say a service dog trained to use the phone called 911 and got help when his
Scottsdale, Ariz., owner suffered a serious seizure.

Buddy, an 18-month-old German shepherd, used his teeth to press
programmed buttons until a 911 dispatcher came on the line, The Arizona
Republic reported Sunday.

Buddy can be heard whimpering in a recording of the call placed
Wednesday from the home of Joe Stalnaker, who suffers seizures from
injuries received during military service, the Republic reported.

Buddy was trained to retrieve the phone and call 911 with his teeth when
Stalnaker blacks out, the Republic reported, noting Buddy previously had
made three or four 911 calls for other emergencies.

"He's my world. He's my best friend, no question. He's always there," said
Stalnaker, who was hospitalized for two days but has recovered.

Some pet owners have all the luck.

I could be laying in a pool of my own blood and piss and my 2 heroes would call Kelsies Deli for a delivery of Boars Head Select Cut.
