We all love "feel good" stories, especially when they involve our animal friends. Yes, I am an avowed cat lover, but I can appreciate all animals (yes, even dogs). And, here is a story to prove it! http://www.nbc10.com/family/17450035/detail.html?rss=phi&psp=weird-news Definitely a great story and one I was glad to find. Especially after being upset about the previous story I started a discussion on. I personally am glad Lexi's owner decided there was more to her dog's behavior than "naughtiness". It shows she knows her dog well enough to be able to tell. We've often misjudged our kids, but most of us can tell at some point when our children aren't lying. I think the same is true with our animals if we are really paying attention. So, what do you think? Does Lexi deserve some extra-special treats?? Do you know of an animal who has done something heroic or noteworthy? Tell us about it.

Great story. I do believe that animals have a sense of things that happened that we don't know about and also of things to come,like bad weather, and that I find to be very special.

I know - we had a minor earthquake here in South Jersey back in February 1973. My boyfriend lived on a farm two towns over and he said all the dogs and other animals were making a bunch of noise and barking, etc, just before the ground started to shake, so yes - they definitely do know something is up prior to. They can "feel" things we can't.

He jerz! Well you already know what an animal fanatic I am! God bless that beautiful dog! I was crying when I read that! What a smart doggie! I'm so glad that the owner payed attention to the dog and let it go to the neighbor's apartment. The dog saved the man's life. That is such an incredible story. I hope they give the dog lots of treats!
