Hot on the heels of yesterday’s hero-dog story, about a dog who sniffed out her owner’s cancer, comes this wonderful tale of loyalty and love. When 78-year-old Ida Moose suffered a stroke in her backyard, no one was there to help her except Trixie. Although the dog barked and barked, no neighbors heard, so she stayed with Ida through the rainy night, keeping her warm and safe. Trixie is now a nominee in the 5th Annual Dogs of Valor Awards through the Humane Society of the United States. It’s an amazing story.
