When Chandra Sierra passed out in her Texas home last week, there was no one there to help her. . .except Ally, her trained service dog. A severe reaction to medication caused Sierra to lose consciousness, and Ally leaped into action, licking the stricken woman back to consciousness and then helping her make it to the phone:
When asked what she thought would have happened if she didn’t have Ally, Chandra replied, “I more than likely would have had a heart attack, my heart was pounding so fast. Without Ally, I probably wouldn’t have made it through the night.”
The program that trained Ally is pretty fascinating, as well. . .
