NICK EICHER, HOST: A couple in Newfoundland, up in Canada, is grateful to the paw patrol for saving them from a possibly deadly fire.
Scott White’s slow cooker malfunctioned and sent a dull haze of smoke throughout his home.
The Whites were sound asleep and the outcome might have been tragically different if not for one of their pets. The Whites have two of them: a cat named Joey and a dog named Weston.
Now anyone who ever saw an episode of the classic TV show Lassie knows what happens next. Weston bolted into their bedroom barking a dire warning and alerting his owners to danger, right?
Wrong. The dog, who White says has been known to bark for very little reason at all, slept through the entire event.
It was Joey who jumped into action!
White said “Usually, Joey doesn’t bother us when we sleep,” but “I woke up with a paw on my face.”
Sensing trouble, White checked the house, found the fire, and got everyone to safety.
He said Joey got a few extra treats in the morning for his heroics.
It’s The World and Everything in It.
