TRIXIE: Dog of valor.
  • TRIXIE: Dog of valor.
I don't know about you, but I'm voting for Trixie for the Humane Society of the U.S.'s dog of valor award. Her story, among 10 nominees:

Trixie
Owner: Ida Moose
Little Rock, AR

One cold night, 78-year-old Ida and her elderly Cairn terrier mix, Trixie, went through the rain to fill the backyard bird feeder, when Ida collapsed face-down in the mud. The blind Trixie barked, but nobody came to help. Ida used a technique a physical therapist had taught her and “log rolled” to her house, but she couldn’t reach the doorknob. Trixie kept Ida warm for nearly 20 hours until someone heard her pleas for help. Doctors said Ida probably had a stroke and that it’s likely she wouldn’t have survived the night if Trixie hadn’t kept her warm.

Here's the link to vote for your favorite. Voting lasts through March 9.
