Dog's licks, phone-grabbing trick saves woman's life

A woman in US, who broke her thigh bone and passed out after falling on her tiled kitchen, has credited her dog for saving her life.

According to, Bethe Bennett's service dog, Danny, licked her face until she woke back up. Bennett from Arizona asked the miniature schnauzer to fetch the phone for her.

Although Danny had not picked up the phone with his teeth in years, he eventually remembered how to do so, and then Bennett was able to call 911. "I would still be there," Fox News quoted Bennett as telling the news station.

"Nobody was coming to check on me until Monday or Tuesday," she said. Bennett, who is an author, said that she never dreamed Danny would save her life, and now she plans to write future tales about him.
