    Explanation of how he did it, from the article, which no one seems to be reading:

    “Weaver, 34, whose blood sugar had dropped dangerously low. Belle had been trained to summon help in just those circumstances. She had been taught to bite down on the number 9 on his cell phone contacting 911.”

    *Using their keen sense of smell, animals like Belle can detect abnormalities in a person’s blood-sugar levels. The dog periodically licks Weaver’s nose to take her own reading of his blood-sugar level. If something seems off to her, she will paw and whine at him.*

    *“Every time she paws at me like that I grab my meter and test myself,” Weaver said. “She’s never been wrong.”*

    The look on the dog’s face is the best part of this whole thing. Like “Finally, the recognition I deserve. Truly I am a Good Girl.”

    Wow that is great. This also provide a new spin for a posible remake of lassie, she would no longer need to bark you that the barn is on fire, she would simply send you a snap chat.

    It looks like nobody read the article. This was in 2006 and cell phones with buttons almost always dialed 911 if you held down the 9 key. Also, there was essentially no GPS on phones at the time, so the emergency dispatcher likely used the caller ID subscriber info to send paramedics.

    Overall this seems like an ad for the Telecom industry, since the article is very short and seems to only imply that a cell phone can save your life. At the time cell phone penetration was at about 66% of Americans compared to 95+% today.

    “911, what’s your emergency?”

    “*BORK BORK BORK*!”

    “What’s that girl? Little Timmy had a seizure?”

    There’s an award for using a cell phone to get someone lifesaving help? That seems oddly specific.

    Our house had a fire in the garage. We were staying in a hotel because of smoke damage. We called our house to see if any cleanup people were still there. The cat answered the phone. The cat let out some lonely meows.
