Hearing Dog Sadie possibly saved me again last week. At 2:20 AM my cell phone vibrated and lit up with a tornado alert. "Take Shelter Immediately" I knew before I went to bed that it could get bad so I had put Sadie's crate in the bathroom just in case. At 2:16 AM I woke up with Sadie jumping and pawing at my back. I opened my eyes and asked her, "what's wrong?" Just at that time my phone alert when off. I would never have heard the alarm had I not been already awake. She woke me up before it went off and the storm was getting bad. I grabbed her leash and we went to the bathroom for the duration of the storm. She went right in her cage and was comfortable there until the danger was over. This is the 2nd time that she alerted me before an alarm went off. The first time was only 3 weeks after I received her. She woke me up and I had no idea why. When I opened the bedroom door, the hall was filled with smoke from a down draft of our woodburner. Not enough to set off the smoke alarm but enough to wake her up and for her to let me know something wasn't right. I couldn't live alone without her to alert me to dangers. Thank you Staff at International Hearing Dog for allowing me to have Sadie.
