Dying bulldog saves owner from fire: Fire comes two weeks after vet discovers dog’s cancerous tumors

PS 05.27.09

Bulldog who saved owner is put to sleep

Brittney stopped eating on Monday and her cancer caused increased bloating in her stomach. Her owner felt the best way to repay her for saving his life and the kindest thing to do for her was to euthanise her today.

At least she did not suffer long and was able to be a genuine heroine before her death. My thoughts are with Scott Seymore, the nine-year-old bulldog's human companion. I know what a great loss it is, and all I can say is, take care, and know the pain does ease after awhile, but the memories stay, and they are comforting.
