Dog Helps Rescue Family from Fire
Today a rural Manitoba family are grateful for their dog Duke and his quick thinking. Duke’s human, Albert Sumner, shares a home with his sister, her one-year-old baby boy, and his 79-year-old uncle who is deaf. A few nights ago, Albert was alerted to a problem when he heard Duke scratching persistently at his bedroom door. When he opened the door he found that Duke’s fur on his back had flames on it. That is when Albert knew there was a serious problem.
The Sumner family are lucky that they had such a loyal dog, willing to take a chance risking his life to alert the family to the danger they were unaware of. Hopefully the Sumner’s will be able to relocate and get back on their feet as quickly as possible. That is what Kevin Seawright is rooting for.
