Exclamation TALK ABOUT A SMART HAVANESE

As usual mornings are hectic here, like they are for everyone I'm sure. I sprayed a small fry pan with Pam to start the veggie omelet. Thought I would run upstairs to my office to bootup while the fry pan was heating slowly. In the mean time the phone rang. I was so engrossed in the conversation I totally forgot about the pan on the stove downstairs.

All of a sudden Ditto comes bolting into my office and starts jumping on me, pulling my pants leg, pulling at my blouse and running back and forth to the top of the stairs. At first I though he wanted me to play or go outside to potty. His ears were back so I thought he was scared or got spooked by something outside. Well...... thank goodness I followed his lead and went down stairs to the kitchen. The fry pan was smoking just a little, not enough smoke to set off the smoke detector yet. I then realized he sensed the danger and was trying to alert me.

Now is that a smart Havanese or what?????

YAY, Ditto!!! Good job protecting your family from danger. Tell Mommy to give you extra belly rubs from me (also ask her for a special treat)

WOW! That's awesome...

I've read many stories about dogs alerting/saving their owners. It makes you wonder sometimes if they are undercover guardian angels..

That's amazing! I've read stories like this, but always had my doubts as to whether MY dog would be that smart. Yay, Ditto! Our little forum hero!

Wow! I'm impressed and you are really lucky. I would give him a lot of extra attention and belly rubs if I were you. He certainly earned it. Now if it were my house, based upon what Milo usually does, he'd probably let me know after the house burned down.

Way to go Ditto! That definitely deserves special treatment for the day. I agree Shelly, not sure mine would be that smart. Actually, Tess would probably be that smart but I'm not sure she'd take the time to save me too, and I know she'd leave Cody to fend for himself! Cody would probably only take interest if he thought it had something to do with his food being in danger.
