A woman named Joanna Mellor had her life saved after going into cardiac arrest and being clinically dead for half an hour when her dog barked until her boyfriend woke up and called for an ambulance.
The UK woman was sleeping on January 2nd when she suffered a heart attack and stopped breathing. Her Lab, Leo, began barking frantically until her boyfriend, Andrew Rayment, woke up. He called 999 and performed CPR until the paramedics arrived.
“I was half asleep when Leo woke me up,” Rayment told the Daily Mail. “I heard Joanna’s breathing becoming erratic and I tried to wake her and tapped each side of her face, but she was unconscious so I called 999.”
“My first thought was that I didn’t want to waste the paramedics’ time but when I was on the phone her breathing went from in and out to every few seconds. I tried not to panic and to stay focused. I kept thinking that the only chance she has relies on me doing the CPR properly.”
Mellor quite expectedly doesn’t remember what happened.
“I remember going to bed and drifting off the sleep and the next I know I’m in intensive care in hospital and told I’d suffered a heart attack,” she explained. “The doctors say I was technically dead because it took Andrew 30 minutes to get my heart started.”
“Andrew said he woke up with Leo barking and jumping up at my side of the bed and going mad. He says he could tell something was wrong with me and dialed 999 and the operator talked him through CPR. At first the doctors said I might be at risk of brain damage and I couldn’t feel my legs and one of my hands was all limp, but I’ve now made a full recovery.”
She has since been diagnosed with Wolff-Parkinson-White syndrome, which causes the heart to beat abnormally fast and can trigger heart attacks.
Amazingly, because of Leo and her boyfriend, Mellor has made a complete recovery, which is rare.
“I’ve been on the job for 14 years and I’ve never seen anything like it,” said paramedic Glenn Radford. “When people suffer cardiac arrests, quite often they are left with neurological problems. They don’t usually make a 100 percent recovery.”
“I owe my life to my dog and my boyfriend,” Mellor said. “If Leo hadn’t woken Andrew up I might not be here today.”

Our Angel, a half-long-haired, half short-haired, light red and white, fawn-face Chihuahua stole our hearts and literally saved my life, or at least my sanity, during a very dark time for me. Angel is the mama and the alpha dog at our house and of our little pack of Chihuahuas and Chiweenies.
According to her papers, Angel was born in Oklahoma on May 3rd and ten weeks later had made her way to our home and into our hearts.
My husband was allergic to everything with fur and feathers. But when our daughter was young we gave in starting with hamsters, mice, rats, geckos, lizards, fish, turtles… and then birds. Then our daughter came home with a dog, Angel, while she was working part-time at a pet store, the summer after her first year of college. She was supposed to be earning a little pocket money for the next year. Instead she pretty much spent all she earned and came home with a papered Chihuahua at the height of the Chihuahua craze… who became our Angel.
My husband said, “no way… absolutely not!” Our daughter was going back to the dorms and he was allergic, so he took Angel right back to the store. They wouldn’t take her back because our daughter had signed the contract and they had given up a full paying customer to let her buy Angel at the employee discount, less than half of what they had had an actual customer for. And of course, our daughter went back to school and the dorms about a month later with Angel in tow insisting she could sneak her in and keep her there. Less than an hour after her arrival at school with her 4-legged roommate, we were on our way to pick Angel up. My husband went through 18-months of allergy shots after that so we could keep her.
A year later our daughter was off sailing around the world with the Semester at Sea program. When she got back mid-year, she was assigned a lulu-bell for a roommate and bargained with us to get an off-campus apartment a semester early. She wasn’t there a month… when she brought home a Chiweenie puppy, Apachi, who was being given away outside the pet store, near school, where she had just gotten a part-time job after returning from her sail. A pet store job is never a good idea for her. Major Problem… it was a no pet apartment and we had signed a year’s lease.
Not long after getting Apachi, our daughter’s colitis flared up to an extreme level (I tend to think some vaccines that they got overseas might have exacerbated her condition adding to some stress in her life at the time and too much partying during that period and trip). After a stint at an alternative care facility, in an attempt to avoid radical surgery, she unfortunately ended up having to have 2 major surgeries and I spent a total of 54-days (24/7) in the hospital sleeping on a cot in her room, with her. My husband, who was home with Angel and Apachi, visited daily. With all that was going on we really didn’t think about the fact that neither 6 month old Apachi nor Angel had been fixed. Angel was the best tempered Chihuahua with a really easy going disposition and everyone had said, if we could breed her with a like-type male, they’d love to have a puppy. So I was looking for a mate for her and Apachi was just a baby, and taking him in to be neutered just got lost in all the goings on.
Next thing we knew… we had 4 puppies: Goji Angelina, Magnum, and Princess (As Pictured Below)
Angel was a natural and terrific Mom who took great care of her little brood and Apachi watched over them from somewhat of a distance… until they were weaned, at which point he took over.
Angel Has Always Loved Riding in the Car and Going for Walks… Before and After the Rest of the Family Arrived.

The boy pups (Magnum and Goji) and Angelina went to new homes at 10-weeks of age and we decided to keep Princess, our ADHD girl… Then a few weeks later Angelina came back to us, because her new family couldn’t keep her and we had requested that if anyone who took a puppy had problems that we would get them back. Long story short… we kept Angelina too and that is how we went from birds, turtles and rats, at the time, to 4-dogs and a fish who survived being fed to our turtles.

GlennBeck.com: If you’re a long‑time listener or viewer of the Glenn Beck Show, you know that we have been on the verge of losing our dog Victor for the past few months.
Quite honestly it has been a battle where I have felt like the bad guy because my family has not been able to let go and I have been watching my dog… suffer. And I have stood quietly trying to ask, ‘Please, family, let’s let him go.’ My son and I are going to dig his grave on Friday, and Saturday at noon at our home, we’re going to put him to sleep.
Sunday we decided to do it, and my son, who is 8, took it exceptionally hard on Sunday. I think the reality truly set in, and we as a family cried all Sunday afternoon and all Sunday night. And we were all down on the floor on the kitchen floor sitting right by his spot where he always sits when we eat dinner and read our scripture.
These are some of my personal photos from that time with my family and my best friend, and I wanted to share them with you because Victor has been such an important part of my life and many of you have followed him over the years through the website and the radio show.

GlennBeck.com: Glenn Beck updated the radio audience today on the status of the his family’s beloved dog, Victor, who has been battling health issues for quite some time now. The family made the incredibly tough decision to put Victor down this weekend, something especially difficult for the kids. How did the History Channel series ‘The Bible [Blu-ray]’ help make the situation brighter?
See Video HERE
Over the weekend, Glenn tweeted out that Mehdi Ouazanni, the actor who plays Satan in History Channel’s The Bible, happened to look a little like President Obama once he was in full make-up. Of course, the media latched onto the tweet and has used it to put a controversial and negative spin on the amazing new television series. But why have they ignored the series up until now? Glenn shared a personal story on radio this morning about how the show has helped his family, how it could help others, and shamed the media’s coverage of the breakout show.
“I want to talk to you about something deeply personal here but also related to the series ‘The Bible [Blu-ray]’. Friday I’m ahead on the series of The Bible because I was asked to review it and we haven’t had a chance to watch all of it and we finished it last Sunday and it still I think has two more weeks to go on the History Channel. And on Friday I tweeted, I don’t even know when it was. I think it was like 11:00 at night, I think, but we had watched The Bible series and I had tweeted something I thought was a funny comment and I said, ‘You have to watch The Bible this weekend because you won’t believe how much the devil looks like Barack Obama.’”
“If you look, if you look at this thing, you just, you can’t deny. Now, did they go out and they try to find an actor to look like him? No. Did he, did he try to make it look ‑‑ no, he didn’t.”
But rather than notice the obvious physical similarities, laugh, and move on with their lives – several in the media decided to take Glenn’s tweet and use it to create controversy around The Bible and its producers.
“Here’s what’s really happening with this. First of all, the networks didn’t want to take Mark Burnett’s show. They didn’t want to take it. They didn’t want to run a series that was the number one show in all of television on the History Channel. It had higher ratings than American Idol. They are so out of touch with you, the American people; or they have such an agenda that they will flush down ratings and connect with actual people for their agenda or because they’re clueless. You decide which is which.”
“Then when it was picked up by the History Channel, then what happens? Then nobody wants to do interviews with these guys.”
“Here’s Mark Burnett, one of the ‑‑ he’s got five, count them, five nights where his shows are number one on different networks. He has five nights in a row, currently! The guy is the biggest name in television and they don’t want to do an interview with him on this Bible thing that you’re doing, you freak. So they ignore him. They don’t pick it up. Then they ignore him. Then it becomes number one and they just do a quick hit on it and move on.”
“And then it fades into oblivion. The ratings still hold. Nobody says a word. And then Friday I make an offhanded remark on Twitter and now the media is in an absolute firestorm.”
“Now here, here is this media so completely out of control that for their own agenda of, I think believe it or not, I think to try to teach Mark Burnett a lesson: Don’t you do anything like this ever again because we’ll ignore you and then we’ll smear you.”
Sadly, the power of The Bible to inspire hope and love through its message has been ignored amid all the controversy. And rather than spend his time attacking the “journalists” who have decided to use his tweet to attack The Bible series, it’s producers, or himself, Glenn decided to share a story that demonstrates why people need to be watching the show.
“On Sunday night we watched the last episode of The Bible. This is the crucifixion and the resurrection.”
“If you’re a long‑time listener of this program, you know that we have been on the verge of losing our dog. Quite honestly it has been a battle where I have felt like the bad guy because my family has not been able to let go and I have been watching my dog… suffer. And I have stood quietly trying to ask, ‘Please, family, let’s let him go.’ My son and I are going to dig his grave on Friday, and Saturday at noon at our home, we’re going to put him to sleep. Sunday we decided to do it, and my son, who is 8, took it exceptionally hard on Sunday. I think the reality truly set in, and we as a family cried all Sunday afternoon and all Sunday night. And we were all down on the floor.”
“Last night we were on the kitchen floor sitting right by his spot where he always sits when we eat dinner and read our scripture. And we all got down on the floor and we read Psalms – not to him but to us. My son was almost inconsolable on Sunday.”
“And we started to watch The Bible, the Mark Burnett show. And it showed the crucifixion and it showed the death. my wife and I were with the kids and we knew what was coming and we knew that it would be good. And my son got off the bed at one point and went down onto a floor where he sat with Victor and he laid on him and sobbed, and petted him.”
“But in the point of the movie where Christ rises and there is eternal life, Raphe turned his head to the television and we began to talk about how we’ll see Victor again and how death is just temporary separation.”
“There are people and forces in this world that don’t want you to believe that. There are people and forces of this world that don’t believe it themselves. They don’t understand the peaceful message. They don’t understand the comfort. They don’t understand the meaning of that one man’s life. Everything to them needs to be turned into some political debate. Because of ratings, everything needs to be divisive. Because of what they believe and because they will not tolerate, they do not believe in freedom of speech, they do not believe in the individual choice, they do not believe in the true message of Jesus, they believe in collective salvation, that somehow or another we all have to save everybody, where we are truly powerless. They will look for anything, anything at all, to divide us, to isolate, to teach a lesson to Mr. Burnett and Roma Downey, ‘You are in a space, that you are not welcome and we will not welcome you in that space. We will ignore you or if need be, we will ridicule you. We will smear you, but we will not talk about the amazing power of a movie that when I was a kid networks would have begged to air.’”
“Because I think maybe, just maybe back then there were a few more people that understood because they had actually seen it in their own lives, the power, of the story of redemption, forgiveness, and eternal life.”
“I don’t know what you have going on in your life. It’s been a hard year for us. The last 12 or 18 months have been extraordinarily difficult. And I’m not the only man who has struggled with the end days of his best friend, nor will I be the last, nor will this be the last time that I struggle with this decision. But we found peace. Even though we have hard work ahead of us in the next few days, we know the truth, and the truth shall set you free.”
“A personal note: I thank Mark Burnett and Roma Downey for their courage, for their inspiration, for their willingness. I wrote to them yesterday, and I’ll say it publicly: I apologize for being so foolish to think that one can still joke today. Please don’t be lost in the message of the media. If you haven’t watched The Bible yet, this is the most important episode, and it’s coming up Sunday. A vision, a gift that I haven’t seen ever before on television.”

A Look At Life !
Inner Peace: This is so true
If you can start the day without caffeine,
If you can always be cheerful, ignoring aches and pains,
If you can resist complaining and boring people with your troubles,
If you can eat the same food every day and be grateful for it,
If you can understand when your loved ones are too busy to give you any time,
If you can take criticism and blame without resentment,
If you can conquer tension without medical help,
If you can relax without alcohol,
If you can sleep without the aid of drugs,
Then You Are Probably:
The Family Dog!

This speaks for itself…
By AFPJan 16, 2013:
ROME – Since his owner died two months ago, Tommy the dog has not missed a single mass in the small church in southern Italy where his mistress’s funeral was held, Italian media said Wednesday.
When the bells of the Santa Maria Assunta church begin to toll each afternoon in San Donaci near Brindisi, the 12-year-old German Shepherd sets off from the village to get himself a front row seat next to the altar, Il Messaggero newspaper said.
His owner, who was known in local dialect as "Maria tu lu campu" — "Maria of the fields" — had lived alone with Tommy and three other rescue dogs, who used to follow her faithfully on her daily rounds and have now been adopted by the village.
After following his mistress’s coffin up to the church on the day of her funeral, Tommy has returned daily, sitting quietly throughout masses, baptisms and funerals, according to local priest Donato Panna, who now wouldn’t do without him.

TheBlaze: At the end of tonight’s Glenn Beck Program, the host paid a special tribute to a member of the Beck family not often mentioned on radio or television, the family’s canine elder statesman, Victor the German Shepherd.
As Glenn explained, Victor was the family’s first choice for protection after they started receiving death threats in 2001. This very special German Shepherd has stood guard for the Beck family for more than a decade. Victor’s presence and unwavering devotion has allowed Glenn to spend nights away from his family for the many business trips required by his work.
From Wednesday night’s Glenn Beck Program, the emotional tribute to the Beck family’s best friend.
Prayers for Glenn’s dog Victor
(Begin transcript) (Video of following transcript)
Tonight I want to leave you with a personal note: That great teachers are found sometimes in the most unlikely of places.
It was right after 9/11 that I received my first death threat. It was from a Muslim extremist that said he would kill me and my whole family if I didn’t stop talking. It was the first time I ever had any professional interaction with the FBI and we were told to go home. We didn’t even have curtains on the windows of our house at that time. I went home and I explained as calmly as I could to my wife as that we had to take sheets and blankets and put them on our window as soon as we could. That night we had a serious discussion with men who carried guns outside our bedroom door and in our property and we had a discussion about buying a gun. And my wife and I having not grown up around guns decided the answer was ‘No’. Laughably we thought we weren’t responsible enough to have one. So we were instructed to leave town for a month.
I was living in Florida at the time and I took my family to Los Angeles and we couldn’t tell anybody that we were in LA for a month. We knew we needed something in the house to protect us.
Great teachers are everywhere. And they’re found in unlikely places but they’ll teach us great lessons. Victor has taught our family great lessons in duty an devotion. I have been able to be away from my family on road trips with comfort because he has been a part of our life. And he is teaching me now a very difficult lesson in dignity.
He has been on watch every since we met him. He’s a service dog and he has become a much loved and loving part of our family. In addition to his job as protector his unwavering affection has been a lesson for our whole family. He came into our lives to protect us. And he has done that and much more. He’s an amazing dog and he has taught me and my family about protection, devotion, dependence, caring and he is now teaching us the hardest lesson: learning when to let go.
We have depended on him for years and now his body is failing him. And now he depends on us to protect him and to care for him and to ultimately to decide what’s best for him. Not for us. For him. The Victor decision is one I think we both know about. I know and he knows and I can see it in his eyes and we both know the other one knows that it doesn’t make it easier.
Victor’s lessons are ingrained in us forever. Protection, devotion and dignity.
I don’t know what this holiday is going to bring us, but it may be a very tough decision. I would ask you for your prayers for Victor and our family and the difficult decisions that we face. Thank you, Victor.

Save a Life…Adopt Just One More…Pet!
Everyday we read or hear another story about pets and other animals being abandoned in record numbers while at the same time we regularly hear about crazy new rules and laws being passed limiting the amount of pets that people may have, even down to one or two… or worse yet, none.
Nobody is promoting hoarding pets or animals, but at a time when there are more pets and animals of all types being abandoned or being taken to shelters already bursting at the seams, there is nothing crazier than legislating away the ability of willing adoptive families to take in just one more pet!!
Our goal is to raise awareness and help find homes for all pets and animals that need one by helping to match them with loving families and positive situations. Our goal is also to help fight the trend of unfavorable legislation and rules in an attempt to stop unnecessary Euthenization!!
“All over the world, major universities are researching the therapeutic value of pets in our society and the number of hospitals, nursing homes, prisons and mental institutions which are employing full-time pet therapists and animals is increasing daily.” ~ Betty White, American Actress, Animal Activist, and Author of Pet Love

Great Book for Children and Pet Lovers… And a Perfect Holiday GiftOne More Pet Emily loves animals so much that she can’t resist bringing them home. When a local farmer feels under the weather, she is only too eager to “feed the lambs, milk the cows and brush the rams.” The farmer is so grateful for Emily’s help that he gives her a giant egg... Can you guess what happens after that? The rhythmic verse begs to be read aloud, and the lively pictures will delight children as they watch Emily’s collection of pets get bigger and bigger.
