If your dog saved your life, you'd probably reward it with extra TLC, treats, anything. But this week, a guy in Iowa did WAY more than that.
Around 1:30 in the morning on Tuesday, Paul Kemp of Des Moines, Iowa woke up to his dog Sheba barking like crazy and jumping on his chest. Then he realized why . . . when he saw FLAMES spreading across the room, about 10 feet from him.
The first thing he did was try to put the fire out with water. But it was already too late, so he ran out of the house, went to his neighbor's, and called 911.
But then he noticed Sheba wasn't with him, and realized she must still be INSIDE. So he ran BACK into the burning house, found Sheba, and saved HER life.
So far, police aren't sure what caused the fire, but the house was a total loss. Luckily, Paul had homeowner's insurance. He and Sheba are currently in a hotel. (Des Moines Register / KCCI.com)
