Heroic Dog Saves Ogden Man From Fire
OGDEN, Iowa -- An Ogden man says he's only alive today because of his heroic dog. Bella is a Border Collie that loves playing with a basketball. Now, she's also a hero. Monday afternoon, her owner, Larry Mathews came back to his home for a nap after taking his kids to school. Minutes later, Bella was waking him up. 'I was upstairs in bed. Bella came up and started...she jumped up on the bed and kinda got in my face a little bit and woke me up," Mathews said, "I could see the smoke. It wasn`t thick thick in the room but it was thick enough so I grabbed her and the other dog and opened up the window and came out on the roof there and started hollering."
