Border Collie Saves Family from Carbon Monoxide Poisoning

At their home on Thursday, Nicole Siekert and her twin daughters were sleepy and fell back asleep. That day, the family felt sick and drowsy when they woke up to get to school. Yet, Abby, their border collie would not let them sleep.

Nicole thought she had just come down with the flu. Although, just minutes later, Abby was frantically jumping on them to get them up. When Siekert went downstairs to let Abby out, she heard the carbon monoxide alarm go off.

She told WISN-TV, "It was like a flash. Everything just came together, and it made sense. We were all just kind of out of sorts when we woke up." She said Abby was nudging and pawing at her, even lifting her head with her nose.

Siekert went on to say, "She saved my life. She saved our lives." Bella, one of the twins, called Abby "Superdog."

Carbon monoxide is odorless and colorless. It is the byproduct of fuel burned in cars, small engines, stoves, fireplaces or furnaces. It can kill humans and animals in minutes. Over 400 Americans die of carbon monoxide poisoning each year. In addition, over 4,000 are hospitalized with symptoms.
