In September of 2010 we saved Sookie Banana (then Shelly) from a puppy mill in Missouri. This summer, Sookie Banana became a hero in her own right!
Sookie Banana’s family had a friend visit from California this summer. When the friend woke up one night to use the restroom, she started to have a full-blown seizure. Sookie Banana was sleeping on the bed with her family when this started. When Banana started barking uncontrollably and running back and forth from the bathroom to the bedroom, her mom knew she needed to find out what was happening. She followed Banana cautiously into the bathroom and found her friend seizing. She immediately called paramedics who took her friend to the hospital and saved her life.
If Sookie Banana had not been so persistent, this story could have ended in tragedy. Sometimes we as humans can rescue dogs, but dogs like Sookie Banana prove that dogs can rescue us as well!
