Dog Bite Saved Owner's Life

Usually dog owners frown upon dog biting people, but in this case, the dog bite may very well have saved his owner's life:

Kiko apparently sensed an infection festering in his master's right big toe -- and chewed most of it off after Douthett passed out in a drunken stupor.

A trip to the hospital confirmed Douthett's digit required amputation, and Kiko is being heralded by his owner for helping him realize he has been suffering from Type 2 diabetes.

So this drunken slob who doesn't have the sense to know that his toe is infected and probably gangrenous passes out and his dog eats the dead meat..and now both are celebrities. Is America a great place or what?
