Life is sweet thanks to Honey!

A dog who saved the life of her owner is being celebrated by London Ambulance Service on Love Your Pet Day. Honey, a red cocker spaniel, saw Derek James collapse at his home in Sutton. The 57-year-old was in cardiac arrest – his heart had stopped beating. The dog raced to alert Derek’s wife Helene, who was walking out the door. The mother of two said: “I had just gone to the garden to switch the sprinkler off before going out shopping when Honey appeared screaming and making a horrible noise. "She jumped up and ran back in the house. I went back in to tell Derek to look at the stupid dog when I found him collapsed. I had my purse in my hand and was heading out. It was only the dog running out that stopped me.”
