Hero Dog Gets Medal for Sniffing Out Potential Trouble
Remember Becky, the gas-smelling dog in Wind Point? She was honored with a certificate and a medal from the village president.
Len Lamberg's dog, Becky, was honored with a certificate and a medal from Wind Point Village President Bill Bensman for sniffing out potential trouble.
Back in January, Lamberg was out with Becky - a deaf, mixed breed dog whom Lamberg rescued years ago - for their evening walk when she started worrying at something on the street. When Lamberg followed her over, he smelled what she did; a natural gas leak.
While homes and residents weren't in any danger, WE Energies got the leak repaired and credited Becky's nose for the alert.
"I think she's a hero," Lamberg said. "She might be deaf, but her nose works just fine."
