Most pet owners would be irate if their dog bit off one of their toes, but Jerry Douthett, of Rockford, Mich., is nothing but grateful: this canine feat may have saved his life.

Douthett was alerted to the seriousness of a bone infection in his foot, resulting from previously undiagnosed Type II diabetes, when his terrier Kiko bit off his big toe while he was passed out drunk, according to The Grand Rapids Press.

"Jerry had had all these Margaritas, so I just let him sleep," his wife, Rosee, a registered nurse told the Michigan paper. "But then I heard these screams coming from the bedroom, and he was yelling, 'My toe's gone, my toe's gone!'"

Rumor has it that the administration is in negotiation with Kilo to head up the one of the new Health Care bureaucracies that are looking into ways to help defray the high cost of medical procedures . :shock:

Your comment is both terribly sad and horrifically funny.

At the same time.

On a more serious note, I would bet the docs noticed the bone infection upon attempting to repair the damage.

Maggots.

They are the only animal that can properly and without causing harm remove rotting flesh from your body.

I have read stories like this in the past and guess that dogs can smell the infection and will eat it.

The dog is a hero, and deserves an award....

How about some lady fingers?
