(September 26, 2006)—An Oklahoma man owes his life to his dog, whose persistence allowed him to escape from his burning home.
Charles Threlkeld of fell asleep with a candle still burning in his home.
His dog Meadow jumped on his bed and tugged on him until he woke up.
He and the dog escaped, but little except for a few pictures could be salvaged.
Threlkeld was still in ICU Tuesday.
Thankful relatives said they were hoping to find someone with a kennel to take care of the dog until Threlkeld is released from the hospital.
