Heroic dog digs tunnel through snow, rescues owners

Not only is this story touching, but the 81 year old woman sounds like a livewire!

http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,234599,00.html

There's also a video clip of the story up on CNN.com . . . lovely dog!

This couple sounds so deserving, too . . . The guy is a WWII veteran and the he and his wife run a little wildlife sanctuary off their social security checks.
