Below) In August, 2009, Sadie the chihuahua woke her owner in time to save two men and two cats from a house fire. A third cat, and a parakeet, weren't saved. Oklahoma home-owner Jackie Privett, 31, was sound asleep on the couch when Sadie began fervantly licking his face. "Sadie's my hero," said Privett, half naked in the street in front of a completely destroyed home.
