Hero Dog Gets Award from Governor of Washington

You may have heard about Tillie the dog. She and her basset hound friend, Phoebe, went missing in in Washington state in mid-September. A week later a citizen telephoned to say that a dog matching Tillie’s description had been coming to their property every day, then running back into a ravine. Following that lead, the searchers found Tillie standing guard over a cistern. Phoebe had fallen into it, and couldn’t get out. Tillie had stayed with her, leaving only to try to alert the neighbors, which she finally did.

Yesterday, Tillie received the Washintonian of the Day Award from Governor Jay Inslee. Here she is, along with Phoebe, being congratulated for her heroism.
