A toy poodle saves a life thousands of feet in the air.


Britt Grogan and her toy poodle were on a flight from Trenton, New Jersey, to West Palm Beach, Florida, when Britt had a mid-air scare. Britt has a rare form of diabetes. She has an insulin pump, and her five-pound dog Ruxx is her other layer of security. He’s a service dog, and when he sensed Britt’s sugar was dropping he started aggressively licking and digging in her lap. Britt says she was able to ask for help and the flight attendant and a nurse sat with her and gave her orange juice. Britt was disoriented, but received the help she needed thanks to her savior and sidekick.
