HARTLAND, Wis. (AP) - A dog that a suburban Milwaukee family credits for alerting one of its members about carbon monoxide has been honored by a dog treats maker.

The Journal Sentinel (https://bit.ly/1WPEjhW ) reports Nicole Siekert of Hartland felt lethargic Feb. 11 and decided to lie down after her young daughters went to school. The family’s dog Abby kept sticking her muzzle under Siekert’s chin as she tried to drift off.

Assuming Abby wanted to go out, Siekert got up and walked to the door, but Abby went downstairs, where a carbon monoxide detector was going off in the basement.

The maker of Milk-Bone dog treats picked Abby this month for its second annual list of “Dogs Who Changed the World.” A baseball card was made with a photo of a red bandanna-clad Abby, and she got a year’s supply of treats.
