Dog honored for helping to save neighbor

Teresa Oney's dog Digger might be a bit exasperating when it comes to the habit that gave him his name, but the beagle mix was just 10 months old when he helped Oney save an elderly neighbor's life. Last winter, Digger woke his owner in the middle of the night and helped her find the 83-year-old woman, who had been lying in the snow outside for more than an hour.
