When 13 year old Nick Lamb’s, dog named, Ace desperately tried to wake him he got his attention by licking his face, and Nick quickly realized something was seriously wrong. Nick is deaf, had been sound asleep, and was not wearing his cochlear implant. Nick saw the smoke from the house being on fire coming in under his door, and was fortunate to be woken up before inhaling too much of it. Thanks to Ace’s loyalty and protective instincts the two were able to get out unharmed and are now closer than ever before. No doubt this hero dog will be spoiled for the rest of his days with this family.
