From too much sun and Nazis
Sex, meth, and death fetishes
Both of them have got these

SOMEWHERE IN THE WORLD - A 17-pound beagle is more than man's best friend. She's a lifesaver. The heroic pup was in the capital on Monday to receive an award for biting onto her owner’s cell phone to call emergency after the diabetic man had a seizure and collapsed.
"There is no doubt in my mind that I'd be dead if I didn't have her," said the man, 34, whose blood sugar had dropped dangerously low. The dog had been trained to summon help in just those circumstances.
The man first heard about service dogs while he was working as a flight attendant after befriending a frequent passenger who taught dogs to help diabetic patients. Using their keen sense of smell, the animals can detect abnormalities in a person's blood-sugar levels.
The dog periodically licks her owner’s nose to take her own reading of his blood-sugar level. If something seems off to her, she will paw and whine at him.
"Every time she paws at me like that I grab my meter and test myself," he said. "She's never been wrong."
