Nina, our hero

Our Nina is a hero, she saved me and our home form a kitchen fire last November... you see, I suffer from a debilitating illness and that particular day was a terrible one for me, I was making my way upstairs to take my meds and a nap, but she wouldn't move (she follows me everywhere I go), so, I made it back to find her sitting by the kitchen entrance crying as if in pain, as soon as I got there, she grabbed my hand and started pulling me towards the back door... I turned to look in the direction she was looking at ... the stove was in flames!....
