Dogs that bite are not ordinarily lavished with praise, but Jerry Douthett's little dog Kiko is being hailed as a lifesaver.

Kiko apparently sensed an infection festering in his master's right big toe -- and chewed most of it off after Douthett passed out in a drunken stupor.

Some people will do anything for their 15 minutes of fame, even being passed out in a drunken stupor and having your toe chewed off by a dog does not ring the dumbass bell in his brain hard enough to avoid the media!

Crime was afoot but where was McGruff the crime dog? He could have nailed this pooch. Has McGruff soled out? Is he refusing to toe the line? I know it sounds corny but that's a callus thing to do for this arch crime fighter.

The Rockford man's strange odyssey began several months ago when he started picking at what he thought was a small sliver on the bottom of his toe. He used a knife to cut skin away from the affected area, but it worsened, swelling so much he had to eschew shoes and resort to loose-fitting sandals.

It probably also wouldn't startle Linda Floyd, a 56-year-old diabetic from Illinois, who, two years ago, awakened to discover her miniature dachshund, Roscoe, had gnawed off her right big toe.

In Floyd's case, the dog was euthanized, something Douthett initially pursued with animal control officials. He reversed the decision when others pointed out the obvious.
Everything about this story was weird. And gross. Just bizarre.
