RE: [IP] Miniature dachshund gnaws off diabetic owner's toe

Wow... I thought I was the only one! I have a cat that does relatively the
same thing (without the tongue in nose and mouth). When I'm asleep and low,
he'll bite my cheeks to wake me up. He's done it about 5 times in the past 8
years. I live alone, and I'm fairly convinced that without him, I might not be
here! The bizarre thing is that it's nothing he's been trained to do, he just
picked it up by being with me. Amazing animals!

I also had a horse when I was growing up that did somewhat of the same thing.
If I was in her stall, she'd become really pushy if I was low. If I was riding
her, she'd basically stop and protect me until I got a juice box from someone
on the rail.
