Wedding Guest - Dog

A dog which saved a woman's life when it found her dying of hypothermia has been invited as guest of honour at her wedding.
Zoe Christie, 21, was found with severe hypothermia in a field near Ottery St Mary, Devon, by John Richards and his boxer dog Boris.

Miss Christie, 21, who lives in nearby Newton Poppleford, was so severely ill doctors told her father he may have to formally identify her body.

Medics battled to revive her and she spent two weeks in intensive care. Now a care assistant, Miss Christie is marrying her fiance Chris, 25, in October.

She said: "John and his wife Sheila are first on the reception list when we come back to England from our wedding in Turkey.

"They will be our guests of honour - and I would love Boris to be there too."

Mr Richards said: "I had walked past Zoe but Boris found her and wouldn't come so I turned round and went back."

Believing he had found a dead body, he called the emergency services, only for a Devon and Cornwall police officer to find a slight pulse.

Her heart stopped as the helicopter flew to the Royal Devon and Exeter Hospital where she had to have her blood re-circulated.

Miss Christie's father Trevor, 40, of Yonder Street, Ottery St Mary, said: "We never thought we would see the day. She owes her life to that dog and his persistence."
