Brave Bella proves old adage - a dog is man's best friend 

A dog is man's best friend. You will find no argument with that claim from the Spence family in Dundonald, whose lives were saved by their family pet. Bella, the Cavalier King Charles Spaniel, alerted the family by her barking when a fire broke out in their home early yesterday morning. The consequences don't bear thinking about had the dog not raised the alarm and allowed the family to barricade themselves into an upstairs room until they were rescued by the Fire Service.
