Dog Strangled by Phone Cord Saves His Own Life by Dialing Emergency Number

Wow wonders shall never end George, a 2-year-old Basset Hound from South Heindley, West Yorkshire, U.K., was strangled by a phone cord — and miraculously saved his own life by calling 999, the British equivalent of 911,
George knocked over a heavy-duty, old-fashioned phone in owner Steve Brown’s home; he became tangled in the cord and wound up with it wrapped around his neck. Somehow, George — in the midst of choking — managed to dial 999 with his paw.The emergency operator heard heavy breathing and gasping on the other end and alerted the authorities, who entered the house with the help of a neighbor, Paul Walker, who had a key.
Walker saw the dog choking and ripped the cord free from the phone to save him.
He told The Sun: "Incredibly you could see where his paw print was on the phone to ring 999 — he literally saved his own life."
Lydia Brown, the daughter of George's owner, expressed equal amazement at the Basset's lifesaving feat, telling The Sun, "He's really dopey and just likes to chew socks."
George isn't sounding quite so dopey now, though.

WATCH: David Banner on Trayvon Martin Shooting Death

    Over the course of the past few weeks, the nation has been fixated on the death of Trayvon Martin.The 17years old who was shot and killed in Florida by neighborhood watchman George Zimmerman,who claims the unarmed boy looked “suspicious” and was up to no good. No weapons were found on Martin, ho only had a bag of Skittles and a bottle of iced tea on him. No charges have been filed against Zimmerman,who says he was attacked by Martin and only acted in self-defense, despite the fact that 911 operators instructed him to not follow Martin. The resulting death of another young Black man and the fact that Zimmerman has yet to be charged has evoked a firestorm of controversy and backlash. Hip-hop artist/producer and BlackEnterprise.comcontributing blogger David Banner recently stopped by the BE offices to express his frustrations with the Martin incident and the system that allows his shooter to walk free. Listen below to hear Banner’s passionate perspective on the life and death of Trayvon Martin and what changes need to be made.

Karen Igho host’s former BBA Housemates in Amplified Birthday Party

2011 winner of Big Brother Africa’s Amplified Edition, Karen Igho is arguably one of the most controversial but loveable Nigerian celeb on the scene. A 2011 edition of COMPLETEFASHION magazine describes her as ‘crazy, loud and loveable’ – How so? Today, I take you on a ‘retrospect’ journey of the girl Karen, whom most of us never knew when she was living with her grandmother; then we take a look at the African-famous ‘Karenified’ who took our attention on the BigBrother Africa reality TV show and what the journey of fame had been for her thus far.

The story of a Nigerian
Karen Igho, a native of Kokori (Urobo tribe in Nigeria), Delta State, was born in Jos, Plateau State. Nigeria.  The first of ten (10) kids, Karen’s mom was separated from her biological father when Karen was 2 years old. Although Karen says her mother is her role model, she grew up living with her grandmother in the village at Delta State. She had her primary school education at Star Tribe Primary School, and Township Primary School, both in Delta State. She later moved back to the place of her birth for her high school education at Federal Government College Hopeshe, Jos, Nigeria.
Little girl Karen would later on meet her biological father for the first time when she turned 14 years in age. However, their time together was short-lived because the father died of a virus infection few days after their reunion.
After her secondary school education, Karen was able to travel out of Nigeria to attend Southwark College, London where she studied Theatre Arts, during which time she often volunteered and worked with various charity causes and organizations in the UK, including orphanages, dumb and deaf kids among others. By 2008, Karen was back in Nigeria, making a debut appearance on the 2008 edition of a reality TV show tagged the Next Movie Star. She was also lead video vixen in 2Shotz/Timaya ‘Incase U never know’; coupled with featuring as the lingerie model in Soundcity Blast Magazine. These experience inspired courage in Karen, as she would later return to the UK to explore opportunities in modeling and acting. Later on, Karen took a feature acting role on the popular Yoruba Nollywood movie ‘Omo Ghetto Part 2’ as she continues to harness her acting talent and skill.

The ‘Karen’ we know… A dream we all seek!
In 2011, Karen Igho came to the fore by participating in the extra-ordinary edition of BigBrother Africa, Amplified Edition, having being prompted by her notable friend and ‘unusual African VJ’ Denrele Edun. In the BBA House, Karen became popular as the ‘no-nonsense’ lady with active participation in the house tasks and activities.
She apparently became the reason millions of viewers across Africa stay glued to their TV set in anticipation of the ‘Karenified’ drama on the 2011 edition of the BBA.
While in the house, she was good friends with Baby P and Mumbai and was romantically linked with Zeus. She also used her presence on the global screen reality TV show to serve as an ambassador of peace through the ‘we JOS want Peace’ campaign – as a way to raise awareness and help restore peace in Jos town, Nigeria. For Karen, the game at the BBA was about being as real as ‘REAL’ could be; in her own words,  “I hate being a hypocrite, besides if you go into the House with a strategy Africa will definitely discover that you are not real and vote you out”.
This approach apparently worked for her, judging that she went on to become a winner on the Big Brother Amplified edition reality show, (BBA 2011), bringing her fame, huge money(as she came back to Nigeria with the coveted prize of $200,000), glitz and glamour.  Some people have gone on to describe with envy that Karen’s winning is like stumbling upon a ‘pot of gold’; however you see it, don’t we all desire some pure luck in life? Karen’s evolution reminds us all that the possibilities in life are not limited, not even when we are limited by our circumstances.

‘Karenified’ from AmplifiedDon’t we just love her!
Since the curtains drew on the BigBrother Africa Amplified Edition on the 31st of July, 2011, Karen has continued to be stay relevant on the entertainment scene while engaging in news worthy activities such as; featuring on the cover of top fashion, lifestyle and entertainment magazines, meeting and relating with national and international dignitaries such as Delta State’s Governor Uduaghan, Former military president, IBB, Ex-prime minister, UK, Mr. Gordon Brown. Karen played anchor and host to several shows and events in 2011 such as Delta@20, Dynamix Awards, Safari awards, Calabar, City People Amplified Party, Facebook Unplugged in Warri, Miss Abuja 2011, the launch of Ibadan GoTV, October 2011, Face of Edo, Benin, DSTV Multi-choice 2011 end of the year party, and in recent times the Face of Selara 2012, SAY NO TO CRIME event at the ikoyi prisons in Lagos and many others.
Her affable personality makes her endearing to the entertainment industry. Karen has received some special awards to her credit such as the Dynamix TV personality of the year Award, 2011 and the Youth Award, 2011 amidst others. She has co-presented on episodes of the TV show, Jara with Uti; and also featured in musical videos including, Hakeem the dream’s, Scooby doo and Orezi’s booty bounce.
Karen Igho had also being involved in contributing to a variety of philanthropic and charity activity including partnering with Breast Cancer Prevention initiatives, HIV intervention projects and Children Orphanages.
Today, Karen Igho continues to reinforce her presence in the entertainments, taking roles in Nollywood movies, modeling for fashion events while pushing the frontiers in fashion and charitable initiatives. Karen would have anyone that cares to listen know, ‘if she can make it, so can they’. In her own words, she says ‘Don’t judge a book by its cover, life is too short to be unhappy and it is what it is at the end of the day’ – so is Karen’s New Phase!
