Shotzie sprang to action. “She ran back in the bedroom, jumped up on the bed, slid across her comforter, pounced on [my mom’s] head and let out the biggest roar to wake her up,” Miller said. “She said, ‘Shotzie roared like a mountain lion.’ She said it was an extremely loud and deep growl to get her up and get moving.”
Shotzie had never made a sound like this before, and Tammy immediately realized something was wrong. When Tammy went into the living room, she found Kirk lying on the floor.
“She immediately started CPR on him, but couldn’t get a response from him,” Miller said. “She got the firefighters there, and they had to shock him three times, and they finally got a heartbeat from him.”
