In Canada, a Nova Scotia man believes his alive right now – because of his dog.

Mike Cameron says he fell asleep on the couch and woke up to his collie mix, Charlie, pawing at his chest — and the house on fire.

And that was just the beginning.

He says he began running in and out of the house frantically looking for his two cats. Then collapsed at the door; he couldn’t breathe.

Charlie and the cats are fine: Cameron’s convinced his beloved pooched also rescued the cats.

Cameron believes he’s blessed: he’s got insurance, so he can rebuild.

Besides, he says everything will be just fine — as long as he has Charlie.
