Jerry Douthett, the diabetic man whose terrier, Kiko, chewed off his infected toe while he lay in a drunken stupor, told the Grand Rapids Press that Kiko often sniffed his foot. [...]That's a pic of Kiko without the "blood moustache" (Douthett's words). The variety of ways that various online news-disseminating (not so much news-gathering any more) headlined this event is interesting.
His toe was infected to the bone, and surgeons amputated what was left of the digit.
Douthett credits his dog with saving his life.
