Bentley found my mobile phone and Honour rang the ambulance ”  Mia was taken to hospital where doctors found she had bruising to her spine and back  Mia said: “Bentley has always been a really clever dog. I have taught him how to take off my socks and bring me a beer from the fridge and my mobile phone  She added: “His ancestors are mountain rescue dogs in Scotland and that shone through when I fell He refused to leave my side until the paramedics arrived.  “Honour was brilliant too For a six-year-old girl, she was so grown-up on the phone to the 999 operators.
