2015 Hall of Fame: Dr. Charles LeMaistre

As a 10-year-old Charles LeMaistre suffered a ruptured appendix while wandering in the woods with his German shepherd, Inga. “I was lying on the ground, and Inga took off and left me alone,” he said. “She went to my home, got two of my brothers who carried me back, and I was operated on immediately. It was a lesson that I reflected on many times because there was some reason why I survived that,” he said.
