Santa Rosa, California - If you love pets, and you love the Wheel of Fortune, the week of February 18 is the time for you to watch. This is the week that the game show's theme is "Pet Lovers Week," when hosts Pat Sajak and Vanna White salute pets and the people who love them.

We are thrilled that Canine Companions Hearing Dog, and Hero Dog Finalist, Tatiana II, and her facilitator Cristina Saint-Blancard, will be featured in a video tribute during this special programming," said CCI President Corey Hudson. Saint-Blancard, of Plantation, Florida, lost her hearing as a teenager and was matched with Tatiana in 2011. She nominated Tatiana after she saved her life one night when Saint-Blancard was having an asthma attack and Tatiana alerted her parents that she was in distress. That night when the paramedics arrived they said that Tatiana had saved Saint-Blancard's life.
