The service dog who threw himself into the path of an oncoming mini-bus to shield his blind owner has come out of surgery and is on the mend.  A staffer at Middlebranch Veterinary in Southeast on Tuesday said the dog — who witnesses at the scene called Bigo but who is actually called “Figo,” the staffer said — is “on the mend and doing extremely well.”  The golden retriever’s right front leg is in a splint, said the staffer, who declined to give her name.
