Her Dog Saved Her Life
In 1998, Drew and her then-boyfriend, Tom Green, were woken up in the middle of the night by her adopted yellow lab, Flossie — a fire had started in their LA home, and Drew's dog "barked and literally banged on the bedroom door" in an effort to wake them up. After calling 911 and escaping from the home, Drew told a group of waiting reporters, "Thank God for Flossie!"
Flossie died in 2010 at the age of 16, and to mourn her "first girl," Drew traveled to India and scattered some of the dog's ashes at Gandhi’s home in New Delhi, near a Buddhist monastery in the Himalayas, and next to the Ganges River. Drew has called her love for Flossie "one of the best gifts" she's ever known.
