Paula Godwin praised her dog Todd as a hero for leaping between her and a lunging snake while they were on a hike recently in Arizona.

The mostly healed Todd got quite the honor at an Arizona Diamondbacks pre-game ceremony.

The six-month-old pup word a Diamondbacks jersey during the "dog days of summer" game.

The irony wasn't lost on his owner.
"I think it's kind of ironic the Diamondbacks are honoring him, since a diamondback bit him."

While Todd did not throw out the first pitch, his owner says that's okay he'd probably be a better fetcher anyway.
