IT'S A DOG-GONE SPECTACULAR EPISODE OF "EXTREME MAKEOVER: HOME EDITION"
WHEN THE TEAM HEADS TO POCATELLO, IDAHO AND CELEBRATES A FAMILY AND
THE DOG WHO SAVED THEM FROM THEIR BURNING HOUSE
Pop Star Kylie Minogue Provides Support for Single Mom, a Fellow Breast Cancer Survivor
"Marshall-Spreier Family" -- When the 2,000 square foot home of a single mother of nine caught fire in Pocatello, Idaho, breast cancer survivor Jane Marshall and her children were awakened by Betsy, the family dog. Thanks to Betsy, everyone was able to get out safely. To celebrate the Marshall-Spreier family's enduring human spirit in the face of difficulty, Ty and the "EM:HE" design team not only built them a new house in just seven days, but also found ways for some of Betsy's dog brethren to get involved in the transformation of this music-loving family's home. While designer Paul DiMeo played piano with a full symphony orchestra, team leader Ty Pennington orchestrated ten dogs to bring down the family's devastated house, including Molly, a dog who actually operated an excavator! This episode of "Extreme Makeover: Home Edition" airs SUNDAY, NOVEMBER 7 (8:00-9:00 p.m., ET) on the ABC Television Network.
When pop star Kylie Minogue learned that she could also be a part in making the family's luck change, she was happy to do her part and performed a concert at the family's new home. Kylie had surgery five years ago for early-stage breast cancer and, as with Jane, the surgery was declared a success.
The Marshall-Spreiers and Betsy went on vacation to Key West, Florida, where Betsy went swimming for the first time and got some dog-gone right pampering of her own. Meanwhile, "Extreme Makeover: Home Edition" team leader Ty Pennington, designers Jillian Harris, Paul DiMeo and Ed Sanders, local builder Rockwell Development and community volunteers rebuilt the structure.
