    Default Even a dog knows to do the right thing..

    from a Facebook posting I received..

    A very courageous little dog saved all her babies during a fire in Temuco, Chile, by bringing them one by one from a burning house to the steps of the firefighters' truck. Bravo little one!



    It's too bad some people would not do the same for their fellow man...

    It is genetically programmed in most mammals to protect at all costs..your children. Bear, deer, dogs, go down the list..It stops at humans. I think its primarily because animals' brains work on a much simpler scale..they don't have the things that we do, drugs, sex, alcohol, electronic devices that fufill us more then the safety,well-being and existence of our own children. It's a sad world we live in.

    But that picture is pretty cool though, it's why I love dogs..wayyyyy more then cats.

    I love dogs for reasons like this

    Beautiful story...but was the dog sure the home wasn't already evacuated? Were procedures followed? What kind of cowboy kamikaze goes into a burning structure like that?

    Fire couldn't have been that bad, dog doesn't even looks like its been in a fire. Scarlet the cat, she saved her kittens while suffering severe burns, they were so bad her eyes were burnt shut and she kept going until she got all 5. Now that's something! So why is it that you love dogs wayyyyy more?

    We used to stow gear in compartments that would be empty during a fire.

    How about both? I have 2 dogs and dozens of barn cats. Honestly, the cats are of more value to me than the dogs. I haven't had a mouse in my house in over a decade because they never make it to the house. I used to have a 72 hole golf course made by gophers, they are all gone. The dogs are nothing more than an early warning system here...

    About 8 months ago I walked out the front door to find a golden retriever on my front lawn, muddy, exhausted, and hungry. Being skeptical of strays out here in the sticks, I approached with caution and my .40cal. This dog hopped up and looked at me with "please help" in her eyes. So I took her around the back to my shop and after a trip to the vet for a checkup and scan for a chip, then a trip to the SPCA to see if she was lost, I now have the best yard dog I've had in a really long time.

    The place is rid of gophers, squirrels and any baby bird that hits the ground gets eaten too. Now when I say eaten I mean killed, rolled in, then completely consumed. That includes heads, feet, guts, everything. This dog probably had been on the run for a while and got tired of it.

    I have that problem too..except with a black bear. I put out my wife's apple crumb cake thing and ever since weekly he comes and pays us a visit..I go out and talk to him, I'm gonna miss living in the woods.

    How come the bigger a dog is, the more he thinks he's a lap dog?

    Even at an all hands we would still have stuff in the cabinets. Part of the all hazard outlook. I don't need much of the swift water gear at a structure fire.

    Anyways, if the Dog made the rescue, does that mean LA Fire is going to get the dog fired for making the rescue without PPE?

    And CATS are wonderful As long as you prepare them properly. The white sauce must be perfect, and use new potatoes.
