    Wink OY Chihuahua

    NORTH FORT MYERS, Fla. (AP) - Monica Hayes lost virtually
    everything she owned in a weekend fire that tore through her rented
    mobile home. But if it wasn't for her dog, Hayes could have lost
    even more.
    Sassy, a 3-year-old Chihuahua, managed to rouse Hayes from a
    deep sleep early Saturday morning. Hayes said she opened her
    bedroom door and discovered flames and ske racing through the
    "I wouldn't be alive today if not for my Chihuahua," said
    Hayes, 36, who was alone inside the home. "I lost everything I
    have except her."
    Hayes' children, ages 10 and 11, were at their father's home
    when the fire broke out, she said.
    The North Fort Myers Fire Department determined the fire was
    accidental, possibly caused by a burner on the electric stove being
    left on. Hayes said she can't figure out how that would have
    happened, because she only uses a microwave when she cooks.
    Hayes does not have renters' insurance and only receives $545 in
    monthly disability income. She's not sure where her next home is,
    but she knows that Sassy is coming with her.
    "I'd live on the streets before I'd leave my dog behind. ...
    I'll never yell at her again for barking," Hayes said.

    Sounds like a fire we had a couple years back. The family pit bull woke up a girl as her bedroom caught on fire. House at the time had only one exit, through the bedroom that was on fire.
