Hug your dogs and live for today

One of our club member's house burned down last friday. They lost everything. Sadly both of their GSDs one year old male Erris and their five year old female, Diva died in the fire. I can't tell you the depth of the heartache we are feeling up here. You can PM me if you want anymore information.
Hug your dogs and remember how precious life is.

That is so sad.... I am very sorry. I would be beyond devastated, moreso about the dogs of course.

That is one of my worst fears. I live in a heavily wooded area. Lightening strikes, careless people burning leaves. Such a terrible loss for your friend.

Re: Hug your dogs and live for today

grief beyond comprehension.
my heart goes out to this family.

my brother and my sil had an explosion in their home. the gas-powered water heater was in the garage, along with the washer, dryer and dog door. two of the three dogs were in the garage where it was cooler. it was speculated that one of the dogs tipped over the lawn-mower gas can, and when the heater went on, the garage blew up. the two dogs didn't make it. this was especially devastating for them because just a short time prior to that, when they lived in their previous home, their smallest dog was killed by a coyote. the fire was the only time my sil ever saw my brother break down.

But the jar he was making did not turn out as he had hoped, so he crushed it into a lump of clay again and started over. ~ Jer. 18:4
