Fur Baby Friday: Thankful

This Fur Baby Friday is a little different than usual...

I spent most of Wednesday crying and hugging Maisy. Don't worry, she's fine. But I found out that someone I know back home had their house burn down Tuesday night, and he also lost his dog in it, who saved Scott's life.

Duncan the boxer woke Scott up in the middle of the night, barking and pawing at him because the house was on fire. So Scott grabbed his collar and ran out of the house. But once he got outside, he realized Duncan had gotten out of his collar and was still in the house. Scott tried to go back in but it was too hot, and afterwards, they found Duncan curled up on the bed.

When I heard this story, I just lost it. I always cry when I hear sad animal stories, but this one just got to me. Of course, because I know Scott, I feel absolutely terrible for him. And then because Duncan was a boxer, I started imagining how I would feel if that happened with Maisy. So this resulted in me sobbing for hours. My mom got a hysterical phone call where she probably thought I was dying. 

I'm not really sure what the point of this post is. One is to honor Duncan, who is truly a hero. After imagining myself in Scott's situation, I hugged on my family all day and made sure that they knew how much I loved them. So I guess I'm writing this to say, hug on the people you love today. Tell them how thankful you are for them. 

Articles about the fire: here, here, and here.

Oh my gosh, that is so sad. I'm hugging my Weimaraner right now! Lacy is going to get lots and lots of love and snuggles for the rest of the day (at least!)
I hope you have a happy weekend!

Oh my gosh! This is the saddest story. I just hugged my dog and cried for like 10 minutes. (I also tightened up her collar!)

That's so sad, but it definitely says a lot about how much our pets love us. Amazing :)

Oh my gosh, Julie! You know him?! I read an article about this on Wednesday and I started crying, too. Duncan really is a hero. Ugh. Now I'm tearing up again...

I'm so sorry for Scott, but he's incredibly lucky to have had Duncan! At the very least, it's nice to step back after hearing something as horrible as this and be grateful for everyone (pups included) in your life!

I read an article about them a few days ago, and it definitely made me cry. I felt the exact same way, and even let Olive sleep in our bed that night. We are so blessed to have animals who love us so much, and I am so sorry that your friend lost such a valuable member of his family.

I will definitely be giving Olive a few more hugs tonight after reading this.

Hope you have a sweet weekend with your pup!

This is both extraordinary and heartbreaking. What a blessing Duncan was. I will be sure to say a little prayer for both Scott and Duncan tonight.

My husband told me this and I cried. It makes me SOOOOO sad to know that the dog was probably scared and hurting. : (
