Pet Fire and Life Safety

Each year in the United States, thousands of people lose their lives to fire. Tens of thousands are injured and the financial costs can reach into the billions of dollars. Almost forgotten in these tragedies are the hundreds of thousands of family pets who suffer death or injury as well.

Cool group, but did you know Fyre and cam posted the same article almost a year apart? Hahaha. No big deal, I just thought it was funny. Looking forward to reading some great stuff.

Nice Cam. I'm glad you still have enough brain cells left to come up with a group like this.

Thanks for the invite and sorry it's taken me so long to get back on the site. I've been pretty busy doing research and with having to do some traveling with Meri to Alabama to see her Dad who's cancer has come back. But the good ews there is, he seems to be doing allot better and the outlook so far is good... besides, the ol' boy is not about to let someone else split his firewood for

I wanted to say this about our "babies" (Angel and Smokey), that if we leave the house and have to leave them at home, we close all the doors to other rooms (bathroms, bedrooms, basement) so that they are in the main liing area and/or dining/kitchen areas only, no place to "hide" if something were to happen. Both have been well trained to "NOT" chew on things that do not belong to them. We also ave "Pet Finder" window/door tags on the main floor entry doos and windows with states both dogs names and that they should be in an open area within the home(this also helps with letting "someone else" know that if they break in, their ass might get bit..!!).

Both will bark at dust just floating in the air, so it wouldn't be hard to find them at all. Most of the pets I've had to bring out after a fire were ones found under beds,in closets, behind dressers,behind the toilet, in bathtubs/showers, crawl spaces in the basement... some didn't ake it out alive, but some did. I like for owner to think about things like this and use to hold "talks" with home owners about not only their safety, but that of their pets as well. Afterall, they are family too..!!

On another note, we have taken to baking our own "doggie treats" aswith most now, one never knows where they were made, what they were made with or anything about them outside of the info on the package. So, Meri and I found some recipes online and have been baking (I have,..!) our own and the "Babies" love them. Easy to make an cost less than $4.00 to make a batch off 100 + treats at a time... I'll post the recipes I'm using alittle later, but I do stress this that others start doing the same, your pets life is well worth it..!!
