A small dog never reveals his tricks

I just wanted to let everyone know that dogs may not have opposable thumbs but apparently, they can set a house on fire Puppy Buster sets his house on fire! “Playful puppy Buster caused mayhem when he started a house fire in Harold Hill – and then a fire engine dashing to the scene crashed…The one-year-old dog is believed to have started the fire by turning on one of the electric cooker rings with his paw when left home alone last Friday, January 5.” This is why you should always check the stove several times a day to make sure it’s turned off, even if you haven’t been cooking and never use your stove. If it’s the middle of the night, you should check it at least three times in succession to be sure your small dog hasn’t turned it on.

    five times. you should check the stove five time in succession, particularly at night. even if it doesn’t save your house from burning down, it will prevent children from starving. a word to the wise + neurotic.

    Now that I think about it, I bet that poor dog Buster didn’t want children to starve either. Clearly he was checking the stove and was interrupted, causing the house to burn down.

    I so agree SD! Maybe Buster has ocd and was checking the stove, checking the stove, checking the stove. He was also probably trying to put the fire out with the tea towels.

    I agree with Joan! If I were a small dog, I would use the tea towels!!!
