    Well done, Ziva!

    Many years ago, I was owner to the sweetest Labrador on earth. However, one night, I was boiling chestnuts on the stove. Meanwhile, I curled up on the sofa ---and fell asleep. No smoke detector. Well, I woke up to an apt. filled with smoke and my faithful Lab pushed into the furthest corner in the back of the apt., trying to avoid all the smoke. Not exactly Lassie!

    I have a sense that Mateo would be nudging, pushing and crawling all over me (he's not a barker) if that situation had happened now --- he is constantly watchful and aware of our surroundings. One can only hope that if I'm that dumb to leave something burning on the stove my dog would take notice and do something!

    NYDDB that is scary and your poor lab. I have no doubt that Mateo would alert to it. I think it is part of the Mastiff's make up, then add on top of it when they have a close bond with their human. It is part of who they are and IMO one of the reasons we bond so deeply with them.

    It was very scary! In the back of my mind all I could think about is I have to get this fire out. It would not have been a good experience if we would have had to call out the FD, with 2 fila's. LOL

    It's a little late in this thread but if anyone else reads this....Please get a fire extinguisher! It made all the difference in the world. Plus, make sure you know how to release the safety devices on it quickly. While I was messing with the fire extinguisher, Debra threw the dogs water on the fire, didn't do much to it. One blast from the extinguisher and it was out.

    Also, trust your dog! If they are acting funny, get up and investigate!

    We have a standard kitchen fire extingsisher, but we also have several of these: First Alert AF400 Tundra Fire Extinguisher Aerosol Spray - Amazon.com around the house too. And I can tell you from personal experience that they work just fine on small fires and are much easier to manage in a hurry.

    thank God everyone is good!!!way to go Ziva!!! I had a fire years ago and only for my 2 Filas(Icca and Belly)did I get up.My 2 Eng. Springers were as close to my woodstove as they could get sleeping and the wall behind the stove was engulfed!!by the time my girls woke me the house was full of smoke and I had to crawl on my hands and knees to get the fire extinguisher,to find that it did not work!!!I called the fire dept.dispatch and it was a joy for them to come and not only put out my fire but avoid 2 Filas,3 Dogos and my now awake Eng.Springers!!who all were attempting to kill the bad guys!!!LOL!!!
