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!
