Emergency 911

I got a frantic call from Gadget Boy today telling me that there had been a dogtastrophe at my house. Apparently Milo (the Bichon) and Bailey (the Spaniel) had FALLEN DOWN A SINKHOLE UNDER THE SHED and could not get out. Bailey was barking...Milo was uncharacteristically silent--we are not sure how long he had been there. Gadget boy managed to tear off the shed door and then attempted to use a circular saw IN THE POURNING RAIN to cut a hole in the shed floor and rescue the dogs. This wasn't working and they decided the situation was dire enough to call the Fire Department---(I think they have been watching too many episodes of Leave it to Beaver). Anyway, Animal Control was dispatched to the scene. Or, as Gadget Boy explained:
"They sent a $%#!*ing guy with gloves". In the end, Gadget Boy and Tom were able to save the dogs through the hole they made in the floor. It is a good thing Jack didn't follow them....He certainly would have blocked the hole. I will post pictures of the damage tomorrow.

Okay I will spill it. We went to Mikes to eat and Flamingo Farmicist was in her own little world. She looked like she could fall asleep anytime. Though she was awake enough to take the scenic route home. I think we saw the whole northside. Thanks for the tour ff.

I am so sorry for your troubles Misha. It is just so good that your boy was there to save the dogs.
I will pray that all will return to normal soon.
I am glad you have your friends to help you throught this.

I think the power of prayer is a wonderful thing. I am so glad that ff recognizes it. Things will get better my friends, I just know it.

You, gadget boy, girl on phone, Tom and the dogs will get through this. Thank goodness for the fire dept.

Misha---after what you have been though, you have my permission to get on your scotter w your frinds and go have one drink. You really need it. Buy the gadget boy, TOm and girl on phone and dogs a treat too. Or maybe CP and ff could make them a doggie treat.

Godd luck with everything,

Faith
