    Default Sad Sad News

    Just received an e-mail of new break concerning Planhaven Kennels (newfoundlands) in Berrima. Last Tuesday a horrendous fire broke out at the kennels, and one Shih-Tzu as well as a Newfie died in the fire. All others were pulled out safely.

    This is very sad news, even more so for me as this is the kennels where my Inca's mum and my future-to-be Wolfgang's mum is from.

    So sad, but so grateful that all the other dogs were saved and no ppl were killed.

    Oh god that is horrible!!
    We had a fire scare here and we had to organise everyone into the dog trailer and cars. Its not a fun thing to consider losing you kids.

    Breeding, Showing, Training and general crazy making!!!
    If you seek understanding listen to the music, not the song.

    No Ashaari, it's not. I've never experienced it, and God willing, I never will!

    Can only imagine what it would have been like for them. They only had 16 dogs in the kennels at the time, thank goodness, and it appears the Shih-Tzu was in the 'presedential suite' which was near where the fire started. The newfie who died ran back into the blaze, the poor soul.
    Seems it was an electrical fault that started it.
    Just so glad an assistant gave the alarm and the rural fire brigade were able to get it contained.

    My thoughts are with them, what an awful time they must be going through.

    Thank you all. When I think about it further, I guess I feel grateful that things were acted on so promptly. Without quick thinking and fast response, it could have been so much worse than the loss of two.
