Phom our lovely rottie x bordeaux lady, woke me both me and hubby last night by giving the rottie big bark < something is wrong when you hear this particular big bark. Then whilst we have the usual couple grumbling discussion, as to who will investigate, she barged into our room and barked AT us. Odd.
We both went to investigate.
Lovely orange light in my lounge, and kinetic light on walls, there's a fire, and its 20 meters from my house! We called the fire brigade, who came and put it out. Only on the arrival of trucks onto the property, did the other 2 sound an alarm. Almost as trucks arrived, the other side of the lake went up.
I love that rottie trait, that when they bark that warning bark < then there IS something to worry about. Yet another incidence, where i have trusted my dog and acted in blind faith fruitfully.
Not a single smoke detector went off in my home that is battery, as opposed to love operated.
