    Default Joey’s tail caught on fire!

    BUT HE’S OK!!!!!

    My mam saw what happened because I was out at the time but she told me as soon as I got in. he loves to get a warm by the fire (its his spot in the house) after he’s been out for a wee and he must have been warming his bum when his tail must of went on the fire but he didn’t realise. My mam could smell singeing and looked over and he was just standing there with smoke coming off his tail!!! She shouted at him to move and as she ran over he ran off and she said there were actual flames coming from his tail!!!! As he ran they must of went out but all his fur fell off in clumps!! She checked him and he was fine just a very singed tail which she had to cut. He still smells like singed fur now. Poor boy.

    Oh my... you may want to put up one of those hearth thingies... my parents had one because thier dog liked to get close and it is a 3 paneled metal "gate" that can be put so that you can't get too close to the fire.


    Here is a link to the one I just adore (but alas no fireplace yet, I have to get the house first).

    Good time to go buy a fire guard. It is very easy for their tails to catch fire because they only have to turn around in front of an open fire. jaspar once singed off some hair on a candle. Now I put out candles on the table as soon as I leave a room -- eg saying goodbye to guests after a dinner party -- as it was really scary and took a year for that part to grow back in. And I always have a fire guard before the fire. You can get them cheaply at most home stores -- B&Q etc.
