Last week I went with my friend, Gina, to pick up her possible new addition to their little family. Gina, if you remember, owns the boxer that Bella always plays with- Dallas. Gina found a 5 month old boxer puppy online that needed a new home because she was having to stay in her crate for 8 hours every day of the week (note: HORRIBLE for high energy boxers). Gina has been wanting to get another dog for a while because Dallas needs a playmate more often than just 2-3 days a week with Bella SO she decided to have a "trial" with this dog to see how she fit in with their family. I was the support group when she picked her up for the trial. Yes, Tim and I did tell Gina was insane for getting 2 boxers.
Little boxer puppy... Her name is Millie but Gina and her boyfriend Brad have since changed it to Mollie...and have SINCE officially decided to keep her and have named her Moxie. She's all white except for this brindle eye patch. Adorable! She's also a very good dog who just needed a little bit of TLC to become a little, confident boxer. I actually see similar personalities between her and Bella. They are quite the pair when they play together... Moxie is Bella's match.
Anyway, I digress.
After all the excitement from playing we meandered our way home with one tired dog who was not too keen on the idea of walking. We got home and were just kind of hanging around and we both realize that it smells like bacon. Uh huh. Weird, since neither of us eat bacon AT ALL therefore we have none in the house. So the fact that it smells like bacon is a little disconcerting and curious. We walk around the house sniffing it out. We open the master bathroom door, which is closed, and all of this smoke and fumes starts pouring out. And now it doesn't smell like bacon it smells like fire smoke. Seriously. Crazy. We both look at each other and we are just all, "WTF?" We start feeling the walls and floors for heat and nothing. But it's smokey and we're both starting to get headaches/feel a little nauseous. We go outside to see if there's smoke anywhere around that could be coming in through the skylight. Nope. We go back in and it seems worse. Eventually the fire department along with a huge engine and full crew come out to check on things. SERIOUSLY. THIS WAS OUR SATURDAY NIGHT. Awesome.
