    Default Dog Saves Owner from the Same Fire Twice

    Anna first awoke her owner then led her to safety after she re-entered the home. Anna, an abused stray dog taken in by Idaho City resident Candace Jennings, repaid the favor on Thanksgiving Day.

    About 3:30 a.m., the blond heeler started whining, howling and nudging Jennings, who was asleep on the couch. Jennings awoke to find her home engulfed in flames.

    "Anna woke me up," Jennings said. "I had an awful headache. The place was filled with smoke."

    She ran outside, Anna behind her - but not for long.

    "I'm a janitor in town. I had everyone's keys in my backpack. I had to go back and get them."

    Jennings crawled back into the burning mobile home and Anna followed, never leaving her side.

    Jennings never made it to the keys. She was quickly overcome by smoke and became disoriented. She crawled in the wrong direction, heading toward the pantry instead of the door. Anna again came to the rescue.

    "I couldn't find the door. She pushed on me, she nudged me out the door," Jennings said.

    The dog and a barefoot, pajama-clad Jennings ran to safety under some nearby trees as the roof caved in on their home. The temperature outside was 15 degrees.

    Jennings suffered frostbite and burns to her feet. Anna and Jennings' other two dogs were not injured.

    Friday morning, Anna feasted on an omelet at Calamity Jane's Restaurant.

    "She's a hero," Jennings said.

    The mobile home is a total loss, said Grant Hawk, owner of the trailer park located off Motherlode Road. An electrical problem is the suspected cause of the fire.

    Rose Washam is not surprised Jennings risked her life to go back into her burning home to get keys belonging to other people.

    "Candace always thinks of somebody else before she thinks of herself," said Washam, who has known Jennings for more than 30 years. "She will go without so others can have. She's known as the town healer."

    Washam and other Idaho City residents are rallying around Jennings, an artist who has lived in the mountain town since 1975.

    The owner of the Idaho City Hotel offered Jennings a room. Friends are gathering clothes and other items for her. Washam drove down to Boise Friday to set up a special bank account for donations.

    "She's an inspiration to all of us," Washam said. "Everything happens for a reason. I guess we will find out the reason for this. Maybe it's time for us to give back to her."

    Just a minute, buckaroos. I refuse to suck an egg, and haven't yet died in a fire but I would like to present an opposing opinion regarding which animal species rules.

    Canadian Geese most definitely do not rule. Their intake to output ratio is far too disgustly messy, and they're noisy, bullying bastards to boot.

    If that's the case, you probably despise those pesky Canadian Pit Bulls...

    Yeah, but when a cat comes over and curls up in your lap and purrs I bet you get all mushy, too.

    Don't get me wrong. Cats are cool. The best oustide animal to have around a barn or a shop. They keep the mice and the snakes at a lower level than non cat having barns or shops. In fact we had a little burial for "Nails" last January. He was the shit. Fucker would tangle with anything that wasn't tied town and even remotely thought about fucking around with my place. But no way in hell would I have that cat, or any cat in my house. I'm funny like that. Out.

    i am the single mushiest, retardedly affectionate, sweet-natured softy in the universe when it comes to my pets or the pets of others. It's not something I let a lot of people see in person. I love my kiddoes and I'll whup the ass of anyone who looks at them crosseyed.
