Roy’s on top of safety watch.
We were really lucky, we all lived. We had help right away. We had somewhere to go with someone who cares about us enough to let 3 big smelly dogs and a crazy person into their home. So many people have stepped in to make this easy for us.
I need to write a thank you for all of you and Micah most of all who just took care of everything for me. Thank you Micah.
We learned we have a lot of friends and a community that reaches all over the world. People are good. I can’t thank you all enough for the donations, the help, the love, the laughs and your friendship.
I won’t lie I was a pretty big baby about the whole losing my home thing. I’m also pretty mad at the selfish dumbos whose negligence caused the fire. I loved my house.
But I hate being rigid and stuck about stuff so Im going to rock change instead.
True was totally a rock the day of the fire but since then he has been a little upset and clingy. He had a panic attack at the park and curled up in a ball. Roosevelt has been incredibly stressed out, pacing & panting for hours. Roy surprised me. He’s been solid. Quiet, calm staying out of the way waiting for fun to fit into the schedule. I took them all back to the house and True & Roosevelt got onto one of their old now destroyed beds and wouldn’t get off, Roy went to the front door and walked out. He said lets move on, what’s next.
He’s also gone feral.
Some items survived the fire, the fire-axes, the water damage & the burglars but I think perhaps not the smoke. We pulled anything that seemed salvageable out & rented a storage space. I think the tables will be ok but this crate has been washed 10x, used natures miracle, febreeze, activated charcoal and it still smells AWFUL. Really the smoke smell is so disgusting I almost threw up just having it in the car 10 days after the fire. Change is good, so is different, smoke damage is gross.
Roy has become even cooler. It also seems like he hates my feet less then before the fire.
True does not want to be away from me at all right now.
