I am too glad that Nick & dogs are safe! We had a house fire two years ago due to the landlord messing with the furnace. My husband came home from the store in time to save two cats, but we lost three others, a free roaming bunny, and a beautiful aquarium. Luckily we had renters insurance, but it's a very painful & tedious process.
Also, my husband now suffers from breathing problems due to all the smoke he inhaled. I hope Nick doesn't suffer the same effects.
Now things are beautiful and I imagine the same will be true for them in time. Blessings their way!
