Please take a moment to visit Benny and Lily (the above photo appears on their blog) who have posted about a terrible tragedy that occurred over the weekend in the Kissa Bull blog family. I've linked it because the blog includes information on how you can help.

In short, Sandra had a house fire that took the lives of five of her sweet, loving dogs, including Shelby, a badly abused dog that had been under her care for about two years. The only good news is that Sandra, her mother, and her child escaped the fire without physical injury.

Sandra is posting when she can at Kissa Bull. It would comfort her to know how many bloggers are thinking of her and her family at this very difficult time.

My heart breaks for her...

So very tragic--though thank God the folks are all right. I had followed Shelby's progress and felt so happy for her new, loving home and good care. Please keep us posted, Pat!

Yes, we have visited Sandra.We are thinking of her all the time. I can't think of many things worse than losing all your dogs like that.
It is completely heartbreaking.
