Yep, ya reads that rights, a basset hound firestarter.... read on.....

but not me, i'm a pretty cautious basset hound & not very adventurous with these sorts of things.

it wuz my pal Sasha. she got Ninja skillz! watch out, yikes! she went countersurfing last nite on her stove while the peeples were sleeping. she TURNED ON the gas stove and burned whatever food she wuz going for & it caught fire. then the kitchen caught fire, can u believe it?

fortunately, the peeples smellt the smoke, so the fire didn't burn down the place. Everybody got out ok, tho the fireperson had to save Sasha's older basset sister. they r all staying in a hotel now.

this is one of the crrraziest basset stories i evah heard.

ps. Sasha's real-- here's a pic of us standing next to each other.

I always worried about countersurfing and the knobs on the front of the stove. It just never seemed compatible. No matter how many times we tell the hounds to stay down, they'll surf if it's worth their while. I never keep food out because of this, but Winston has decided that he likes the mail that's on the counter too. You just never know what will attract a hound.

Lesson learned...only knobs on the back part of the stove!! Luckily our (sorta) new stove doesn't have them on the front.

Yikes! I'm glad everyone is ok!
My hubby laughs it off when I get anal about not leaving things on the stove, but ya know, your story is the third time I have heard of this kind of thing happening with a countercruising basset. Scary!

and.... the story made the news... here is a link.

no mention of Sasha, just things getting mysteriously lit up as the cause of the fire, lol.

but there's a nice pic of her older sis who got rescued (actually she is only 10 yrs old). Poor older sis just had a bout of glaucoma in her right eye, which was removed recently.
