This past Tuesday was average by most accounts.
It was so average, we were having tacos for dinner at my house.
We are divided on which of us prefers hard shells and which prefers soft.
After twenty-two years of cooking dinners for my family, I just want whatever is easiest.
So, I told my daughter to heat the hard taco shells in the toaster oven while I worked on everything else.
That worked out well for a while, until my younger kids wanted someone to read a story to them and my daughter volunteered.
That’s right - the same daughter that was heating the taco shells, took off to read a story to the little kids.
A few minutes later, I started to smell smoke.
A taco shell had produced a tiny little flame.
I called for help as I unplugged the toaster oven and began to put out the fire.
Older kids ushered the younger kids and the dogs to safety as my husband and I worked to make sure that the fire had been completely distinguished and then tried to rid the house of smoke.
It’s crazy how fast a fire goes up.
As anyone who has had a dog with behavior problems likely knows, a dog’s behavior can be a lot like a smoldering fire.
If you don’t stop the problem when it’s small, it can quickly get out of control.
When an owner brings us a dog that has recently begun a nuisance behavior, we can often help solve the issue relatively quickly.
If the dog has been given long enough to allow their behavior to become a habit, then it becomes far more difficult to deal with the problem.
Instead of a small fire inside of a toaster oven, we now have a raging house fire.
It’s not that a house fire cannot be extinguished, it is just that it is going to take quite a bit more time and effort.
We can help you with whatever size problem you have, from a little smoke to a full on blaze, but the sooner you come to us the easier the issue will be to manage.
