My sister, Janet, was taking her dog Toby for a walk with her partner. There was a fallen tree burning and her partner went over to investigate – followed by Toby. Toby was wearing his dog coat. Before she could call him away, a gust of wind stirred the embers and burning sparks blew into the air, some of them landing on Toby’s coat.
Here is the damage done to his coat. Fortunately the coat extinguished the sparks and Toby wasn’t harmed. He now has 2 new coats of the same brand.
