Who is the Guardian?
Ten years ago, when Heidi was only two years old, the two were out on their acreage clearing brush. Doug created a small brush fire to dispose of branches and brush that he was clearing from the property. He reached over and placed a large log on top of the fire in order to weigh it down so it would not fall or blow over. As he placed the log onto the fire, the sleeve of his flannel shirt caught on fire.
Heidi immediately started barking uncontrollably which gained Doug's attention. Doug realized the shirt was on fire, and immediately started to take the shirt off. He got the shirt off his body and arms. As he tried to pull his hands out of the sleeves to free himself completely, the cuffs of the shirt were caught around his wrists. The cuffs were too tight to slide over the gloves that he was wearing to protect his hands, and the gloves were now inside the shirt. He tugged but could not free himself from the shirt that continued to burn.
