Hero dog lost out west
A dog that made sure no one was forgotten in a burning house Friday is missing.
Amber Kealer said she is one of the victims of the house fire on 42nd Avenue West. She said she woke up to the fire about 6:30 a.m. and ran, yelling “Fire!” to alert her roommates.
“Through all of the yelling and confusion, my dog continued to bark crazily at me and all of my roommates,” Kealer said.
One of her roommates had not woken up. Thanks to Kealer’s dog, Muffin, they were able to rouse him.
When Muffin didn’t follow, another roommate took him outside, but he was spooked and jumped out of her arms. The last they saw of him he was running for Skyline Drive.
A man reported seeing the dog Monday on Interstate 35 near the Boundary Avenue exit, but when he tried to approach, Muffin got his collar caught on a fence and wriggled out of it, heading for Mountain Road, the frontage road next to the Holiday and McDonald’s just off of the freeway.
Muffin is a small “peek-a-poo” with tan and white fur, a black face and partially black ears. Kealer is offering a reward.
“He has already made it five days and four nights in the snow and cold without food and water and I would appreciate anyone’s help,” she said.

People need help, too
Kealer said there also is a fund at Wells Fargo Bank under her roommate Daniel Rossow’s name “if anyone is able and willing to make donations so that we can all begin to rebuild our lives.”
