I hope all dogsters are safe. I live in Colorado. I am currently safe but live in a red zone for Forest Fires. It's been very dry in the state and we have dead trees from pine beetles. It's only June and there have already been 2 record breaking fires. I feel bad for the people who have lost their homes. Thankfully not many lives have been lost and people where evacuated safely.
