    Dog saves family from fire blamed on cat

    GREENVILLE, Maine (AP) -- Thumper, a black Labrador retriever, is getting credit for saving a Greenville man when a fire swept through his home.

    Roland Cote said his wife and their 7-year-old grandson were away when the blaze started early Sunday in a converted two-story garage. He said Thumper grabbed him by the arm to wake him, leaving just enough time for him to dial 911 before fleeing the fast-moving fire.

    While the dog is the hero, a cat is the bad guy in this story.

    Cote said the fire marshal investigator believes the blaze was started when Princess, the family cat, tipped over a kerosene lantern. Cote says he and his pets escaped safely, but he says Princess did get her tail singed by the flames.

    No surprise. Dogs are good. Cats are bad. That's how its always been and will continue to be.

    LOL ... that was on the way to Jasper for Canada Day weekend. My hockey bag, full of clothes and supplies, tipped over and fell into his space. He had to make due until I could pull over and shift everything back!

    The family members are idiots. Everyone knows you don't leave any type of flame unwatched when you have cats around and I say that as a cat owner.
