Devastating News. Please pray for the Houston Pittie Pack

Dear friends, it’s Amber (Mayzie’s mom).

If ever this community needed to pray and show their support for one of its own, it’s now.

We heard from Sandra – the mom of the Houston Pittie Pack – that her house was destroyed by fire last night. She tried desperately to get all the dogs out of the house but they were hiding under beds and in closets. She was only able to save Brinks and Bella. The rest – Guero, Coco Chanel, Tiger, Lucky and Shelby – are all now at the Bridge. Thankfully, all the humans were able to get out of the house safely.

She is obviously in deep, deep pain.

Please – even if you don’t know them – stop by her blog and leave some words of comfort. (The blog post currently up is from a couple of days ago, but please go ahead and leave your support there so she’ll know we’re thinking of her.) I simply cannot imagine what she must be going through right now. My heart is broken for her and for those sweet lost souls that we loved so much.

  16. I’m sure you will keep us all in the loop on what we can do for them. I can’t even imagine that kind of pain. When one furry kid crosses over I’m devastated. I think this would be more than I could take. I stopped over to offer prayers.

  23. I am so shocked to hear this…they truly have the biggest hearts and have stepped up to help all of their dogs out of dangerous situations. They were also one of our very first friends. Amber…I don’t think I have your email, but could you email us; schwangbach at gmail dot com.

  24. Oh, no! This is horrible beyond words. We are so sorry for their loss.

  25. Thank you for telling us!!! I have been to her blog and left a comment.

  26. I was busy reading the rest of your blog when this came up on facebook 😦 and got totally distracted from blogs. for obvious reasons.

  27. I am trying to figure out how to access the Chip In account and for the life of me cannot do it! Can someone send me an email with a direct link. The picture on Mayzie blog takes me to the Blogville Community Calendar but not the page where I could donate money. I would also like to put the link over on my blog.

    Thanks anyone who can help me…. my email address is

  28. That is soooooo sad. We especially think of what s short, sad life Shelby had.

    My heart is broken and am praying deeply for Sandra and her family. If there is anything I can do to help her, I’m in Dallas, TX, not that far from Houston, please let me know. I’m at work now, but when I get home, I will be donating to the Chip-In. Please please let me know if there are immediate needs that I can help her with. If she has any vet bills, I can help with that for her by donating to the Veterinarian. I too, have 5 pits and 1 cattle dog, all rescue but one. I cannot even begin to imagine her loss. I will continue to hold her and her family up in prayer. I could make a trip to Houston if needed to help her with anything. My home email is lovesscotland98 AT sbcglobal DOT net.

    They are in my thoughts and prayers. I am going to see what I can do about a donation. I am heart broken by this event.

    This has been a bad day…


  34. I read about this at Pip’s blog. I didn’t know the Houston pitties but this tragedy has been with me all day. It is so heartbreaking that I tear up every time I think about it. I’m just amazed at how wonderful all the dog (and cat) bloggers are to show so much support and comfort.

  35. Horrible couple of days. We can’t imagine how horrible we would feel if this happened to us. Our hearts are so with them right now. It’s just too, too sad.
    Barbara, Trixie, Minnie and Jeep.

  36. We stopped by to offer our condolences and support. Such a tragically sad day. We will keep them all in our thoughts and prayers.

  37. Such a sad time. We continue to pray for everyone.

    Woofs & hugs, ❤

    This is devastating and there is no other way to explain it. A family that is so wonderful doesn’t deserve this pain.

    woof – Tucker
