John Hanzl recounts what happened this morning with his dog, Izzy:
Woke us up this morning (5:20am) whining, when she never does. So I took her out (live in ancient loft on top floor in south end and only people in building). Was confronted with overwhelming smell of gas on way outside. So called 911 - we are friends with firemen at the Eagle. They came - long story, building main electrical feed was shorting downstairs. and the arcing was causing ozone, that Izzy smelled and saved our lives.
Ditto the dog went missing on South Huntington Avenue the other night. Wound up spending the night at the city animal pound in Roslindale. And then she was reunited with her owner.
Maryr spotted these dogs and turkeys warily eyeing each other through a fence in Brighton yesterday.
The Globe reports the crazed bird is chomping on people's houses, and residents squawk they wouldn't mind if the foul beast froze to death in the upcoming winter.
Jenny Farrell spotted this bunny on the B Line last night (note cat as well).

Guy was puttering around the water in front of Christopher Columbus Park today, and his dog spent most of the time in the bow.
