College Girl Leaves All Possessions Behind to Save her Dog
Natasha Wallace, a college student from Santa Rosa saved her pet dog, Bentley, using a duffel bag and carrying him along on her bike. The dog who weighs 70-lbs came out alive during the wildfire that devastated parts of Northern California.
According to reports from media outlet The Dodo, Wallace was in her university campus when the wildfire broke out. She immediately went home and saw the massive fire engulfing the freeway. Her instincts told her to get out of there quickly, but she had to pack some belongings.
Natasha told the same media outlet: “It was like a flamethrower. I knew how fast the fire was going. It was really scary.”
Wallace packed a few belongings, took her dog, and got into her car, but the traffic was so congested in the neighborhood that she had to make an instant decision.
“I sat in my car for about two minutes, and I could see the fire getting closer, I said, ‘I’m not burning in my car.’ So, I turned around and went back to the house,” Wallace recounted.
Abandoning most of her belongings, Wallace emptied a duffel bag to make room for her most prized possession, her dog. She said: “I knew the only thing that mattered was my dog. That was it.”
She had her dog sit inside the duffel bag and he instantly obeyed understanding what was happening around him. “He knew something was wrong,” Wallace said.
With the duffel bag containing the 70-lb dog perched on the bike’s handlebars, Wallace pedaled their way to safety. Wallace said: “It was hard. I was trying to avoid the branches and everything on the road. The first 2 miles were OK. I was going off pure adrenaline.”
“Bentley just sat there the whole time, like a super good boy. His well-being was the only thing I cared about at that point,” she added.
