Suddenly, the cows began to paw at the ground, and the horses began trotting nervously and whinnying. The next thing Sagebrush and the Young Miss knew, a herd of deer came running out of the forest, straight past Sagebrush and the Young Miss. "Fire " the big antlered buck screamed as he ran across the lawn where the little mountain cabin sat. "Run for your lives The woods are on fire " he screamed. The Young Miss had heard that animals in the forest have an alert system to communicate with when danger looms. The Young Miss looked wide-eyed at Sagebrush. "Go wake up your parents, Sagebrush. Hurry, we have to act fast " Sagebrush turned toward the cabin and began running as fast as she could to let Ginger and Maverick-her parents, the house dogs-know of the imminent danger.

She is inspired by her beautiful Welsh corgi Sagebrush and by the plight of the vanishing forests and the consequences of deforestation.
