Mike Reasons, 50 years-old, with epileptic seizures lost his service dog Jessie, 11-years old, evacuating the Camp Fire and was reunited with his dog on Nov. 28. Reasons, an HVAC technician lost his dog, his truck, his wallet and his work tools. Allegedly a good Samaritan drove him to Adventist Health Feather River Hospital in his truck while he was having a seizure but the truck was stolen with his tools inside three days before the fire he said. “The whole time I was looking for (Jesse) I didn’t care about my tools, my truck anything I just want my dog back,” he said. Jessie, a Border Collie  rescue dog, is so close to him and is Reasons’ only stable home although the two of them are constantly on a bus, in the doctor’s office, in the ambulances, falling off bridges because of his seizures he said. Also, getting lost in fires he added. Reasons was at his friend Dave Cook’s shop with his dog Jessie the day of the Camp Fire, he called his wife Mary Reasons and she told him about the fire. He helped her evacuate and drove back to get her from her house. By the time they drove to his friend Dave Cook’s carpenter shop, Jessie was gone he said. “At 8:30 a.m. we didn’t have the slightest idea that the fire would jump Skyway that quick, it didn’t even look like enough smoke in the sky when we left,” he said. “I left Mary (Reasons’) house about 11:30 on Bille Road and Pentz Road.”The couple drove back to his friend’s shop with his wife’s truck around 3 p.m and his whole area was on fire. “There was at least four houses on fire at the bottom of his street there was no way to get in there. We circled back around on Skyway and there’s a way to run through the field behind Big O Tires to get to his place. I ran back there and looked and checked for Jessie.” Everything was burned around them and Jessie’s smart, he left, he said. Missing dog flyers with photos of Jessie were posted in Enloe Hospital nurses lounge, in American Red Cross shelter and were handed to Cal Fire crews to help find the dog When he got to the America Red Cross shelter at Neighborhood Church at 4:30 p.m. he started posting flyers for his dog Jessie. “Everything that could have went wrong went wrong but everything’s worked out right afterwards,’ he said. “I want to focus on the positive energy of this.” He had gone four days without his seizure medicine and started to have seizures at the shelter, his cell phone was stolen at the shelter and the missing dog flyers listed his old number. His foot was run over the day before Thanksgiving by a tenant in the American Red Cross shelter. That lead him to go to Enloe Hospital to meet Renee from the American Red Cross to call the Chico Police to file a police report to find his dog. “Jessie is my partner, I want to say my kid but he takes care of me and I can say he’s a service dog that needs service,” Reasons said.” I’m going to retire him in a few years because he has a torn ACL in his leg but it’s too late for surgery.” It was 9:30 a.m. Wednesday that the volunteers at North Valley Animal Disaster Group read Jessie’s microchip and started to locate him he said. It was 20 minutes to 5 p.m. that the couple received a call and they hurried over to the Chico Animal Shelter to get Jesse. Linda Calbreath, ultrasound technologist at Enloe Hospital, is volunteering at the Chico Municipal Airport and was walking Jessie at the animal shelter. Reasons recognized his dog and called out to him. “Jessie was so excited he came unglued,” he said. “Jessie was so excited they had to put him back in his kennel while we did the paperwork,” he added. Calbreath said in spite of the situation he is in, he’s upbeat and grateful to the people who helped him in little ways. He is not letting the dog out of his sight and he doesn’t want to risk having the dog be separated from him again she added. ”I cried tears of joy, it was the best moment in my whole life,” he said. “Even though bad things had happened it’s turned out that if that didn’t happen my dog wouldn’t have been located.American Red Cross, Cal Fire, everybody, there’s so many people that have been so concerned about him and did everything they did to help me.”

That’s where designers and artists reach into the picture, […]
