Burned puppy?

Orkan always seems to be where anything happens. This morning that wasn't a good thing. He was where a warm pot of coffee fell. Warm puppy...

I immediately grabbed him and threw him in the kitchen sink, pouring cold water on him. Good thing he has thick furr, I think the only part of him that really got in touch with the coffee was his right side ear. He seems ok now, but we'll have to wait and see if the skin turns red and starts hurting. Glad I had the reflex of getting him into cold water as fast as I could...

What scares me is how easy that kind of thing can happen! And what if he was a child, not a dog? Children didn't have all that water resistant furr, last time I checked...
Unpleasant thought!
