Not all was lost for OJ and his family after the Australian fires swept through their area taking out nearly everything. The Zagami family returned to their home in Wairewa to assess the damage to see at first glance that everything was gone. But one tiny silver lining remained.
The family’s Golden Retriever found that his favorite toy had somehow survived the blaze. His reunion with his stuffed toy and best friend was one of the lone bright spots in an otherwise depressing and sad day.
This is OJ. After safely evacuating, him and his family returned to their home in Wairewa, Australia yesterday to find it entirely destroyed by the fires. But amongst the rubble, OJ found his favorite toy had survived. 14/10 never letting it go again pic.twitter.com/gx3d0P5349

Katie Zagami also found that her wedding dress had made it through the fires unscathed. Another nice surprise! As the community rallies around each other to help clean up and support each other, the stuffed toy is a reminder that the little things in life can go a long way in a time of darkness and need.
