That would be my worst nightmare come true, a fire and Rocky runs away. Poor owner must of been terrified during the time his pup was missing. Luckily he was found alive!

Oh god, my worst nightmare, being separated from my dogs in a disaster. Every tornado season I have a low-grade constantly running fear that I'm not going to have time to get to my dogs before a tornado hits....not that one ever has, not near my house, but still! There have been a few times that I've had to grab the dogs and run downstairs to the "safe" room and all I can think of is what if I couldn't find them? What if I had no warning to gather them up?

Glad that little doggie's OK.

Thank you so much for sharing that story, Yoshismom. It sounds like Rolando and Paco are a couple of survivors! Tink, I worry about the same thing - and I worry about getting Kali down the stairs to the basement with her spondylosis. At 40 lbs, she's a hairy, uncooperative sack of potatoes! We had a downblast that took out the neighbor's big pines this week; luckily none fell on the house but my chain link fence was trashed.

We have an emergency plan here. We have the wire crates all set up in the basement for the large dogs as well as Yuka and Gaara. When there is a threat of bad weather I keep the Chi's in a plastic crate beside the bed so if anything happens I do not have to round them up and I can just run them down there. If there is a warning then I keep them down there as well. I think a crate is important for them and an easy way to grab them if fire or anything as they cant run in fright and I can just sweep them up and hopefully to safety.
