The One with the Quake

Many of you have probably heard about our excitement today. We had an earthquake!! My boy's babysitter, Miss P, was here for the first time today and mom was just passing Nico over to her about to head out for an appointment when everything got shaky. It startled us all for sure! Cali, Phoenix and I did our best to growl and bark a bit to stop whoever was rattling the house. When mom said, "Umm.. I think we're having an earthquake," we all stood around in shock!

I hope everyone is safe!

Later Mom and Miss P were musing that dogs often have a sixth sense about these sorts of events but we... well... we were distracted.

(Notice I'm the most alert, as usual!!)

We've never experienced a quake before today. Have you?


  1. Whew... I was WORRIED about ALL of you... Glad that you are OK and that the ErrrfShake didn't hurt anybuddy. I didn't feel it on my hill butt peeps and pups in Columbus did...

    I have never FELT an ErrrfShake.. butt my mom and dad and SARGE's MOM have. It was a LONG time ago when his mom was a Little Pup. It really Shook their house and made the chandalier SWAY. And the whole HOUSE RATTLED.
    I hope the Her Ah Kane does not come close to you.

  2. We were very worried when we heard about the earthquake. Glad you are all safe - that must have been very scary. We have never felt an earthquake either, but our human brother who lives in California has been through a few - not fun.

  4. We're glad you're all okay! We have had a few earthquakes here, and we didn't get too upset about them.

  8. I wondered if our dogs did anything before it happened, but I have a feeling that our pups may have been 'distracted' as well....with a nap! :-)

    Enjoy your day!!!

    PS: I can't believe that so many schools are closed here today....

  9. Shakin' and earthquakes and her-i-canes...Oh My!

    Hope dat doesn't happen again. Me has never felt da earth shake before although the dishes rattle when da shuttle returned to earth. Do dat count?

  10. WE felt your quake all the way up here in NY!!!! Glad to hear you're all okay! We were worried.

  11. We're glad you're all safe. You have so much to do taking care of Nico that you can't be expected to predict earthquakes, too.

  12. Whew... that was so scary yesterday! Definitely startling since we don't have earthquakes either. I am glad you guys are okay!

  13. Hey Zona Girl!
    Wow, I'm so glad you and your pack are all safe! I didn't feel this one, but I did feel one about two years ago. Scary! Obviously you were totally on duty and you definitely look alert!
