This week’s Tickle Paw Tuesday installment features Oklahoma tornado survivor Barbara Garcia discovering her dog alive among the debris of her fallen home. Her joy at seeing him is so touching, and we are so happy that they can be reunited again. Thankfully, Ms. Garcia had him contained in the house with her when the storm hit. On all accounts, he is one lucky pup. As his amazed momma in the video says, “Bless your little bitty heart.”
Our hearts go out to all who have had their worlds torn apart by the recent horrific storms in Texas and Oklahoma. Our personal ties to the areas devastated by the tornadoes makes us well aware of the work that lies ahead for the people of these communities. We rescued our beloved Grandbury from Granbury, Texas, and as a native Texan, I’ve spent many summers visiting family just outside Oklahoma City.
Have you gotten your emergency disaster relief kit compiled? We encourage you to take some time and prepare for the unexpected. We hope you never need to use it, but should you need it, you’ll be ever so thankful you have something to hold onto in the wake of a disaster.
