Animal Instinct | Earthquake

California 4:04 A.M. earthquake hits Pico Rivera, about 20 miles from my home, in the Foothills. I growled and let out a little bark. My animal instinct kicked in BOL Linguini and Frankie slept through it. M jumped up from a lying to a standing position on the bed. Our house, which is built on granite, shook a lot.

Glad you're ok. I hope you don't get any more of that scary ground- shaking stuff!

Madi and Mom said...

Twinkie oh my gosh that must have been very very scary. We are so glad you are all ok...and we hope there ground behaves from now on.
Poor M will be sleepy all day because I expect she did not get back to sleep.

OMD, that is horrible. We have never felt and earthquake and we don't want to either. I am really glad your all OK. When you house shakes, do you have to have it checked out to make sure it is OK? This is scary stuff to a New Englander.

Frankie Furter said...

OMD what a scary thingy. I can't believe the others slept through it. Did the little peanut wake up when your M did???
How often do you feel them where you live? I wonder how strong it was?
Take care and get a nap.

That would be scary! Nothing shakes in Minnesota except the couch when I jump on it....

KB said...

I remember being awakened by the jolt and then rolling of an earthquake in CA. My husband joked that he'd discovered where my loyalties lay because I grabbed a dog to pull into a doorway with me... Jeez, I figured that my husband knew what to do, and would pull our other dog to safety as well! But, he loves telling the story...

I'm glad that you're all OK!

Jazzi said...

Schwang said...

So scary! Did you feel it more because you're little? Is that why Linguine could sleep through it?

mayziegal said...

Ohmygoodnesses, Twinkie! How skeery! I can't believes that Linguini slept through the whole earth moving! Good job with the growly thing. You are Most Brave, my furend.

Wiggles & Wags,

Stella, Gunther and Betty said...

We heard about your earthquake. I'm so glad everyone is okay.

But Twink I'm worried. Your jumped on the bed instead of running for the hills with you? Tell her jumpin' on the bed during an earthquake isn't a good idea.

Love, Gunther

It must be a little freaky to live somewhere where the ground can't seem to stand still... I wonder if it's like being on a boat..


Cocorue said...

hey Twink, i just read this and i pray that you guys are fine and will Not experience anymore shakey ground.

please take extra care as i will keeeeeel you if anything happens to you or your family


Mango said...

EEEE! Super scary. Thanks for the pupdate to let us know you are OK.


Fiona, as typed by Dr. Liz said...

I'm glad you are okay! Mom has been through a couple of earthquakes, and says that she'd just as soon avoid any future ones! I have a feeling I don't think I'd think be able to sleep through the earth moving!

*kissey face*

Pupdate? BOL I hadn't heard that one yet. We're all fine! There were no injuries, but we sure felt it! It was only a 4.4 but it was also very close to us. They are saying in the news that the chances of this one being a foreshock are only 5% and they keep diminishing.
I still can't believe Linguini and Frankie kept snoring as it hit us. Maybe they're not rescue dogs and I am?

Chester said...

So very glad you and yours are Okeedokee after your corner of the world shook.

I'm laughin' at Coco keeelin' you if anything happens to you. She's a sweetie, ain't she?

Keep up the great rescue work Twink!
Woofs and shaky slobbers,
Chester ;0=)
