Spouses Bruce and Ona Dunlap live in the US state of Arkansas. They have a fairly large number of pets at home: four cats and two dogs.
One morning, when the Dunlaps had just woken up, an agitated neighbor knocked on their door.
She said that a tornado was approaching their city.
Bruce and Ona just had their power gone off in the evening and therefore they did not know anything about it.
The couple, not having time to prepare in advance for the evacuation, in a hurry could only help a disabled neighbor to go down to the shelter.
They did not have time to find all their pets. Sobbing that they had to leave one cat and one dog, the Dalneps went down to the basement, equipped so that it would be possible to wait out the elements.
After a while, Bruce and Ona decided to check if the tornado was over.
The really strong gusty wind died down. But because of it, the roof was blown off in the house of the spouses.
Outbuildings were also badly damaged. But the Dalneps were not worried about it.
They started calling the dog and cat who remained upstairs.
There was little chance that the pets survived. What was the joy of the spouses when a few minutes later the hairy dog face suddenly emerged from the wreckage!
Dalneps rushed to hug her. Bruce and Ona, with tears in their eyes, apologized to their beloved for leaving her in the center of the element.
She just licked them.
After a couple of minutes, the kitty also returned. Fortunately, all the pets were safe and sound.
