But you’ve got to admire their bravery, interviewing that dog during the tornado that caused it to dissapear! That took real guts!

Nice story, but it looks staged.

I think you’re on to something. The little old lady buried her dog under the debris when she saw the news crew coming down the street. She then enlisted the help of a rescuer who agreed to her devious plan.

I’m not sure what you’re smoking but I think it might be making you a bit paranoid.

I think it might be a Vast Ring-Wing Conspiracy. The dog was given orders by the Tea Party to remain quiet until the interview was nearly over.

(agreeing with your take)

The dog coming out of that rubble certainly didn’t look staged....and it doesn’t strike me the woman’s reaction indicated such either.......it’s a neat little story of unexpected survial.

Yeah, right. They trained the dog to lie in the rubble, got an old woman to tell this phony story. Maybe the gashes on her arm are fake, too. Definitely something a news crew, w/ miles of tornado devastation to cover, would waste their time and station's money on. Or perhaps the old lady did it to get on TV, in the midst of loosing her home, belongings, and neighborhood. Don't be stupid.

it looks staged.

Yes, it does. The way the off-camera person says "The dog!" sounds fake. And the debris looks like it was just placed over the dog. Maybe it really did happen the way the story says, and they reenacted it for the video.

Heard this audio a few times this morning on our CBS radio news station. Warmed my heart... :-)

God bless the good people of Oklahoma. I can't even imagine living through such horrible devastation...

I agree with what you say about dogs, except for the part about them being like people. There is not a treacherous or deliberately mean bone in a dogs body. That can hardly be said of people.

Your right..dogs are loyal, they would do anything to protect you, and no matter what happens in the day, they always greet you with a lick and a wagging tail

Dogs are our babies

Exactly! That's the way it is here, also. And I get to 'baby' sit when she's traveling but then claims 'I'm spoiling him' ;) while loving the fact that I do. But I do remind her of her own spoiling of him since the very beginning. He's only 8 lbs and every ounce is adorable and I think he knows it and every ounce loyal and we know that.

I have two little babies(Actually they are my sisters but I consider them my own) one is a Shih Tzu named Maxie(he is 6 years old) and Nemo(He is half Maltese, half Pomeranian) he is around 8-9 years old(Got him from a doggy day care so they didnt know his exact age) both such good boys..love to get tummy rubs and kisses..I can’t imagine not knowing where your pet is, they are family..and seeing these missing dogs and cats on TV breaks my heart..I can’t even watch those commercials for dog rescue because I want to adopt them all

My daughter's dog is 1/2Maltese and 1/2Shih Tzu. He's 10 yrs and shares the same birth date as my daughter. What a coincidence. She got him as a newborn pup. Sure wish he was younger.

I can’t even watch those commercials for dog rescue because I want to adopt them all

I can't either nor do I give in to when my daughter suggests 'let's walk over to that puppy place' - it's right over there.

This lady at her age who lost everything now somehow feels she is blessed. It shows she knows what really is important in the midst of chaos. Because she asked and believed - where that miracle came from, there will be another and another. That devastation is horrific, I can't imagine what it's like to be in the middle of it.

A Maltese/Shih Tzu mix awwwwwwwwwwwwww that’s adorable..PM me a photo I wanna see what he looks like..our little Nemo we dont know if he has another breed in him because his ears go up and down and they are like velvet ears..dogs are so smart, they always know what to do..like last week we had a very minor earthquake, but Nemo already had his tail down and he was shaking before and after it happened..Maxie could have cared less LOL must be a Shih Tzu thing
This woman in the video is incredibly blessed, yes she lost her home but those are just things, you can’t replace a precious member of your family and you cannot be replaced so she is incredibly lucky. Can’t imagine going through something like that, look around, can’t find your cherished pet, and he pops out from no where..a true blessing

I don't know how to. My daughter sends me so many of him for no reason other than to 'see how cute he is'... when he's sleeping, looking out the window, after his bath, in his moments of mischief. LOL!
