'I think it's the same dog!'

thanks, Meg
The dog days of summer pale next to what I'll call, for lack of a better idea, the loon days of June for one unlucky rottweiler in Tornado Alley. The dog, Chase, actually got picked up in a twister, spun around a few times, then deposited — alive but extremely dizzy — about a block away.

"People started coming up and saying, 'We saw your dog in flight,'" said owner Sandra Holmes.

Here's the story, courtesy of Chicago's CBS2.

In related news, the makers of Flying Dog Ale are suing Holmes and Chase for theft of intellectual property.

If you allow Seamus to continue wearing that get-up he's wearing in your photo, he'll probably pray for a tornado.

Yeah, you're right. Now where did he get such a silly hat? I'm having trouble remembering...

Maggie&Bandit said...

We think you were supposed to wear it, not put it on poor Seamus.

Oh, there's a picture floating around of me wearing it, too... And Jenn. And Sidda. Not at the same time, of course.
