I saw countless animals being rescued on the news but I didn't see any Rotties being rescued from the flood. I found a couple online. That one in the crate looks just like my Bella! I could not imagine having to put her in a boat to escape floodwaters.
My heart bursts with gratitude of all the people who came from all corners of the US to rescue people and their pets and the shelters all over that took in animals who were rescued or to relieve overcrowding so our shelters could house the displaced pets.
I was so sad to hear that some of those rescuers even lost their own lives. 4 brothers from my own neighborhood were electrocuted in the flood waters when their boat came in contact with down power lines.
My surroundings are so surreal right now. There are helicopters flying over us all day and night.
We went grocery shopping at Kroger and instead of the usual constable for security their was a K-9 officer from Phoenix, AZ! He was a black lab and the sweetest thing.
We drive around to see which businesses made it. Who is in recovery mode and who closed their doors permanently.
One thing that stayed the same though - - ASTROS WINNING GAMES!
