Chihuahua – Weather watcher (from my window)

Ay, caramba, amigos! I don’t want to jinx us, but I am really grateful that we escaped the wrath of Hurricane Irene here in Florida. Puerto Rico and some of the islands got pummeled!!
Check this out:
Of course this picture is fake, but my Mama remembers how crazy floods were in Puerto Rico where she spent part of her childhood. So much so that finding a sharky swimming on a highway would NOT have surprised her. Eeeeeeeek!!
I must also say anything I was muy worried about our boy, so recently installed into his 5th-floor dorm room at FAU in Boca Raton. He was going to be seeing it all VEEEEERYclose and personal from his window!
Some Chihuahua hurricane survival tips:
- Don’t lose sight of your humans. Have your blanky, favorite toy and food bowls ready to go if you have to evacuate.
- Stay on the high ground (for me the back of the couch) but find a safe, warm dry spot somewhere in the safest room of the house – the room least exposed to windows.
- Make sure you have your collar with id on, in case you get separated from your humans.
- Don’t get too spooked and start barking, everyone will be nervous enough.
I’ll be keeping my paws crossed for the folks and critters up the east coast! Stay safe!!!!!!
