While science and technology have evolved a lot today, there are still circumstances that people are not capable of manipulating or even predicting. This holds true particularly for some severe natural calamities like super typhoons, tsunamis, and tornadoes. During these times, we usually come unprepared and not expecting the worst to happen.
Nonetheless, even if science and technology fail us sometimes, we are still lucky to have our pets’ reliable senses. We are very aware of the fact that dogs can sniff out bombs and predict danger, such as upcoming earthquakes and tornadoes. Indeed, dogs are our trusted allies.
Bella, 54 days after the tornado
Last March 3, a storm has hit Cookeville, Tennessee. Eric and Faith Johnson had lost their home due to this incident. Before the storm wreaked havoc, their dog named ‘Bella’ alerted them. The moment they knew that the storm was coming, they jumped into their bathtub and stayed there for hours until the heavy rains subsided. The family was safe, but they completely lost their home and Bella.
When the storm has passed, they realized that Bella found missing. They tried everything they could to find their dog, but they couldn’t seem to find their furry savior. Just last Friday of April, the family received the news that the trail cameras caught Bella hiding in a ravaged building. They left food on the building, blocked the alley, and finally found Bella. Eric and Faith reunited with Bella after the dog went missing for 54 days.
Dogs are four-legged creatures that depend on people for food and shelter to survive. If you feed and give them shelter, they will love you back. Dogs are dependent on humans and vice versa especially during some of the unexpected times.
Humans are not capable of predicting what’s going to happen. Is there an earthquake coming? Is there a storm rushing towards a particular area? Humans cannot answer these questions but dogs can and just by alerting us, they are saving us. How do they do it? Well, we don’t know what part of their DNA contributes to that. But, we are sure of one thing, dog’s loyalty to us endures.

So sweet! Bella was found alive more than four miles from her home in Putnam County.
