Central Canada Earthquake and YOUR dog.

I happened to be working at home today when the 5.5 earthquake hit at about 1:42 pm EST. The whole house started to rattle, the floor shook and...my dog was still asleep in his bed at the front door!! I had to wake him up to exit the house.
How did YOUR dog or other pets react?
I thought he should have given me at least a few minutes notice!

I hate to admit this but my poor Tyson was home alone at the time I'm hoping he slept through it or at least didn't get scared. When I got home (which wasn't long after) he seemed quite normal and didn't act hyper or stressed out. Personally I didn't even notice that we had one! But I was driving in a rural area at the time.. I heard it went as far north as Sudbury!

Happily enjoying Tyson's puppy stage and amazed at just how fast he is growing!!

My wife was at home and she said Monte didn't do much or respond. In Corunna we just felt the tremmors, my monitor at work was shaking pretty good. Last night we had a pretty good lightning storm and it was funny because he just sat up on the bed and looked out the window and watched. My moms sheppard goes right for the bath tub, lol.
