Okla. Tornado Survivor Finds Missing Dog During Live TV Interview

the daily dish More on PawNation: Awesome, Dogs, Heart-Warming
Barbara Garcia was one of many Moore, Okla., residents whose homes were destroyed by the devastating tornado. Her on-camera interview with CBS following the storm began like many others as she described grabbing her dog and taking shelter in the bathroom of her house.

"This was the game plan all through the years," Garcia said. But the game plan went wrong, and Garcia lost track of her dog.



Just as Garcia described calling for her dog and not getting an answer, CBS reporter Anna Werner spotted something furry in the wreckage behind them. "A dog! Hi, puppy!" Werner said. It was Garcia's Terrier, poking his head out of the debris and trying to make his way back to his owner.



"Well, I thought God just answered one prayer, to let me be OK," Garcia said. "But he answered both of them."

Normally I would say, "It's just a dog." but, considering everything around her, I guess the dog is all this poor lady has left.

This was definitely staged. No way this was a coincident. The reporter just wanted to say something positive. Hopefully the dog was ok and the woman knew he was there.

This story touched my heart. WE have such a deep love for our beloved pets. This sweet old woman loved her dog so much and faced one of the saddest days in her life, only to be gifted from GOD with the survival of her dog. Truly a great moment for all to stop in awe and thank GOD for small miracles.

Terriers rule, they are so sweet. I\'m glad she has her dog. I bet the dog is happy to be with her.

To bad the horses had nobody to pray for them. Or maybe its just that the people that prayed for them weren't on Gods good side today.
