Earthquake Preparations

In the last month or two we have seriously acquired a whole lot of new cracks in the concrete surfaces on our home property.  The driveway, the patio, cement paths -- they all show a rise in the ground to the northeast.  We have our earthquake cupboard set for Greg and I and for our cats Otto and Vivika, but Henry is a relatively new family member.  It is time to get his box ready too.  So, lets see.  Food, water, treats, plastic bags, squeaky toys, blankets, towels, magazines to rip up, several cords to de-plug, one leather shoe from a pair or two, an extra collar and lead  ... a pup tent...?

Tomorrow is our last puppy class and my day to create his emergency box.  Wish us luck!


  1. What the heck is going on down there? I can understand Henry tearing everything else to shreds, but the driveway, patio and walkways. You've got to cut back on his food or something. Has the little bugger irritated the Whittier Fault?

  2. Oh my gosh. I wasn't thinking! That has to be what is happening here.
