Hard at work

This post is for the four legged heroes who are working hard trying to locate victims of the earthquake in Reggio Emilia, Italy. I wanted to recognize their invaluable contribution to the recovery efforts.







Aftershocks are still occurring. Areas that are badly damaged have been designated as "zone rosse" meaning red zones. To insure safety, people and pets have been displaced from all red zones. They are not allowed to go home, and many have no home to go back to. How awful is that?
 
You know, I have experienced a hurricane, or two... a few tornadoes, momma knows about earthquakes, she mutters "Mondo Cane"  [no I have no idea. She says ... movie, then she gets all weird... so we don't talk about it...] None of these things are any fun. They are messy, nasty, inconvenient and deadly.

Meanwhile, we hope and pray that  recovery efforts are quick, successful and that soon these four leggeds can go on vacation.

We are in agreement...these things are just disastrous and our hearts go out to the families of all who are effected by this tragedy.

Badges!? Oh, good! We need stinkin' badges.
