We had a very strong earthquake this "morning" at 3 AM in Mexico City. Fortunately there wasn´t any damage, but it was quite strong.
I´ve developed a "sixth" sense since I live on my own and can wake up immediately to strange things (abnormal noises for example) so I woke up right before the earthquake started.
The only dog to wake up was Vermont (he woke up because I woke up first). The earthquake lasted quite a bit and my roof tiles and wood roof were creaking quite scaringly.
Guess who didn´t even move a single whisker? Misha and Homer..... they kept snoring and didn´t noticed a thing...
My cats, over the years and years, have usually been better barometers for severe weather. Dogs can be pretty darned good, but those cats? I guess it's why they have 9 lives.

A few months ago I was watching TV with the dogs asleep beside me when Tess sat bold upright ears up looking around. I thought is someone outside.She looked very concerned and wouldn't settle. Few moments later we had a decent sized earthquake.
The dog we had for 19 years would pick up my seizures before they happened. She was about 10 or 12 when I was diagnosed with epilepsy after a car accident. She would push me into a corner and when I came to she would be sitting with her paw on me. When we went to the beach over summer she refused to go swimming if I didn't go, even though she loved the water.
Glad the earthquake didn't cause any damage.
Thanks... I guess some dogs are sensitive, but not my Labs LOL
I´ve seen these dogs that can detect seizures on their owners and alert them before they happen. They are amazing
Last night I was fixing my pillows before getting into bed and realized that my bed moved a good 10" from its normal position during the earthquake... wow...
