This Beloved Family Pooch Was Saved From Washington’s Terrible Mudslide. the Reunion Is So Touching!

One family pokes among shattered timber, broken glass and a tomb of mud. Here, in a little hollow protected from the devastation around him, the family dog waits in earnest. Where and when and how? On March 22, 2014, near the little town of Oso forty miles outside of Seattle, a community of 50 homes and people en route to other properties along Washington’s Highway 530 were buried under a fast moving wall of mud, carrying with it trees, rocks, and – eventually – houses and cars. Searchers may never find some of the hundreds missing across the square mile of debris that blocks the Stillaguamish River. But among this tragedy there is great joy to be found – and a reminder of hope.
