Few Words Friday

Hello everypup, Girl Girl and all your humans. Today for Few Words Friday we would like all of you to say a few words and a prayer for the victims of the devastating I-35W bridge collapse here in Minneapolis. Also remember the brave police officers, firefighters, paramedics, and rescue workers who risked their lives in the rescue effort. There were also many brave civilians who helped rescue victims immediately after the collapse. The deaths from this tragedy are small right now, but there are still many cars that are in the water and it is not known how many of the people in them were able to escape. There are approximately 20 to 30 people still missing.

The only positive of this is that traffic was down to two lanes from four in each direction because of road repair. If the whole freeway had been open, who knows how many more victims there would have been.

We would like to thank all of you for your concern for us and our humans. It makes us feel really good to have such a great group of friends. Belly Rubs, Tasha, Eva, Vicky, and Doug.

Woo T & E, I am glad that your family is all safe. My mom was out of town when this happened, so she had dad help me look on your blog to make sure you were ok.

Big hugs,
Sitka
