Well I will deliver what i promise, the video is of a dog sitting laying down, being startled, and running away seconds before an earthquake.

Now as the casual observer we may find nothing interesting, but if you watch the video closely and think about it its pretty badass.

Now my basic knowledge of earthquakes i think should suffice for my point, if i am missing it drastically please feel free to correct me. An earthquake has a starting point where a reaction has occured tectonically, like the ringing of a bell the vibrations would move out and away from the original point.

The dog reacts to a direction, the dog gets startled but immediatly reacts behind itself. Anyone who has startled or snuck up behind a dog will immediatly agree this dog got startled from behind.

I know that it is well documented that animals can sense earthquakes before us, and it probably has something to do with the vibrations, but i did not know they could assosciate direction of origin. This video captures that and that is why i find it more fascinating than meets the eye.

I was walking my dog in usual spot at usual time. She went nuts bucking and jumping, twisting back and forth. She slipped out of her collar and ran. I ran several blocks trying to catch up with her.

She was a well behaved dog and had never acted like this. Finally...like 15 blocks later and so fortunate she did not get hit by a car or something...I was able to catch up and grab her.

I got her back on the leash and finally home. We had only been in the house for about 10 minutes when I saw flashing lights reflecting through my window. I looked outside and saw a street crew. A huge sink hole had opened up and it was only about 50 feet from where we were when she wents nuts and slipped loose.

I believe the dog reacted to the preliminary shaking of the quake. It didn't forsee the quake, it's just better equiped to detect vibration and sound.

To confirm this, look at the filing cabinet on the far left - notice the top drawer begins to open even before the guy gets out of his chair. The dog didn't have a 6th sense, just better sense than most office workers.

On the surface it appears the dog sensed the earthquake before the camera, but their senses and reflexes are keen. Dog is moving before anything starts shaking but he could have heard the rumbling coming from the epicenter before the shock arrived. Anyway, pretty cool they got it on camera.

Thats insane!
One of those moments you can think about everything you did that day and how if one thing had changed it could have been a bad day. Cool how the dog could feel the ground was not stable, thank godness you had him/her.

Yeah thats pretty fair, still amazing though to think of the reactionary time and hightened senses to go 0-60 so rapidly.

That is my dog HER name is Sophie and she is actually taking off in the direction of her mom. I posted all the footage on youtube from the cameras at work. www.youtube.com/brianwheeler12 Three of the videos show how she runs around the office until she located her mom "Jessica" and the stayed right behind her escorting Jessica out the door. Also she ran towards the epicenter of the earthquake to find Jessica. P.S. Jessica is the second girl seen running as the lights went out and you can actually see Sophie's back and tail in the bottom right hand corner following Jessica out.
