Okay you guys, I am now CONVINCED about my dogs and earthquakes.
Last night, I was exchanging emails with a local ATS'er regarding our seismic activity. As I was signing off, my dog started acting SOOOO wierd, that I sent this email:

Okay, so I was on my way to bed when my little dog started freaking out.
She is shaking and clinging to me. I have never seen her this way...hope we aren't gonna get a quake!!
Now....that is ATS time.. I am on the West coast of the states and it was 12:27 AM.
They just updated USGS with this quake:

Yes, this was a very small quake, but it was VERY close to me. (probably around 20 miles)
If my dog EVER acts like that again.....I am going to be very nervous. She was literally shaking, sitting on my feet and wouldn't even take a treat. I had to hold her under a blanket and pet, coo to her for almost 20 minutes before she settled down. It was bizarre. (my other dog was doing his looking around wierd and barking at nothing) I checked the seismos last night ofcourse, but they didn't add it until late this morning.
