Last Tuesday may have started off like any other for Poppy, but little could she or anyone have guessed that a powerful earthquake would be striking later that evening. Quite mysteriously, however, her puppy, whom Poppy calls Twenty, seemed to sense that something was awry.
"At about 11 o’clock that night, I arrived home and I went out to play with the dog downstairs for a while," Poppy told The Dodo. "We were heading upstairs at 11:30 when suddenly the dog ran back outside and started barking at the ground."
It wasn't Twenty's normal bark, Poppy said. He seemed particularly concerned about something.
