      Dog was like 'PEACE! IM OOUUT!!!'



    • The Other Jake

      i see what you did there.

      but failed miserably.

    • Rob

      Last time i checked 01-09-2010 wasn't 2011. You Failed.

  • Scallllywagggg

    If you guys do get a dog, you must name him MOAR. There can be no other name.

      DAD- daily afternoon dog.

  • fieldy409

    it only really reacted a few seconds earlier than the earthquake hit. It could probably just feel or maybe hear it before it was obvious.

    • Benny

      there was a shake when he reacted. but still chive you need a BIG DOG NOT A HANDBAGDOG!

      • GK-4

        oh yes, in the name of god, don't get one those retarded purse dogs. They're not very bright.

      • Dub

        Or a Raptor or a pig.

        • Badfish

          Yes to a chive pig.

  • nywolf

    if you look at the roof, it actually started shaking when the dog started running. but this is bad proof, I've seen that they really CAN sense earthquakes, so I'm still not a skeptic…

  • Bobby Craddock

    the dog probably sensed tiny tremors that occured before the main one, people always say dogs can sense when it rains, or earthquakes and whatnot.

  • Rion Axé Kelsey

    I was so hoping to see that dog jetting down the steps before the people and bust out the dog… THAT would have been epic!

    • Josh

      he would have, but he knew he needed a human to open the door

    • TitoRigatoni

      ^um, bust out the *door?

  • naigoto

    Tss, that's nothing, I can sleep through magnitude 5 earthquake B)

    • the truth

      I was fixing myself a drink and smoking a cigarette during an 8,8 earthquake.
      True story, Chile, February 27, 2010.

      Fuck yeah.

          Shaken not stired

  • BigDingo

    Could we train them to predict when relationships are going to turn into a disaster? Cause that would have avoided a few headaches for me…

    • Mokuseitora

      Dogs are smarter than that… there is no way to dumb down a dog to feel your pain.

  • Turnip

    love how the fat guy thought it was him causing the quake and stopped for a moment,

  • Nina

    Ha, Kevin Smith was totally freaked out

  • petes

    Large groups of pilot whales stranded themselves on a beach near Christchurch a couple of days before BOTH earthquakes (Sept '10 & Feb '11)… coincidence?

    • Gerald

      Just stupid, suicidal whales.

    • meh

      Yes total coincidence. Whales beach themselves all over the world all the time, even when no earthquakes follow.

  • Ori

    step 1: get a dog
    step 2: learn to distinguish dog running as sign of an earthquake instead of a random cat/ball tossed around/car drive by etc'

    • HARD

      And then what? A 10-second head start on an earthquake doesn't really amount to much.

      • Ori

        as the saying go
        I was commenting ironically

        how the hell can u distinguish between the different types of running dog ?

        • http://www.facebook.com/jonathan.prack Jonathan Prack

          That was an oh crap this shits about to fall down run clearly

          • dubular

            I adore running clearly.

      • LostK14

        Really?? If you're in a building that could collapse you don't think that headstart would amount to much? That's fine I guess, just one less person to go around while I get the hell outta there…

  • [clevernamehere]

    Jeez Fido…..a bark would have been nice.

    • mikey

      i know right? lassie would have barked and ran off to get the fire dept

    • TitoRigatoni

      'screw you guys, i'm outta here'

  • justsaying

    The early warning system didn't help the dog get out of the door any faster…a fat guy bet him.

    • Adub Dub

      And sadly, he lost him – even with pocket aces.

    • junii

      No, the dog ran to go get his owner before he left. She's the chick you see the dog running near.

    Don't you get it? This dog didn't detect the earthquake, HE STARTED IT. EVERYBODY PANIC!

  • DanielB

    I think my dog might be defective =/

  • hot carl

    they didn't have time to clear the chive from the history on their computers

    I am glad we don't hear so well.

  • Pink floyder

    Earthquakes are LOUD and dogs have great hearing it heard it coming

  • Mr_Rob

    An earthquake is "made" by two kind of waves. The first ones (and the speediest) are almost inexistant for humans, but audible/sensible to some animals, and can travel with an advantage of even 5 or 6 minutes from the second ones. The second ones, of course, are the "destructive ones". So, when a dog feels an earthquake, it is not "predicting" it but sensing the first round of waves.

    • Mokuseitora

      And humans need to train their brains to see other animals running and KEEP UP. Check out the reports on the big tsunami… couple of years back. When a tribe that survived was asked how they knew they were in danger… " we saw birds flying differently, and fisherman said water went out and took too long to come back, we ran to higher ground." (quote not exact.)

      • Mr_Rob

        I have not said otherwise. Just pointing out that there is nothin "hypersensorial" about it. Besides, I'm from Chile. You should know that I have some personal experience about earthquakes, tsunamis and dogs and birds running minutes before them.

        • C-C-C-fart.


    • xlsdx

      You mean dogs don't have magical powers? I'm shocked.

      • Mr_Rob

        Yeah… it is kind of shocking, I know. Please, don't tell your dog about it. Might get depressed (mine did. My mistake)

  • Nickincollege

    when is the chivery coming!?

    • Kellen

      Dogs have already sensed it.

  • Fred

    People think that a dog jumping up and running 2.2 seconds before the humans "sense" it is considered "sensing" or something extraordinary? Come on. If it were 30 seconds or something, sure. But all these tales of animals taking off 5 minutes before an earthquake seem far overblown. Dogs probably have far greater sensitivity to vibrations than humans (who are wearing socks and sneakers).

    • Kellen

      So what you're saying is that they have a greater sensitivity and used their sense of hearing or sense of touch to detect the earthquake sooner, but they have not "sensed" it. You're an idiot.

      • Fred

        No, Sir.

        I am Fred.

    • skylarrr

      I'd like to see you do the same thing before an earthquake hit. Had it not been for the dog, the owner(s) of the dog probably would not have reacted as quickly.
