Philadelphia Mayor Nutter just issued a statement telling Philly residents that storm shelters for the approaching hurricane will open Saturday night at 6pm, and urging them to bring their pets- "No pets should be left behind" - thank goodness, some good did come out of the Katrina.

Mayor Nutter is a good guy, it seems. All the Philly bassets are welcome at my house...I'm not too far north. We have lots of toys and Pupperonis. Ready to ride this thing out.
Yes, but how many of the Philly bassets would actually go back home with their owners? :lol:

"Your basset? Why, I'm sorry, I haven't seen it anywhere, it must have gotten scared and run off (under my bed where I'm keeping him/her until after you leave."

There were a couple of times when I lived in Florida that I didn't evacuate when I should have because I couldn't take my dog to the shelter. I remember after Katrina, especially in the Gulfport area, people stayed with their pets, and died. Many of the ones who died had their pets survive.
