With the wild weather hitting the country, the National Weather Service has been issuing notices left and right.
But us being us, we of course took note of a particular one that was presented to Ohio and Pennsylvania...
Calling it a "small dog warning" for the states, the federal agency cautioned owners to "Hold on to your Pooch!" thanks to wind gusts of 45-50 miles per hour because there's a danger they may fly away.
Now I know you're wondering...is this a thing that can actually happen?
According to Mental Floss, very much so!
They cite the sad story of a 6-pound Chihuahua named Tinker Bell took flight back in 2009 and how a similar thing happened to a Yorkshire terrier in Siberia, who was found 3 miles away.
Even though it's rare, The Humane Society of Central Oregon recommends keeping pets indoors during bad weather conditions.
