This unfortunate incident started during the night when 3 alerts alarmed due to flash flooding and thunderstorm warnings. I made the mistake of leaving our back door ajar when I was lifting the patio umbrella that fell over from strong winds. Naturally, Noodle was with me on the deck. But suddenly, there was thunder. I looked back and Noodle was gone.

My mistake, I assumed she ran back in the house to her safe spot upstairs in our bedroom. After I secured the umbrella, I ran upstairs to check on Noodle since the thunder kept getting louder continuously. As I got to the top steps, I saw her from the window. She was next door running so scared further away from our house since the thunder got worse.
By the time I ran to the front of our house, she thankfully crossed the street safely and I then ran after her. It started pouring by then and thunder kept rolling. She just kept getting more scared and ran faster and I’m sure she hid under a bush which then I could not tell where she was.
Although I was calling out to her the thunder was so loud. I called my family and we all searched for hours with no luck. The rain tapered down and my husband and I searched until 2 am. Around 4 am I checked online and started posting ads everywhere. However, PawMaw was most helpful as her post was shared over 100 times.
The rain finally stopped and we planned to search again. At 9:30 am I received a phone call from an unfamiliar number, my husband answered and it was a lady from the neighborhood that spotted Noodle running into a neighbor’s open yard. Sure enough, my husband called out her name and she darted out the open yard. He grabbed her and she was so excited.
