Harley the Dachshund Survives Mississippi Tornado

Meet 'Harley,' the lucky red smooth dachshund from Lafayette County, Mississippi, near Oxford. Harley survived the deadliest barrage of tornadoes seen in the United States in 23 years, which hit five southern states Tuesday night. Our hearts go out to all these good folks. Excerpt from Commercial Appeal: Bessie Mae Russell, and her husband, John, went to the hospital for stitches. Bessie cried for her dachshund, Harley. He wouldn't come in the laundry room when the tornado hit.
There was no sign of him in the debris early Wednesday morning. But later, a family member called his name and the red dog wriggled out from under a pile of debris unhurt. Read more about the tornado damage in Lafayette County, Mississippi at Commercial Appeal.
