Often times a photo can express more than mere words. Here, a woman comforts her Dachshund during an aftershock at an evacuation center for pets and their owners near an area devastated by an earthquake and tsunami in Kesennuma, north of Japan, March 17, 2011. Hold your little ones tight.
Here, another woman holds her Dachshund at the evacuation center. Thanks so much to our friends at Dachshund Delights for sharing the shots. See more photos at Reuters. Please consider making a donation to our Japanese friends in this time of need. WorldVets might be a great organization to consider.
