MOORE, OK (CBSDFW.COM) – Barbara Garcia survived the massive tornado that struck Moore, Oklahoma on Monday afternoon. But she lost track of her beloved dog when the tornado hit, leaving little hope that her dog survived.

“I was sitting on the stool, holding my dog — this was the game plan through the years, to go in the little bathroom,” said Garcia to CBS News’ Anna Werner. “The electric went off in the bathroom about the same time I felt the stool come up out of the floor.”

Garcia says she remembers rolling around but never lost consciousness as her house was reduced to rubble. When it was over, her focus quickly returned to her dog.

“I hollered for my little dog and he didn’t answer, or didn’t come. So I know he’s in here somewhere.”

Moments later, an individual behind the camera suddenly yelled “the dog, the dog.”

Garcia turned around, only to find her pet’s head exposed and his body buried beneath a pile of debris.

With help, Garcia immediately began pulling debris off of her dog. who was able to return to his feet. The dog was eventually able to walk free from the structure, much to the delight of his worried owner.

“Well I thought God just answered one prayer to let me be okay. He answered both of them.”
