Just how windy has it been in Ohio this week? The National Weather Service in Cleveland issued an "unofficial 'Small Dog Warning' Wind Advisory" because of 50mph gusts, reports People. "Hold on tight to your small dog so it doesn't fly away," the NWS advised. Which may sound like a joke, but not to a Chihuahua: Just ask Tinker Bell. For the record, the NWS also warned people to brace for downed trees and power outages, but the good news for Ohioans and their small dogs is that the advisory is now lifted. (Bad weather caused a plane to nosedive twice before landing in Reno.)
