Toto knows big winds can be a serious problems for little dogs.

To keep all of Ohio’s dogs safe, Cleveland’s National Weather Service (NWS) issued an unofficial ‘small dog warning’ on Tuesday, when the northern Ohio area was experiencing 50 mph wind gusts.

“We have an unofficial “Small Dog Warning” Wind Advisory for northern #Ohio and NW #Pennsylvania this evening through Wednesday. Wind gusts 45 to 50 mph! A few trees may be blown down. Scattered power outages possible,” NWS Cleveland tweeted along with a graphic of a dog caught up in a strong gust.

The small dog warning was part of a larger Wind Advisory cautioning Ohio and Pennsylvania residents to watch out for power outages, blown down trees and missing trash cans.

After being battered with gusts measuring as high as 57 mph on Tuesday and Wednesday, Ohio is no longer under a Wind Advisory.

According to Today, the Ohio’s dogs made it through the blustery two days without any issue.
