I have my doubts that the dog alerted the owner deliberately. For one thing it has been long established that dogs can’t look up.

i don’t care how good a dog is, i cannot believe it knew a meteorite was coming.

The dilemma was how to alert the owner to the danger without compromising the dog’s secret identity as an extraterrestrial superhero.

Perhaps the dog was picking up an electrophonic meteor, which can be “heard” at the same time they are seen.

My pup leaves little meteorites around the yard. I think that’s special enough for us.

I feel like I always hear about meteorites striking at high latitudes (the opposite of what you’d expect), and I am idly curious whether that’s a real thing, and if so, why

I remember being a tiny little kid at the Chicago Field Museum seeing the car seat and muffler that was hit by one.

Some of these meteor falls have ended up in the courts though when the homeowner sued the renter

Well, she couldn’t have been hit by a falling meteorite unless someone threw it in the air. But that does beg the question, does it go from being a meteor to a meteorite once it hits the earth only or does a human head suffice?
