This dog survived the tsunami, and found refuge in a restaurant called Sea Breeze. It was in 2004, she was just a puppy. Since then, she (she is a lady) never left, and is now more than 10 years old and enjoying her sleep.
The owner told us that story on the first day we went to Sea Breeze. The dog had just fought with another dog who tried to enter the restaurant. It seems that, because of the circumstances in which she arrived, she held a special place in their lives.
