    My husband and I are staying at a hotel with our 2 dogs, both 15 yrs old (dogs not us) while our house is being tented for termites.

    One of the dogs paced and whined all night until I gave her a little piece of one of my sleeping pills at midnight. She slept until 4am. And my husband has to go to work - so we are both tired.

    Then I am taking both dogs outside for a morning potty trip and we get on the elevator along with a couple other people. They push the up button before I pushed down - so up we went to the top floor. They get off and just before the door shuts my dog follows and the doors won't open. I have one of those leashes that has the line wound up inside so I scream, but the elevator is now going down and I am still holding the leash. It rips out of my hand and flies to the top of the door. I reach the bottom floor and am in panic mode and push every button on the elevator. I go back up and it stops at a different floor, but I don't know that and am yelling at the people standing there where is my dog... help my dog. Now I have the leash with just an empty string hanging there.

    I told them I had to go up to the 5th floor and so I did. I reached the floor and the lady, who had ridden the elevator with us was there holding on to my dog. She saw what was happening and disconnected the leash! I am so thankful for her!

    Thank God's Angels for looking after all of you. You and your dog. They are our dear friends and God tends after them too.

    I'm so glad everything is okay. I thought all elevators had to have an emergency stop button and an emergency alarm button I would certainly find out why this one did not have a stop button.

    Know what is ironic? My husband repairs elevators and when I called him -he said he will tell the guy who works on this hotel to check it out...the doors are supposed to open when someone passes through - maybe the dog was too small or it didn't work right. I did push the emergency stop button, it just kept going to the bottom.

    I was thinking the same thing! How horrible that must have been. Like everyone else I got so scared and then so happy to have a good ending!

    Wow, she was a quick thinker. I'm not sure I would have been able to realize what to do so quickly.
