After a catastrophic 7.1 earthquake hit Mexico City and parts of southern Mexico, rescue brigades and volunteers sprang into action to help recover survivors and victims from the rubble. One of those rescuers captured the world’s attention and heart.

Her name is Frida. She’s a Navy rescue dog and a very good pupper.

Dressed in her protective goggles, vest and boots, the 7-year-old yellow Labrador has rescued and retrieved 52 people in her career, according to Reuters. She deserves lots of head pats and bits of bacon.

And now she’s been immortalized as a piñata!

Piñateria Ramirez in Reynosa, Tamaulipas, is known for making cool, creative piñatas that touch on major pop culture moments.

Their Frida piñata is an “homage to man’s best friend,” as they said in a Facebook post.


They also thank Frida and the rest of Mexico’s “paw patrol,” who have all been working hard in devastated areas since the earthquake hit.

From the goggles and little boots, to the cute little face and golden fur, Piñateria Ramirez totally nailed it.

We ❤️ Frida too!

While some commenters joked they could never possibly hit the adorable piñata of such a brave pup, other critics have come after Piñateria Ramirez hard. But the folks behind the Frida piñata had a comeback ready.

A critic private messaged the shop, scolding them for teaching children to beat a hero. The piñata makers responded:

“All children’s figures are their heroes and they want to have their favorite characters at their parties. It’s a matter of approach. Besides we made it as an homage. Not sure if I’ve explained myself.”

When the critic went on, saying they wouldn’t teach their children to “beat a real hero,” Piñateria Ramirez responded in the best way possible — a Robert Downey Jr. eye roll gif.

“[T]he ones that most understand the concept of the Frida piñata are children,” said Piñateria Ramirez in a follow-up post. They brought the receipts, too.

This Woman Didn’t Realize The Earthquakes Were Happening Until She Livestreamed And It Was Hilarious

How will you behave on the day your big end comes? Will your life flash before your eyes? Will you lay down and be ready and calm as a cucumber when it comes time to meet your maker? These are the questions that keep me awake at night about the people I know and they are the same ones that I got to see answered recently during the earthquakes in Los Angeles. You know, the ones that rocked the earth around Ridgecrest California last weekend with a 7.1 magnitude and the rest of us literally shook.

Many of my nearest and dearest had a hard time dealing with the earthquakes in Los Angeles, which weren’t as nearly impactful as the ones at ground zero. Seriously, I’ve felt more shaken while on a Subway.

But anyway.

Instagram influencer Amber Wagner also experienced the earthquakes and she’s also answering my questions about how she’ll behave when she bites the big one.

When her time comes, Wagner’s reaction proves that she will make Hot Cheetos priority numero uno.

During the earthquake last weekend, Wagner found herself in her car when it suddenly started shaking. At the time she was eating Hot Cheetos and live streaming on Instagram. “It’s an earthquake,” she says suddenly when she realizes that her car is visibly shaking. “It’s an earthquake. It’s a mother fuckin earthquake. Bitch y’all feel that?” She asks to no one in the car.

FYI: Wagner has yet to put or throw or Cheetos down. Priorities.

“The mutherfuckin’ windows are shaking on the barbershop and shit. Bitch it’s a big ass earthquake right now. Oh my god,” THEN she puts down the Cheetos before asking. “Oh shit Jesus, is this it?”

Of course, we were all SUPER worried for Amber and her experience…

Truly.

But also. Slightly amused?

Amber asking NO ONE in the car if they “feel that??” is the best part of the video.

Oh, wait, no. I forgot. This is.

Literally cannot stop, will not stop laughing at this question.

And honestly, mostly it’s just because its a reaction that was just better said than my own.

Which was essentially me crying and calling my mom while I tore ass to get outside. Which apparently you aren’t even supposed to do??

But above all, the greatest thing about this video is Amber’s devotion to that Hot Cheetos bag.

I salute you, Amber. Live long and prosper. And I hope you live streamed or videod your reaction to today’s earthquake because I will be looking out for it.

LA Is No Stranger To Earthquakes But Many On Twitter Forgot How To React, Here’s How To Stay Safe During The Next Earthquake

LA Is No Stranger To Earthquakes But Many On Twitter Forgot How To React, Here’s How To Stay Safe During The Next Earthquake

So let’s be real – California is no stranger to earthquakes. It’s a well-known active fault zone. But that doesn’t mean when one hits we still don’t freak out!

So when last week’s earthquakes struck Southern California, all of social media was freaking out, particularly because they were the biggest earthquakes the region had felt in 20 years.

First came a 6.6 temblor that rattled everyone from Las Vegas to Los Angeles.

The first quake struck near the town of Ridgecrest and was felt as far away as Las Vegas, LA, and even in Mexico. Needless to say people were pretty freaked out. But this wasn’t the end of it.

The very next morning, a 7.1 earthquake struck the same area, sending shockwaves across Los Angeles – where the shaking was pretty intense.

Thankfully, none of the quakes caused any major injuries or deaths and damage was minimal – especially in the Los Angeles area.

Of course, Twitter was lit up with all sorts of reactions.

Like this was defintiely how some of my tios and primos reacted to the quake. Though I think some also tried to play it off totally cool.

Some pointed out the all to real scenario of some of our papis running to safety at all costs.

I mean my papi would never do this but I can see their point…

While others pointed out the potential nightmare of having to lead all of your familia to safety after a major quake.

I mean especially if you’re all together with your tías, primos, and hermanos – like imagine!

Some Latinos questioned the dramatic reactions of others, since Latin America knows earthquakes all too well.

I mean just two years ago Mexico City was rattled by a violent earthquake that leveled parts of the city and killed hundreds of people. While Guatemala and El Salvador have all been hit by major earthquakes larger than those that hit Southern California.

Some pointed out the great examples made by the local news anchors who experienced the earthquake live on the air.

Bravo KCAL9 for setting such a good example for those of us who weren’t totally sure what to do.

While other’s pointed out the real lack of resources available in Spanish.

This is a real liability for the Latino community but also other minority communities that don’t speak English. Without access to proper resources and information, many face greater risks of injury among other risks.

Although the quakes didn’t cause any severe injuries or deaths, they’re a wake up call to Californians to get prepared for the “Big One.”

Every Californian should have an emergency kit. And every kit should have plenty of water – enough to last you at least three days. You should also stock up on non-perishable foods (think canned tuna, beans, vegetables, snacks), you’ll also need a three day supply of these items. A flash light, batteries, first aid kit, medications, copies of important documents – all of these items are essential to keep in an earthquake emergency kit.

And as a reminder, here are some basic tips on how to stay safe during the next earthquake.

Remember in school when they told us to run for a closet or door frame for safety? While those areas are still considered safe to hide in during a quake, the new recommendations tell people to seek shelter under a desk, table, or other sturdy piece of furniture.

Memorize this list so that the next time a quake strikes, you’ll be better prepared to help yourself, your amigos, and your famlia.
