MOORE, Oklahoma -

One Moore woman thought she lost everything in the Moore tornado, including her beloved dog. Then as the nation was watching, a miracle appeared in the rubble. 

We'll never forget the CBS interview with Barbara Garcia, as her missing dog, Bowser, crawled out of her leveled home.

"I knew within reason I had lost him," Barbara remembers. "When he comes scrambling out of there, I knew he was OK. For a little while, there wasn't anything else that mattered."

What matters six months later, Barbara and Bowser are alive and have moved into a brand new home. But after living in the same house for more than 40 years, this one is taking some getting used to.

"There's no memories," Barbara said. "It's not the same when I walk through the front door."

Barbara and Bowser are thankful and counting their blessings.

"Things change and I chose to believe that they change for the better," Barbara said. "God, he missed the best chance he had to take me. He'll never have a better chance. He left me here for a reason. I don't know exactly what that reason is, but I know there's a reason and I know I'll find it and I will find comfort in it."
