Eight-year-old Ashley Taylor's Mandeville, Louisiana, home was in the path of Hurricane Isaac, so her dad, Greg, sent her and the rest of the family to Alabama for safekeeping.

"After they left," Greg writes, "I went to feed the family fish and I found the enclosed scene (See picture) — where my daughter , Ashley, had given good instruction on how her stuffed animal friends should behave during the Hurricane. ( A future leader in the making! )"

On BuzzFeed, one commenter notes: "She did a better job than Brownie did before Hurricane Katrina."
