Look! I got mail the other day! Wonder what it could be?
Oh, it's a Thundershirt, the best solution for Dog Anxiety. Hu-mom must have ordered this for me since we've had a lot of very LOUD thunderstorms lately. I freak out and roam around, going behind the couch in the living room and finally going underneath their bed. She's heard a lot of recommendations for it from our Blogville friends and from others as well.
Mack's jealous, he wants one, too! and it is Rugby Pink, my favorite color and medium is a perfect fit. We'll keep our paws crossed that it works....
Here I am modeling it for you. It fits very snugly!
OK, fast forward to last evening. Dark clouds started to form just as we were heading out for our evening walk with Foxy and Greta. We decided to go ahead and start walking. We'd only gone about 4 blocks when droplets started to come down. We turned around and cut our walk really short. We were home less than 10 minutes when it started to boom and the rain came down hard. (he he he - Hu-dad went on his own walk. He got caught in the downpour and did not get home in time. He was soaking wet).
When the boomers started, on went the Thundershirt. I still hid under the bed. AND I did not come out until this morning. Hu-dad had to coax me out. I've never slept under the bed all night. I usually come out once the thunder has stopped. Hu-mom is hoping that I was so happy and relaxed in my Thundershirt, that I didn't want to come out all night. We'll see. More thunder storms are forecast for the 3rd and 4th of July. I'm sure she'll put the Thundershirt on me when fireworks start on the 4th as well.
Does anyone else have the same kind of experience with their Thundershirt?
Oh, and Mack had his sentencing for destroying the Chapstick...he was given a reprieve and will receive no punishment this time! He is on probation for 1 week! Way to go, Mack!! You always charm the judge.
