Poor Belle

Twenty four hours of thunderstorms, which means that Miss Memphis Belle stays closer to my feet than a pair of socks.

Murphy? Meh.

  2. Hey Murphy;

    Well you know that you are Belle's "Daddy", and Murphy just views you as the"Bringer of groceries....and delicious food from the quarter".

  3. Miss Belle does look a bit green in that picture ....but it's cute she's reaching out to hold paws with Murphy. :-)

  4. It's scary when the sky-dogs are growling.

  5. Busy weather weekend here. I get an email alert whenever an EAS alert goes out (job related). 150 pound Wolfhound starts getting very agitated and finally dives under the diner table (a new and unique behavior) during diner. She has never been bothered by weather issues previously. We put her in a Thundershirt and she got better. Much later in the evening after she was more or less normal, my phone boinged out its notification of another alert and she got wound up again. She was reacting to my alert tone on my cell phone. I changed the tone and life as we knew it has resumed. Dogs......

  6. My dogs howl and hide in the dog house during big storms. If there's room for them, as the barn cats usually pile in there first.

  7. My Shep is a Big, Brave Girl and will prove it by staying further away during t-storms. That is, until a big strike on the cell tower just over the hill. When the house stopped shaking and the spots left the vision, she was welded to the bedside near me.

    Dogs. ;)

  8. My lab/pit/shepherd mix once pushed a toilet off its mooring climbing in behind it when a thunderstorm came along. (Fireworks would produce the same behavior.) I got the Thundershirt and it helped a great deal IF we could get her wrapped up before the storm got serious. Then we'd let her into a walk, TILED shower. Not the tub or insert type since those are too easy to get scratched up. She'd lie down and somewhat calmly wait out the storm. At least she wasn't trembling and trying to stuff herself into the smaller space she could find.

    With her passing we passed the thunder shirt along to a friend with a dog with the same problem. Pretty much the same result for them. Worth a try.
