For the past 7 days, we have had thunderstorms every single day, some early morning some at bed time. Big is most comfy and stops whining if Daddy and Mommy sit on the sofa, and he goes in between the sofa and the footstool. Daddy puts his legs on the footstool you see here, and there he stays unless one of us gets up.... Daddy put his legs up on the sofa AFTER the storm and Mommy stood up and snapped this JUST FOR YOU..
Big is so much better than he was during storms. I read up on how to act when he is whimpering and whining. They said act normal, don't coddle, don't talk baby talk, feed treats, do fun things. HA on that part.. We ate a meal at the counter, he laid under my legs and did take tidbits while it thundered. I stopped coddling and talking to him, and we turned the TV louder .
Unless one of us gets up.....he follows whomever gets up whimpering until we sit down again.
When the storms come while we are asleep, like this mother of all storms Wed night, Dad sleeps on, Momma sits on sofa, Big wedges in, Momma drapes a blanket over her legs that hangs down and makes a cave, and keep rubbing off and on with her foot... one hour we waited.
WE GOT THIS! Arty, Rosy and Jakey, does this fit for nature Friday?
