Monday Mischief: Safety from the Storm

15 Jun

Storm season brings with it many nights of stressed-out dogs and no sleep for me. I am trying a new thing by creating a tent that Louise and Sofie can hide under or just throwing a blanket over Sofie. Louise will stay under a lean-to as long as I am with her, but Sofie is just too freaked to deal with it. The blanket over her, nose exposed, while I cuddle her tight seems to soothe a little, but not much works. The thunder vest has been worthless for many years. I tried Xanax but the storms either come earlier or later than expected, so dosing is hard. It doesn’t stop them from getting upset, but they do seem to fall asleep earlier.

Sofie has decided that she needs to be up on my bed and chew on my pillows to protect me, I guess, from the noise.

Noise is our enemy at the Zoo. I’m glad that most fireworks displays were canceled this year (I hate the noise too). But that won’t stop my neighbors from doing their loud and noisy things from now until August.

Have any of you tried dog headphones to shut out noise? 

What kind of mischief did you get into today?

Just another DogDaz morning at the zoo ❤

    we have two noise-proof pups, but we like the idea with the dog headphones ;O)

      You are soooo lucky. Lulu was ok until she was 8. V says she caught it from Sofie.

    Scared-y dogs are so worrisome for moms. I am scared of a lot of things (not thunder or firecrackers), but when I’m scared I get over it right away and forget I was ever scared at all. Mom says sometimes it’s good to have a tiny brain the size of a marble. #rude

    Love and licks,

      It would be good if they forgot, but they don’t. Your Mom loves you lots
