Black and White Sunday: Eyes Wide Open

It seems like THUNDER SEASON rolled in early this year. It was 4 o’clock in the morning and Sofie and Louise were beside themselves. Nothing ever helps calm them when the clouds are crashing and flashing, but when it is the middle of the night, it seems worse.  It used to be that just Sofie would freak but, my luck, about a year ago, Louise caught the shakes and now she too gets scared. Thunder vests, calming treats, CBD cookies, and even Xanax do nothing for Sofie. And, when a storm comes on quick, all that is worthless anyway. (I love how the vet says to give them stuff 30 minutes before the storm starts. Yea, right. I can do that.) I’ve pretty much tried everything I could find. Best I can do is love them through it. Thankfully, it doesn’t seem to bother the little guy or the cats. It is going to be a looooonnnnnggggg loud summer, I fear.

Wordless Wednesday: We Slept Through It!

Yesterday was 4th of July and you know what that means – FIREWORKS! Not only was it going to be a stressful evening but when Mom was walking us to get us tired before dinner THUNDER rolled in. Mom was not sure how we were going to do this evening with all the rumbles from Mother Nature and the crackers used to honor our Forefathers (a double whammy). It didn’t start well because Louise didn’t want to eat all her dinner because of the thunder (though Sofie decided it was OK to finish it for her before Mom caught her).

Mom played nice smooth jazz music for us during the storm. It always helps distract us from the noise. She thinks it is more soothing than classical (which can get quite raucous). And after the storm, we played our evening games. She tried to take us out to potty before it got dark, but as soon as we got in the yard we heard pop pop pop and ran back inside.

Once it got dark, everyone was watching TV and it drowned out most of the crackers and, as you can see from the pictures, Louise and Sofie were able to snooze right through the ‘1812 Overture.’ I was a little concerned but managed to see myself through until I could go ‘night night’ in my downstairs kennel, with the curtain down, and the music up, and some extra treats.

We hope your celebration was quiet and peaceful and full of treats. – Charles, the Mugwump

Monday Mischief: Thunder Rolls and Bed Rolls

Mom came back from the beach and brought thunder and lightning. We don’t like that at all. Please save us! We are trying to hide in the corner with Mom.Thunder collage

Louise went into her kennel where she feels the safest. But I need Mom to sleep with me on the floor. Mom brought her pillow and blankie down to my bed.

Where are you going to sleep, Mom? I like your pillow much better than mine.

What mischief did you get into today?

Wordless Wednesday: Any Desk In A Storm

ww 6.15.18

 Louise has decided that the safest place to be when there is a storm is under Mom’s desk.  At first I could not find her because she is black and it is really dark under there.  Now I have an extra furry foot rest.

Have a great Wednesday!

Wordless Wednesday: Enough Boomers Already!


Mommy thinks that this stretchy shirt thingy will make me feel less crazy when the big boomers start outside the window. She says that there are elves in the sky rolling balls into pins and when they hit them it makes those big smashing sounds.  I am not sure that I believe her but the shirt does make me kind of sleepy.  I really only feel better when I am lying on Mommy’s feet and, of course, when they stop making all that racket.

And then just when the thunder stopped there was all these crack crack crack sounds from the house next door.  Mommy said that it was a silly holiday where people like to blow themselves up and shoot gun powder into the air.  Bowling elves in the sky and then crackers.  Where’s a girl to hide?  Oh, Peanut’s bed, of course, with Louise and Nine.  We were all kind of shook up.  Why don’t people do anything quietly!


We are speechless!  Thank you, Peanut, for saving us, and Mommy, for my new thunder shirt.

 Happy Wednesday!
