Stormy Weather Girl

Reyna’s been stressy about storms for a while now. Rain showers don’t bother her, but thunder storms and electrical storms make her very anxious. She doesn’t pace or whine, she just follows me around and when I stop moving she tries to break the laws of physics and make the two of us occupy the same space at the same time. We’ve had a few nasty storms over the last couple of weeks and Reyna has decided that she’s tired of the whole thing. Every time she tries to relax during a storm, lightening strikes nearby or we get a particularly loud clap of thunder. During one storm, she even went outside to rest under the deck (she does enjoy the much cooler air that comes with a storm). Lightening hit something very close, and I’d swear she was out from under the deck and practically in my lap before the air quit sizzling. Not a happy puppy.

Very recently, Reyna has decided the best place to wait out a storm is under the end table. I don’t remember her going under the end table even as a puppy (unless it was to hide while she chewed on something inappropriate). Unfortunately for Reyna, she’s too long, or the table is too short. Either way, it doesn’t cover much of her at all.

Mushka isn't a fan of storms either but Sam had more problems - just had to share his hiding spot - see if the link below works to see his photo:
