Boomies Go Away!

We don't like boomies, Opie and me. They're loud and scary and usually come with flashing light outside. It's freaky and frightening. We don't like it, not one bit.

Dogmom used to call it thunder. But she thinks that if she gives thunder a different name, that we won't freak out as much. Guess what, dogmom. It's not working.

You call it what you want. I'm going to stay here under the bed until it stops. And, I'm betting Opie's going to stay right there behind the curtain in the bathtub till then, too. (Not that I'm going to go look and find out.)

Wuf Ya!

I don't know if it really works, but I have read that if you put a snug t-shirt on a pup during a thunderstorm, it will make them feel better. Dakota seems to have developed a sudden fear of storms during our last storm, and the moms are going to try the t-shirt on her next time. Have you tried the shirt?

Hmmm. Does it have to be snugger than the one he wears anyways? (see posting from Nov. 22) Dogmom says she'll try anything, cuz she doesn't think the bathtub is the best choice.

You know what makes me feel better during thunder? A huge bag of fresh neck bones! I'm tellin' ya gang, if you got a raw bone it doesn't matter if they drop a bowling ball next to you!

Whoa! That sounds scary, guys... I never heard these boomies before! I just asked my mom about it and she says there haven't been any since I came to live with her, but we might get them on Friday! (Shiver....)

Hmmmm... we're gonna hafta talk to our dogmom about this neck bone thing. I don't think I've ever had one. Nope, I'm sure I woulda membered. Hmmmm.

(The boomies aren't really all that bad Hudson. It's just that we get lots of extra attention from dogmom, so we milk it, ya know?)
Wuf Ya!
