Storms? What Storms?

Yo - Opie here.

So dogmom has been making this big fuss because of the way I freak out at storms. She keeps posting about it - every time the sky rumbles and flashes.

She freaks when I freak at the boomies. I am sooooo over that. (Well, mostly.)

Anyways, dogmom got some drugs from Dr. Kate and they helped to make me a little calmer during the storms. Not a lot, but enough that she could try to reason with me. And, she bought this stormy CD that she kept playing all the time.

I liked to make her play it just because she acted so goofy when it was on. Acting all excited when the machine made boomie sounds. I swear, I live with total nutballs.

Anyways, here's what the sky looked like during the boomies. There were light flashes, too, but my paw wasn't working fast enough to get pictures of them.

And, this is how I reacted to the boomies last night:

Wuf Ya!

Buddha doesn't mind T & L. What he doesn't like is when Minnesota Public Radio broadcasts opera. Three different times now he's growled at the radio. He seemed to dislike Madame Butterfly the most.

Kerrio - what's Guy Fawkes?

Guy Fawkes tried to blow up the Houses of Parliament in England in the year...well, a long, long time ago. He was caught and executed for treason. On the anniversary of that event there is a tradition of bonfires, fireworks, and burning an effigy on the bonfire. The effigy is called a "guy." The noise of the fireworks is hard on dogs and cats, especially because some people start before the holiday. My neighbors down the way to the right do the same thing with the July 4th holiday--it's more like five days of firecrackers, not one. My last dog was a wreck during the July 4th holiday.

We really don't like fireworks, no matter what the reason. Humans are goofy.
