|Hailey during the storm|
July 1st, we had a very severe thunderstorm. Even Zaphod, who rarely seems to notice storms, looked concerned. It was very short lived (about 20 minutes), but it was intense and the house shook. Hailey was unable to calm herself. She went into the crate and tried to dig her way out. When that didn't work, she tried to dig herself into the guest room. As it was evening, we put on her thunder shirt and put her on her leash and she stood under the table where we were playing games.
That night, was a particularly windy night and around 1:30 am she became upset, pacing and growling and barking at the wind. We got up and closed the windows. This didn't help and finally the Man put her in our closet (aka the fortress of solitude) and closed the door. She happily slept there until 6 am when she had to go out for some business.
Needless to say, it has been a tough week for our LeeLee Bug. I hate to see her so anxious. We are going to try and continue to manage it without drugs, but remain open to the fact she may need them for the summer months.
