Last Wednesday on my work at home day, thunderstorms 42 and 43 of the year (which had us break the record for most thunderstorms in a year) rolled through. Generally, my girl will just go and hide when this happens. She will occasionally look to the Man for comfort. Rarely does she actively seek me out for comfort. For whatever reason during storm 42, she joined me in my office.
I happened to be using the standing feature on my desk when she came in, so she stood up against me.
After awhile I had been standing long enough and wanted to sit down. To do this, I need to move the mat I was standing on. My girl would not move so I could move it, so I ended up rolling it up over her.
She probably stayed under that mat for about 30 minutes before she ventured out. She actually relaxed enough to fall asleep. It was very cute and not disruptive to my work.
When storm 43 rolled in later that evening, she was not as peaceful. She stood in the kitchen and barked.
I will say that given the record number of storms we have had, I am actually impressed with how well our girl did this year. There were 3 nights we had to be up with her. She only did mild damage to one door frame trying to get in the room when we were out.
Let's hope the storms are behind us for the year and next year isn't as record breaking!
