Mischief Monday - Road Trip to a Storm

Greetings from Point Clark!

On Saturday, we got up very, very early, and got into the car with Lady. We knew it was going to be fun even if she didn't give us breakfast. This with his anti-nausea meds meant Phod did not throw up!

Ok, being in the car was not that fun. We were in it for 87 million hours (Editor's Note 8.5 hours and we covered about 740 km/560mi).

Hailey sat up most of the drive there

But then we finally got here to visit Grammie, the Big Guy and their dog Tendra. 

It was fun, until the thunderstorm came. The one during the day was less stressful. Lee found the perfect place to hide. 

 It was the one at night that caused the mischief.

A very heavily medicated Lee thought the only safe place in the house was in bed with Grammie. Since that couldn't happen, Lady ended up in the living room, with all the lights on, and music playing. Lady had to spray Lee with water to get her to stop digging the wall. (Lady felt very bad about this, but one squirt seemed to stop. Lee and she was able to sleep in the hall).  Lady slept on the couch from 1-3, in her bed from 3-4:30, and then everyone was up for a bit a 4:30 (that may have been Tendra's fault). Finally, we were able to sleep until 8. Needless to say, we had a fairly quiet, nappy day yesterday.

Phod not sure what is going on in the middle of the night

 There is suppose to be another thunderstorm tonight. Lady hopes we can work it out so if Lee needs to she can just sleep with Grammie.

    Grandmothers are special peeps, eh Lady - they exude comfort and safety. Well most GMs... you are lucky to have yours and I sure hope things work out! Hugs and wags, YAM-aunty xxx

  2. You poor thing, Hailey. We hope you get to sleep with Grammie if another storm pops up.

  3. this is so sad, I fully understand your story. we had 2 weeks of a thunderstorm every day and some days 2 and 3, and they always come early am or late pm which interferes with sleeping.

  4. OMD, Grandma's house is always the best! I don't see why you can't just sleep with her during a storm. You need to protect her, after all!

  5. We're sorry to hear you had to endure a thunderstorm on your trip. Our paws are crossed that there won't be any more while you are there (we would wish for them to disappear altogether but we know that would never come true).

  6. Seems there have been too many thunderstorms this summer. Hope the rest of your visit goes well.

  7. Poor Hailey, we sure hope the thunderstorm passes by you tonight!!

  8. Hopefully the thunder rolls won't be too bad. Im impressed you were able to cover so much ground and still be upright. I'd have passed out after getting to Grammies!

  9. Hope the storms have eased, so you can get a good night sleep! (Might be worth bribing Grammie to have a dog in bed...BOL!)

  10. Being in Grammie's bed sounds like the safest place. Good luck, sweetie. GO AWAY, THUNDER!!

    Love and licks,

  11. Oh dear, let's hope the forecast is wrong. Poor Hailey. Hugs.

  12. We can certainly feel your pain. Bentley is terrified of thunderstorms. We had one pop-up today and I hadn't given him his Treatibles. Bless his heart, he tries to get behind the couch but there are wires back there and we can't let him. Once the CBD gets in his system, he calms down and the difference is miraculous in him. I hope tonight is not as bad for you.

  13. A car ride, now that sound lovely.

  14. Oh man, thunderstorms don't sound fun at all gurl! Especially when your not at home with your stuffs and FABulous hidey holes. Wells, at least your Moms has a plan and stayed with you. Sendin' lots of {{{hugs}}} and AireZens

  15. Rain rain go away ... how sad and awful the pupsters get frightened in storms, thankfully we do not have to deal with that. Barking from the Bayou talks often about something to help with it; have you tried that?

  16. we do think that in bed with Grammie is the best place to be in the storm
