Anyway, back to our story.
Who has seen the wind?
Hailey has and she has decided it is evil.
It all started last week. It was extremely hot here for a few days about 30 C (90 F) with the humidex 40 C (over 100 F). We don't have a/c so the house got hot. When the temperature fell, we opened all the windows to let the house cool down. The Man, the Lady, the Phody and the cats thought this was wonderful. But Hailey did not.
Thursday night, around 4 am, it got windy and she was up scared. Normally when she is scared she just wants to go and hide but the wind makes her want to pace and get love. So between 4 am and 6 am, she had the Man, the Lady and the Phody up. We were all very tired on Friday.
Fast forward to Saturday. The Lady has a few moments to grab a power nap. It is beautiful summer day, temperature in the mid 20 C (70 F) with a beautiful breeze. Really the perfect summer day. All the windows were opened. Lee did not like it and wanted to be loved and snuggled, so it wasn't much of a nap.
After our failed nap we went outside. At first Hailey was very happy tied to her tree, sniffing and ground hog hunting. Then the wind, paired with a loud bang (likely something to do with the neighbours tractor) resulted in a completely stressed out dog.

Hailey has decided the wind is evil.
Given her level of anxiety in the summer (thunder, wind, fireworks) we are again considering medical intervention to help her cope. She is really just a mess.
