The Look of Fear

Last Sunday was a sort of stormy one for us. I, as always, was excited for a good storm, and slightly disappointed it wasn't actually much of a storm. 

Hailey on the other hand was not happy. She was extra unhappy that the Man left the house. He seems to bring her more comfort than I do. She didn't go into her cave but spent much of the day in the games room on her recliner. When Man did get home, she was glued to him (and constantly in the way while he was making dinner).

Tuesday night was windy again, and Hailey found comfort being locked in the closet, so we all got some sleep. 

Phod's vet appointment is in a week. Hopefully our vet will have some helpful suggestions. 


  1. We don't like storms either. We like your recliner chair Hailey.

  2. Oh poor Hailey, its no funs being frighten by a storm and all those strange noises. Sending you lots of luffs and hugs sweetie
    Loves and licky kisses

  3. It is odd in all my years of having dogs I have never had one that has been scared of storms, thunder or fireworks - maybe because I get all my dogs at 6.8 weeks and work to desensitize them.....but sadly with adopted and rescue dogs you never really know their past history and what frightened them

    I had Jade from puphood and despite all best trainings and conditionings, the one thing she couldn't really deal with was thunder. Heavy wind would have her looking a bit like Hailey here, but not to the same extent as with thunder. Thankfully, it wasn't much more than half dozen times a year that such storms came. I too hope your vet has some suggestions for you. YAM xx

  5. Hailey, I, Stella Rose do not like thunder at all, you just stay right beside your momma and da and they will keep you safe.

  11. Poor Hailey! That sucks so bad. :(

  13. Poor Girl. Wonder if Man can get special leave from work to go home to cuddle the dog.....

  14. Storm is a very bad word around here!

  15. Our hairy slobbery sister Cinnamon hates Thunder! Wes has a Thunder Shirt that wes puts on when she is really distressed. Mostly she hides in the bathroom behind the toilet. Mommy says it is a mixed blessing as it means she keeps the bathroom clean!
    We sends Hailey special calming kisses

  16. We're so sad that Hailey is having such a hard time with the stormy weather. We hope she can eventually learn not to be. She's lucky to have such an understanding family!

  17. Sorry Hailey are havin a tuff time wif da storms. Dey don't bother me none, but I know a lotta pups hate em.

  18. Oh gurl! I am so sorry. I hopes that the vettie can help you. Last night I was actin' all weird, and Ma couldn't figure it out, I would just sit there and stare at her like Eddie from Fraiser. I really don't do that, so Ma was stressed tryin' to figure out what was wrong and how to fix it. Just a little taste of what your peeps are goin' through. {{hugs}}} to them! (oh, Ma thinks it was gas BTW, she gave me some gas pills and an hour later I was better....☺) Since we can't talk, it's tough! I thinks we need a doggie/human translator device like they had on Star Trek! BOL
    Anyhu, paws crossed for you Hailey!
    Ruby ♥

  19. I am sorry about the storms. Angel Sasha didn't like them at all, but so far I don't seem to be bothered by them. I hope Hailey can find some way to get used to them. I will cross paws for her.

    Ziggy Out!!
