Ok this is probably nothing, but I want to put it out there with every other weird thing going on. I live in central North Carolina on Fort Bragg in military housing. My dog has lost her mind the last week or so and what I mean by that is she is so very ansy. She lays in the middle of the floor crying and barks for no reason. She paces the floor and has started "talking" just in the last week. She is also losing massive amounts of hair which she has NEVER done before. I also have an African Grey Parrot who is always happy to stay inside or on top of his cage, but the last few days he makes his way upstairs every morning to where I homeschool the kids. He never does that and we didn't even know he could climb the stairs and we have lived in this house for 3 years.
Now with all that said, I have to mention that for the last week they "army/airforce" have been flying nonstop over our house buzzing us and they have been firing artillery day and night. And I mean it sounds like it is going off in our backyard, rattles our house, and things are falling off my walls. It scared my 13 year old so bad one day he came running upstairs worried that we were being bombed. So I am wondering if maybe all this "activity" around us has my dog and possibly bird stressed out a little. There are no major fault zones around us and we are a good ways away from the New Madrid, so I don't think this could be in anyway affecting them. But I did want to put this out there and see if anyone else on the east coast is experiencing the same with their pets or if it's just isolated to my pets with all the military exercises going on. Thanks in advance. Watchdog

My cats have been going bananas.
There are nights when they pace around the house, meowing (in a weird, gutteral sounding way), agitated, fluffy tails, the whole nine yards. They were like this last Thursday March 10.
The night before the Japan quake we had a big rain storm coming through, so I thought their behavior was odd, but chalked it up to weather. Woke up Friday morning to the news of 9.0.
They've done this before, so I take note. Just wish they could let me know what and where.....

I used to have a dalmatian and we made about a 5 hour move out of where we were living. He HATED car rides but obviously there was no other way to get him to the new place...I kid you not, he had MASSIVE bald patches all over his body from just one car ride alone.
I would imagine hearing all of that is stressing your dog out quite a bit and she probably has no idea what to think so it's not at all unreasonable for her to be "talking" whimpering, cowering, and losing her hair. Strange things scare dogs. My dog has audible farts and when he farts himself awake he'll high tail it to the opposite side of the room and act like the roof is falling in
