Oh my gosh, they're like 6 and 7 this year, and they just get soooo scared with the big thunder (and especially lightning).
My wonderful matriarch Labrador, Shelby, crossed the Rainbow Bridge this past year (at 15), and she was afraid of nothing. Cisco and Rhode, were
always firm when Shelby was around, but not anymore. The big storms roll in and they're skeered (they're under my desk right now, as it hails and
These dogs aren't the big gun-dog Shelby was; to her thunder was just a long night of hunting. To these guys, they're afraid. It's funny
actually...Cisco, the ACD, isn't afraid of anything; he'll take on the biggest bull in the corral, but come thunder and you can't find that boy.
Rhode, his younger Australian Shepard brother, is even worse. Both fearless with giant animals who could kill them in a second, but when Mother
Nature calls...Oh man..."Protect us, Dad, we're skeered...help us, okay???!!
I now have a pile of dumb puppies under my feet, over my feet, blocking my feet. These two don't really even like each other, but they will pile on
top of each other, around my feet, when the weather turns south.
What a couple of nuts!
So, now the storm has passed (5 minutes ago) and they're looking at each other like...Eeeewwwwww.
I love my dogs more than most people!! It's true!
My wife might be an exception. ...maybe.
