Thunder in the Air

31 Aug

Bongo waiting at the doorHey person. You’re breaking all the rules.

You are not supposed to leave me alone here when there’s thunder in the air.

Well, I know there wasn’t when you left me – but there is now.

You’re not supposed to leave me alone when thunder might be in the air.

Take me with you next time – or don’t even leave the house.





Bongo and Toby on a walk

Toby and his person came over to go for a walk with me.

I tried to tell them I don’t do walks when there’s thunder in the air.

They wouldn’t listen.

Nobody listens to me.

So I pulled right out of my collar.

They brought me back home.

And left me all alone with thunder in the air.

At least you came home right when the boomers were getting loud.

How come your hair’s wet? It didn’t start raining until after you got home.

Did you go take a shower somewhere?

You have a shower right here. Why would you go somewhere else to take a shower?

Rain shower? What do you mean, rain shower?

It wasn’t raining until after you got home.

You mean there was rain and thunder somewhere else?

You mean it’s everywhere? There’s no way to escape it?

Well that settles it then.

No walks for you today.

Bongo sleeping under a blanket

I’m staying right here under my thunder blanket. Don’t even try to budge me.

      Alex, Trish, and Penny, I think the thunder is supposed to be gone in a few days. I sure hope so anyway. Otherwise, I might have to have Penny come and cuddle with me during the thunder. We can both help each other out.

      Marina, if the thunder is bad I for sure don’t let my person out of the house, but sometimes she sneaks out before I realize the thunder is coming.

      I’ll try Patrecia. But if those boomers get really loud it’s kind of hard to sleep.

    Poor baby, there is just no way that I know of to make them feel any better when they are so scared.

      Susan, I think the only thing that works is to make the thunder go away.

        You are right and I wish I could do just that for you.

    Walking around without your ThunderShirt is crazy! It’s a good thing you made it home safe and sound and a good thing you have a ThunderBlanket. Go away, Thunder!!!

    Love and licks,

      Cupcake, can you come over here and say that a little louder. The thunder always seems to want to get the last word in.

    I was going to hit the “like” button. But I don’t like that the thunder is giving you the scares.

      Thanks Patricia. I’m counting the days until thunder season is over.

    Thunder is scary. One of the family likes to wear a thunder-shirt and sit next to my head.

      Andrea, I wear an Anxiety Wrap which is like a Thunder Shirt. It only works for me a little though. I still get scared.

      Kevin, I wish you’d been here too. It would have made things much better.

    We don’t blame you sweet Bongo for staying in under your thunder blanket. We don’t like the thunder either and we don’t like to get wet in the rain. We hope all that thunder goes away so you can enjoy your nice walks again. Hugs and nose kisses

      Chancy and Mumsy, I’m counting down the days until thunder season is over. It should be pretty soon. I hope. I hope. I hope.
