But it’s not my fault.
My person left me home alone – and there was thunder.
Well, it was quiet thunder – but it was thunder just the same.
And I needed to find a way to hide from it – or escape it.
None of the escape routes worked. I’m locked in the house.
I tried dragging things out so I could hide under them – but that didn’t work.
Then I tried my younger person’s room. The door was shut but I pushed it open.
Maybe I can hide in his closet.
And then it happened.
The door to my younger person’s room closed, with me still inside.
I don’t know how it happened. It must have a mind of its own.
I’m not supposed to be in here.
My younger person gets really upset if I come into his room. Something about hair or something.
What do I do now? I can’t get out.
Somebody’s going to find me.
Oh dear. I hear my person coming into the house now.
Maybe if I’m real quiet…
She’s calling for me. I can’t let her know I’m in here.
Maybe she’ll get busy cleaning up the mess I made and forget to look for me.
I’ll stay real quiet and maybe she’ll think I’m over at my neighbor dog Toby’s house.
Oops. The door’s opening.
She found me.
Person, I have no idea how I got in here.

Aw baby..how awful for you..how you must hsvr suffered. If l had been there l would have put your jacket on for you….poor wee mite

Patricia, I wish you had been here. Thunder alone is no fun at all.
September 7, 2013 at 11:23 am
Awwwwwwwwwwwwwwww, poor thing!!!!! As if thunder was not enough!
September 7, 2013 at 12:31 pm
Marina, my younger person was kind of mad at me when he got home. I kind of rearranged things a little.
September 7, 2013 at 11:45 am
You must have been really frightened to try to hide in your younger persons closet.
If Penny was there with you, you could have hidden together, that way you would be protecting each other from the big booms of thunder.
September 7, 2013 at 12:32 pm
Penny, I sure wish we could hang out together – especially during the thunder.

September 7, 2013 at 12:32 pm
Thanks Susan. At least I won’t get locked in there again for awhile because my younger person’s home for the weekend.
September 7, 2013 at 1:15 pm
How scary you got locked in a room all alone! I think I would have dug a hole in the door to escape! Wooooooowoooooooo!
September 8, 2013 at 4:20 pm
Ku, I started digging a hole in that door once (well, my younger person kind of did too) and they replaced it with a solid door so I can’t dig through it. The only thing is because the new door is so heavy it doesn’t latch real tight and I can push it open if I push hard enough. It’s just not supposed to close again until I leave.
September 7, 2013 at 1:39 pm
If younger person doesn’t want you in his room he should make sure the door is shut tight. It’s his room and his responsibility to protect it. That’s what I think. Oh, doesn’t he have hair?
September 8, 2013 at 4:21 pm
Patricia, I agree, but my person says it’s not my younger person’s fault. The door was shut but it won’t latch really tight and I can push it open. It’s just not supposed to close again until I leave.

What’s a dog supposed to do? Left alone with sneaky, quiet thunder trying to kill you…. It’s a wonder you didn’t chew through the walls. I think in an emergency, special permission should be given to do what you have to do. It’s not your fault.
Love and licks,
September 8, 2013 at 4:22 pm
Cupcake, I agree. I might have to try that chewing through the walls thing though. So far I’ve just tried it on doors.
September 7, 2013 at 1:58 pm
Sweet Bongo we are so sorry somehow you got shut up alone and with thunder booming too. That thunder just needs to give you a rest. Hang in there sweet buddy hopefully it will all get better very soon. It wasn’t your fault the door closed so we hope you didn’t get in trouble. Hugs and nose kisses
September 8, 2013 at 4:23 pm
Chancy and Mumsy, my person keeps telling me that thunder season is supposed to be over soon but I’m not sure I believe her. The thunder keeps on coming.
September 7, 2013 at 2:03 pm
I hope your person was forgiving. My doggies chewed up the door frames on several of our doors one time when we were out. I don’t know what scared them, but we were very understanding.
September 8, 2013 at 4:31 pm
Kari, I’ve done some good chewing and tearing during thunderstorms before. My person was happy that all I did was rearrange a few things this time. Thanks for stopping by and commenting.
September 7, 2013 at 2:12 pm
It was an accident somehow. No need to get mad at you. Hair… that’s what the vacuum monsters were made for.
September 8, 2013 at 4:32 pm
Stanze, for some reason my younger person hardly ever takes that vacuum monster into his room and he told my person not to take it in there. I guess that’s why he doesn’t like hair in there. It piles up.

Yikes! How much trouble did you get into? I hope your sapien knows it was not your fault.
September 8, 2013 at 4:40 pm
Ruckus, my person just let me out of the room and felt bad for me – but my younger person got mad at me when he got home and found out I’d rearranged some things. I was hoping he’d like it better the way I did it. Guess not. Thanks for stopping by and commenting.
September 8, 2013 at 7:02 am
Bongo, you didn’t do anything wrong…….it’s all those stupid thunder’s fault!!! They shouldn’t have come close to your place!!! *kickking the thunder away*
September 8, 2013 at 4:41 pm
Thanks Kevin. I’ll help you with kicking that thunder away. It needs a nice, big boot.
September 8, 2013 at 2:09 pm
Bongo, it wasn’t your fault. The thunder can do very strange things with you. Granny’s dog always ended up in the cupboard under the stairs and ruined everything, like her new sewingmachine f.e. Anyway, I hope your younger person had a little understanding for the situation.
September 8, 2013 at 4:45 pm
Little Binky, my younger person wasn’t very happy with me. He didn’t like the way I rearranged things in his room. But after he got it put back the way it was he got over it.
September 9, 2013 at 11:11 am
Poor Bongo! That room sound like a tattletale and like it’s trying to get you in trouble.
September 9, 2013 at 12:20 pm
Karen, I think I’m going to have to go in and give that room what for for telling on me.
September 13, 2013 at 5:57 pm
Blame it on the cat.. always blame it on the cat.. heheheh -Ginger
September 13, 2013 at 9:47 pm
Ginger, I’m sure it was Scratchy that pushed me in that room and shut the door on me.
September 17, 2013 at 8:02 am
Not your fault if there was thunder surely??!
September 17, 2013 at 9:59 pm
Dalton, I agree. I’ve got to do something to try to escape the thunder.
September 18, 2013 at 1:10 am
Come live with me!
September 18, 2013 at 10:55 pm
Dalton, if you don’t have thunder I’m on my way.
