I think I’ve got it figured out now.
My first attempt today didn’t work.
That was when my person went outside and then it thundered.
I pushed the door to the garage open and escaped through the open garage door.
I ran down the street and found one of my person’s friends driving by and he let me into his truck.
I thought he was going to drive me away from the thunder, but instead he took me to my neighbor’s house and my neighbor took me back home.
And there was still thunder there.
So later in the day when I took my person for a walk, I tried a new tactic.
I’ve heard of people running in a squiggly path to avoid being hit when someone is shooting at them.
So I decided I’d try that same thing with the thunder. I hardly stayed on the trail at all.
And it worked.
There was no thunder the whole time I was on my walk.
Even though Gizmo was doing his best to evoke thunder in his sleep.
You’re going to have to do better than that Gizmo.
Because I beat the thunder today!
