Thunder... oh my!

Britian doesn't get many thunderstorms. So even though we've been living here for nearly a whole 6 weeks mom's never seen the way I react to them.
Having Dogdar, and being super sensitive to stuff like changes in the pressure systems I was on high alert and being careful all day. I would not leave mom alone (and she got a bit fed up! coshaving a 36kg greyhound under foot all day isn't easy!) But I couldn' t explain to her why I was acting this way. She noticed the clouds, and the rain when it came but it sure took her a long time to figure out that was why I was upset. Mom says most dogs whine when they are unhappy, but since I don''t speak at all it makes me even more mysterious. (imaginary BOL.) She's not so bright sometimes.

I was shaking and panting and making big slobbery piles of panic salivia all over my new bed. I didn't leave the bed all night, not even to walkie. That worried mom but there was NO WAY i was going out there with all that evil noise! It was ok see, cos I know not to eat or drink with a storm coming. I know i don't want to go out in it so I make sure that I won't need to. I am smarter than Mom thinks!

In more exciting news... I got a new bed. It's big and squishy and I am laying in it tons cos it's soooo comfy. Mom likes it cos I can't spread it all over the room like I do with my blankies. She says I sometimes take more space than her!

In scary news, a man stopped us on walkies today and asked mom if she wanted to buy another racing dog like me. She got really flustered and said NO. The man was very shady. Mom was worried that the man had stolen a dog or he would steal one for cash. I am sure glad I have my chip and my tag and my tattoos. Lots of scary people out there!

love Dara
