1. Good for you.

Maybe he'll be so happy to be with you he won't get bothered by the storm.

2. Our boder collie hides in the middle of the house bathroom (smart place), sheltie barks at it.

 

I'm not sure what good barking at thunder is supposed to do, but she rarely acts afraid. The border collie's just a thunder wimp, but if a tornado came through she'd probably be the only survivor.

6. Well every time she barked at it in the past, the thunder went away.

She figures she must be doing something right.

12. That's actually how dogs think.

I was doing some reading on why my girl got in the habit of now barking at people we walk past while on walks.

They sense danger so they bark. Danger eventually goes away. Viola!

4. I'm delighted you have the dogs back!!

It would break my heart to have to send mine away, even for a short time like you had to. I look forward to coming home after work to the grand ritual of welcome that awaits me.

I'm so happy I can't stand it.

The budster is already figuring the storm out.He's trying to curl his overweight ass into my lap as we speak.

NEVER again will he leave my side

10. well Berta was a bust for us

Charleston got a gentle rain (so far) and fatass slept through the night (on the bed).
Our biggest worry was buddy and katie having a border war over who got to sleep between the pillows (Katie still wins )

The boys are back together.They had a ball getting reunited last night.Katie terrorized him all evening.

Life is good
