Hi Anna,

Bailey i'm afraid is a complete baby 8O We have had (and thank fully passed) the said storm - Bailey sat very nervously under the dining room table, ears back and sad droopy eyes :cry:

He's not normally that bad but the thunder sounded like it was in the attic - he was not a happy bunny, so i turned the tv on and up loud to try and drown it out :?

He then slinked on the sofa and sulked, while checking every few minutes to see if i was still watching him :lol:

charlie will go outside then come running in and hide before we even catch sight of lighting..lol..

brandy just stands and sniffs the air

We're only had one bad thunder storm since we've had Harvey - it was in the middle of the night, and Harvey didnt even wake up :lol:

As it happens we have a storm here now and Buster isn't bothered by it in the least,which is a good thing.

Yes i'm sure they think i'm madder than normal. :roll:


I do try to stay away from them during a storm so they don't pick up on my fear.

We had a really bad storm up here in January, about a month after we got Brady. There were hurricane force winds, a family of five were killed fleeing their home on a neighbouring island and the power was off for days in some parts.

We were sitting in the darkness, listening to all the tiles coming off the roof and our fences being torn down, and all the while little Brady was completely unfazed by the whole experience. Just enjoyed all the extra attention while the telly and computer weren't on!

He's a pretty fearless dog - the only thing that freaks him out is next doors cat :lol:

Thunder and lightening - no problem. 2 little cats - terrifying! :lol: Scooby is so scared of them that he lies like a statue, only moving his eyes. They are so cruel sometimes, like sitting in doorways so he can't get past!

Not had a storm since we've had Corbie. There were very loud fireworks at Hogmanay though (could feel the shudder through the house!) and he didn't bat an eyelid! Mind you he was only 8 weeks old then so now he may have something to say about it all :D

Same with us - Shadow is totally un-fazed by thunder and lightening - it's Rosie that goes ballistic and hides under the stairs.
Shadow's first experience was when he ws about 6 months and we were caught outside in a storm, he ran around like a headless chicken!! lol
