Well here I am again, it's about 1:00 in the a.m. and I am very tired but am also feeling a little ill so that is why I'm still up. So I thought I'd just say hi and tell you about my night last night.
How many of you had a thunderstorm last night? We did, and it lasted for over an hour and a half. Now, the thing to know about t-storms is that my little girl is deathly afraid of them. We have drugs from the vet to keep her calm, that's how bad it is. So, on the one night that I'm tired enough to go to sleep early (11ish) it has to be lightening like a banchy out there. (I do not know what a banchy is btw)
She slept through about the first half hour because it wasn't thundering too loud. The a/c covered it up pretty good, but then the big ones came. And she woke up. Oh my. So she gets up and leaves the room then comes back in and starts scratching my hubby's side of the bed. Which wakes him up. He then tries to get her to come up on the bed but she won't do it. By now the pills have no effect because I had given them to her earlier due to an earlier storm that came through.
So then I have to get up with her and sit with her until the storm finally passes. The only thing she'll 'accept' is us both on the couch and she sits with her back to me and I have her in a bear hug so she feels safe.
Needless to say I didn't get to bed until 2 am. Yes, that is very late, or very early depending on your sleep schedule.
Now my question is this: Am I the only one that does this? I hate so much that she is so scared and there is nothing I can do to make her feel better.
Yes, we've tried the t-storm cd's to (lord I can't think of the right word) basically make her immune to the noise. I think it starts with a 'd'. Anyway, it doesn't help because she can feel the change in the air. The pressure I think. I can always tell when a storm is coming cause she'll sit up and her ears kinda go back as if she hears something. Poor baby.
Well, I've now bored you all to death. Isn't it amazing what you'll share in the middle of the night
Oh my, you'd think I was a crazy person or something. What's the moral of this story? I don't think there is one.
G'night everyone. I'm off to bed now. I'm really not on drugs
