Storms today and NO ANXIETY

Posted in Uncategorized at 12:05 am by Karma

Yes, you read that right.  Extra Extra, read all about it.  Georgia had some huge boomers today and Miss Adelaide was at daycare and didn’t bat an eye.  No hiding in Dave’s bedroom!  When I picked her up, she wasn’t sulking, she wasn’t  scared, she was bouncing around excited like life was just hunky dory.  The only thing I’ve done so far, was the last storm which I was home for, I put her leash on and I would actually not let her go hide.  I made her stay with me in the living room watching tv.  We talked, we laughed, I made funny noises… anything to show her that nothing was scary.  She could sit next to me, or she could lay on the floor in front of me on the couch.  But she could not leave and go hide.  Who knows, maybe that did it.  But today we were not afraid!  (I sure hope I didn’t just jinx myself)

    BRILLIANTLY DONE! You played your momma masterfully! She fell for it hook, line and sinker!!

    You wanted more one on one time with her… moree attention… more fun and games, right??

    Add GENUIS Addy to BEAUTIFUL Addy from this point forward! Next time there’s a thu derstorm, get your mom to video how she “distracts” you. Shhhh…we won’t tell her how you planned this end result all along, okay? She’ll think its a “training” video kn how to calm a dog during a storm.

    Good job Addy….er…….I mean, good job mom !!!

    Lots of love to all!!

      I think it really did Rene. Today we had more big boomers. I wasn’t at home with her when it was storming, but when I got home, she was bouncing around to greet me like usual and no moping. We’ll keep our paws crossed… has to be back paws since Addy is a front amp.
