In my post last week about the Thundershirt mom got me, I said I would let everyone know how it worked. We had our first thunderstorms of the year last night and early this morning.
It worked great!!!!!!!
The thunder started shortly after we had gone to bed. I began to shake, so mom got up and brought over the Thundershirt. I was excited because she had me wear it a little bit every day and gave me treats in it, so I already associated it with good things.
As soon as she fastened it snugly around me, I STOPPED SHAKING!!! I was still a little nervous about the loud thunder at first, but I never developed the usual anxiety symptoms of panting and severe trembling! I went to sleep!! We ALL got to sleep, instead of me keeping mom up all night like I used to. (Mom really likes this part!)
Mom and I are both totally in love wiff dis Thundershirt!!! We give it two thumbs and four paws!! If any of you dawgs are skeered of thunder, I highly recommend it. (If it doesn't work, the website says you can send it back, too!)
Cloud's mom here: It was heartbreaking to watch Cloud be so scared of thunder, and it's a huge relief to find something that really works to make him feel better. It's like a miracle!

PS. My mom can't stop laughing about Flat Nigel's adventures. Here's a link to the blog post she wrote about it, if you guys want to read it.
