It Was a Hot and Scary Night

It's been so hot, that when we first saw this squirrel, we thought it had heat exhaustion.
It didn't, it was just cooling itself off in the shade.

Finally, it rained.  It thundered.  And Big 'Ol Nasty Dog panicked yet again.
We tried to close him off from the main kitchen area since he pants and slobbers and we were eating dinner.

Clay went to the rescue.  He left his meal to comfort Big 'Ol Nasty Dog.

He sat there in the dogs bed and held this trembling fraidy cat until the worst of the storm was over.

And me, being the compassionate one, wrote myself a note.

Love from Whippoorwill Road,


  1. awww! poor baby dog! i have ALWAYS had at least one dog that is terrified of storms. one of my blogger buds swears by thundershirts.

    i love that flat-out squirrel. :)

    1. We ordered a "Thundershirt". It arrived Tuesday. We put it on him at the beginning of a rain and it did seem to calm him. Now, we'll have to see how it works when there's thunder. Thanks for the tip.

  2. Oh that poor doggy. It's a good thing, he has both of you. the squirrel looks so funny...Christine
