Several of you had questions about Scooter’s Thundershirt so I thought I’d post a picture of her wearing it.
According to their website the Thundershirt wrap works by applying constant, gentle pressure to the animal’s torso. This has a significant calming effect for most dogs.
And it really does help Scooter. She isn’t so much afraid of the storms or fireworks as she wants to attack them. And she seems to really like her Thundershirt. She absolutely would not let us put a sweater or anything like that on her but when we tell her we’re going to get the Thundershirt, she just waits patiently for us to get it done. She’s still not happy about the storm but I don’t worry about her having a heart attack.
Skittlez is afraid of everything. From people to other animals to a leaf or bag blowing across the yard. But thunderstorms and fireworks done’ bother her at all. So she doesn’t have a Thundershirt.
I also want to answer a question that somebody asked awhile ago – I am so sorry but I don’t remember who or when asked the question.
They wanted to know where we will put the patio set we bought when we finally get to move again. We actually lease our spot here in Apache Junction, AZ by the year. We found that works for us because we can come and go as we please and still have a place to sit if we run out of money or energy. This year it has been a life saver because of all the medical issues Jim has had.
This is our sport in Apache Junction at the Santa Fe RV Park.
Also, this year we put a shed on our lot at the back end of the sidewalk and we will be leaving the patio set in the shed when we leave. We have a couple of chairs that fold that we take with us in the fiver for the summer.
Thanks Linda – we also leave one of our boats here during the summer but not actually on our lot. Our neighbor across the street has a park model with a carport and he lets us leave the boat under the carport. That really does help to protect it from the sun and dust storms.
