Default I Can't Sleep During a Storm

No, not because the storm bothers me.

Not because any of my dogs are afraid of thunderstorms.

I can't sleep because SOMEONE, a certain Lilshit, takes each thunderrumble as a personal challenge and bounces from the window at the head of the bed to the window on the other side of the bedroom, to the windows in the living room, barking and snarling and spoiling for a fight.

I can't decide whether to or and accomplishes absolutely nothing.

LOL my Aussie was exactly like that. There's something to be said for laid back labs.

You really didn't want to sleep, a dog chasing a storm in doors is much more entertaining.

t-touch.. start out when it is not storming...a few minutes each day with a calming word. THen maybe when the storm comes the calming word will trigger the response you want. IT is worth a shot. THe wrap too...the lady said a t-shirt tied snuggly will have the same affect. But you can't do it only when there is a storm. You have to lay the ground work first. SHe says it works.
