Barney's Shirt

We have a slight problem at our house.
No, Barney isn't the problem - necessarily.
The problem is that he is afraid of thunder
and lightening.  When we have a storm at
night he can't sleep and neither does his
mama or some other members of the family!

We heard of the Thundershirt.
It is supposed to work on the same principle
that mother's swaddle their babies.
We got it at Pet Warehouse.
It seems to have already had a calming effect.
I will let you know if this works!
It's supposed to rain tonight!
"Let each of you look out not only for his own interests,
 but also for the interests of others." - Phillipians 2:4
Have a nice day!

My Grand-puppies don't like the storms either! Thundershirt... Great idea, why didn't I think of that:) Have a blessed day dear friend, HUGS!

Barney is so precious. I'm so glad you found him comfort from thunderstorms. I could have used one of those myself when I was younger. My mother and her mother instilled a GIANT fear of storms in their children/grandchildren when we were growing uo. It took a lot of prayer to get rid of that fear after I was a grown-up.

Aww, poor guy. He sure does look cute in his new shirt. I'll be keeping my fingers crossed that it brings him comfort through the storms. I wonder if it works for fireworks. Peanut is fine with storms, but the fireworks do her in.

I've heard of these! I hope it works. Butters cries at night if there's thunder but not during the day. ♥

Twyla, a friend of mine has the same problem with her dog and the Thundershirt has been a miracle.
Hugs to you and good luck,

I have the same problem with my maltese. Even before I see a drop of rain I know it's going to rain soon because he starts shaking, panting and roaming around the house restlessly. I bought the thundershirt too but I was so disappointed it didn't do much but I hope it works your precious!

Poor Barney. Thunder can be so scary. I hope his thunder jacket works. (I have to tell you that my niece has a dog that looks so much like yours and his name is Barney, too. I think he's a schnoodle.)
