Where's Honey?

Yesterday morning was nice and sunny and warm, but yesterday afternoon was a different story, dark clouds started rolling in. It's kinda nice though, because it cools things down a bit (we don't have air conditioning).

I was running around trying to get ready for work, but I couldn't find one of my dogs (Honey). I was looking all over the house wondering if maybe she went downstairs, because it's cooler down there, or if I had let her out before my shower and she never came back in. I couldn't remember if she came in with Daisy Mae or not. So, I went in the bathroom to finish my routine of getting ready and low-and-behold there she was, tucked in behind the toilet!

I didn't realize that with the rolling dark clouds, there was also thunder and lightning, Honey absolutely does not like the thunder and goes and hides. Poor baby, and I had to go to work and leave the two dogs home alone. It turned out that they were only alone for 45 minutes before my hubby got home though. I bet Honey was happy to see him come home!!
Why is it that some animals are so afraid of thunder? Honey trembles and hides every time she hears thunder, or anything that resembles it. It looks like we are going to have the same situation today....Uh Oh!


  1. That is so cute. Dogs seem to have a second sense about storms. They amaze me with their intuition. My dog paces and pants an hour before I ever hear any thunder.

  2. I wonder why some dogs are so scared of storms, but cats couldn't care less...

  3. Our dogs didn't seem to have problems with storms when they were younger. It was as they got older that they would tremble and pant. It is pitiful how fearful they can become.

  4. It's also interesting to note that animals also sense danger.When the tsunami hit south east Asia ,In Sri lanka, the animals in a wildlife Sanctuary sensed that something big was coming and had all run for safety to higher grounds.Incredibly not one animal was found dead or injured in this wildlife park.Thanks to their great senses..
