Simba experienced first hurricane this weekend. We survived Hurricane Sandy without any major events. When she was a puppy she was afraid of thunder and lightening at night. She would jump up from a sound sleep and stare at the window as she backup againts me. She continue to try to back up pressing herself right up to me making sure that I was there to protect her. Since then she has gotten used to thunderstorms. She doesn’t wake up at all even if we leave the drapes open. She has never liked going out in the rain. So when it is time for her to do her business, she’ll run up to the door and stop right at the edge looking up at the rain. It’s almost impossible to get her out. She can be very stubborn. The hurrican rain and winds didn’t bother her as long as she was indoors. She was going stir crazy being indoors. I decided to take her for a short walk which was interesting. Needless to say, I ended carrying all the way back home. Not an easy task at a nice solid 57 pounds.
