We had storms race through last night. Tornadoes struck Canton, a town not far from us. There was a lot of damage. So far, five dead and dozens in the hospital. We were expecting thunder and hail, but not tornadoes. We were lucky. Canton, not so much. I’ll know more once it’s light out and I can check the animals.

Poor Iko was a quivering mess with all the thunder. I had to give him his puppy Xanax. It barely did enough to calm him but I don’t like to double dose him, even though the vet said it would be okay. He’s a huge dog so he can handle the dose, but I prefer to err on the side of caution. At least it took the edge off–that and a dog cookie.

Rough night.

  1. Our corgi never liked thunder or fireworks. Those were rough nights dealing with his anxiety. I understand your concerns. We had a great dinner tonight with a foil package on the grill of sausage, potatoes, peppers (red and orange), mushrooms and onions with every (not literally) spice we owned. It was delicious. Leftovers for Tuesdays. I like cooking like this!


  2. Betty: It’s hard to watch poor Iko suffer like that. Nothing seems to reassure him. Strangely enough, it’s a learned fear. He learned it from Tank, our older rottie, before he passed.

    re: grilled packet
    That’s a great idea. I’ll bet it was great on the grill!
