We have been having some crazy weather here in Maryland yesterday and today.  We are getting all those storms that raged through the south, spitting out tornadoes.  We have been under so many tornado warnings, that I am starting to wonder when Maryland became Kansas.

I got this pic off a local tv station's website, the red are the worst parts of the storm.

But what do you do if you have a dog that has bad anxiety during storms.  I will tell you.

Just recently I purchased an item that was the best $36 I have ever spent.  A Thundershirt for Dogs.  Peanut used to shake, whine, and pace during storms.  Now that we have the thundershirt, he calmly lays down during the storm.  He will even chew his treat like there is nothing going on.  I recommend this for everyone who has a dog with storm anxiety, it works!

Spring has sprung and it is quite lovely out.  I think today is going to be up in the 80’s here in Maryland.  Beautiful!  Too bad I have to work later….

I thought The Reincarnationist Series would be more than what it was. I did not like this book. It jumped around too much and I had no idea what the story revolved around or where it was going. I don' think I will be reading anymore of these books by this author.

So last night we had a thunderstorm roll through.  It was pretty amazing.  But unfortunately Peanut doesn’t think thunderstorms are amazing, he thinks they are scary.  Good news though, I think I may have found a way to relieve Peanut’s anxiety with thunderstorms.  The Thundershirt!


We have only had the thundershirt a couple days and I was still working with him to associate the thundershirt with something positive, like treats.  So I wasn’t sure the thundershirt would work at first.  But last night proved me to be wrong.  Usually Peanut shakes and looks for a place to hide during the storm.  Not this time.  After the storm started my brother grabbed Peanut’s Thundershirt from his drawer and put it on him.  He said as soon as he put the shirt on him, he stopped shaking.  After a while Peanut went and laid down on his bed, and was relaxed the entire time.  Once I got home there was still some thunder rolling through, and I decided to leave the shirt on Peanut.  He laid calmly in his bed while the thunder rolled through. 

So if you want to check it out for yourself, you can go here.  It is supposed to help with all kinds of anxiety problems in dogs.

Don't Die Dragonfly was better than I was expecting it to be.  And to be honest it is more like a short story than a book, even though it has chapters and a cliffhanger at the end. 

Sabine is in a new school, she just wants a normal life like every other teenager.  But Sabine has a gift, and when her gift shows her something she has to figure it out and help those around her.  Oh and still keep her gift a secret....

I must admit I really enjoyed this book. I will probably look into getting the next book in the near future.
