Sporadic sunshine. No steady drumbeat of rain. A much better day than the last several, except when the rumbling thunder protection protocol had to be engaged.
Everyone was much happier with yesterday’s weather. Sure, clouds blocked our sun about half of the time, but that meant they didn’t block the sun the other half of the time. That is a huge improvement over the past several weeks. We just had one minor problem – a thunderstorm rolled through in the middle of the afternoon with lots of banging and booming.
As you can see above, Frankie is sporting his Thundershirt (Amazon Affiliate Link – See Below). We have found the Thundershirt is great at keeping him calm during thunderstorms if Hu-Dad gets it on before he gets anxious. If he waits too late and Frankie gets anxious, the Thundershirt does little. Best way to say it is we have found the Thundershirt to keep his anxiety from growing, but doesn’t do anything about reducing it. Fortunately, Frankie tends to come to Hu-Dad and ask for the shirt at the first hint of thunder, long before he gets too wired up.
NOTE: Our long standing product policy is simple. We only mention products we actually use. We always disclose affiliate links like the one above (we get paid a small commission from Amazon if you click that link and make purchase. Our commission has no impact on the price you pay.) We always disclose any business connections we have – in this case, we have no connection to nor do we receive any compensation from Thundershirt and purchased the product – years ago – at full retail price. And, finally, you get only a honest review. If you have any questions, ask.
