Got a ton of wind and rain (about 20mph so not bad), but it's going to be constant all day. I have a dog that needed to poop this morning, couldn't, and is now sulking around the house and not eating.

The pressure got to me this weekend. Completely altered my mood on Friday and had pretty bad vertigo Saturday. Forgot that came with the territory lol. So I know how she feels.

It has been windy and raining all day without break. I am only now noticing a drop in the wind but the rain is still constant. Everyone's in a slightly better mood.

We did lose power for about 20 minutes. We had tornado warnings for about an hour and something took a hit, but I don't know what. Thankfully we seem to be in a high priority zone.

Ember has her own way of coping with things. I was making a snack when the power went out, heard some rustling, and looked up. Apparently she felt she needed extra comfort. I've never seen her entertain 2 dollies before.

Poor baby!  She looks so pitiful on the blanket with her toys.  We have had a couple of thunderstorms and between the flower essence and the thundershirt Tasha had been much calmer but she still wants to hide in my closet on a bed I have in the corner.  

Did Ember take a proper 'bathroom' break?  My two have decided that rain is the enemy and a couple of times a year I spend half the morning attempting to get everyone to potty.

Yes she did. Funny girl actually wanted out most of the day. At one point she was pacing and staring out all of the windows. I was contemplating closing them, thinking she was stressing about what she saw, when she plopped herself at the sliding glass door and wined at me. Directly at me. Promptly took her out and she barely made it to her preferred spot.

She's having some immediate diahrea then several minutes of straining after (since yesterday) and has skipped breakfast again this morning. She ate last night, so I'm not sure if it's stress related (she's getting hungrier later in the day) or if this is a vet thing. I'm going to give it one more day.

That being said, when I put her breakfast down, she promptly plopped herself in front of the glass door again in way of protest. I think this is her way of asking to go out now (a first!) as I picked up her bowl and took her out and had the same scenario as yesterday (barely making it to preferred spot).

What's funny about this is the glass door only leads onto a second story balcony, so she can't go for a walk from that door, and never has. So why that door says "I've got to go out now Mom" to her is beyond me.

I've had a number of dogs that got loose stools from these big weather events. The current ones don't, which is funny, because they are the ones that are actually afraid. My 3 got their thundershirts put on early and had them one for about 36 hours. Angel is the only one of the 4 who wouldn't go out to potty, but our whole back porch is behind hurricane shutters, so we just took to putting her out there. Of course she finally pooped when I finally wasn't watching and I stepped in it...
Gotta love 'em.
