I am so proud of Roxxy!

I have lamented many times on this forum about Roxxy's fear of thunder. It is all encompassing for her and at times irritating for me (like 2 a.m.!). Today it thundered constantly for 8 hrs. I gave her a small dose of her doggie downers (didn't even make her sleepy) and she was great all day. She followed me everywhere I went (yes, including the bathroom) but she didn't try to crawl in me or on me. I don't know that she ever went to sleep but she wasn't panting, drooling, shaking and being generally terrified. She laid at my feet on the bed.

Roxxy at noon...notice the ears. They were rarely down.

Roxxy at 7 p.m. She is a pooped little puppy!

That's terrific. Let's hope she continues to improve. We moved from an area that never had thunder & lightning to one that can have titanic storms. So I'm a little worried about the coming spring boomers with my shy dog. She heard a little thunder for the first time the other day and she hurrumphed a little at it and went right back to sleep. Hopefully, she'll react just as unconcerned when the really big storms come.

Good girl Roxxy!
