You know how some dogs are afraid of thunder? Well not my Lu. Your know how some dogs are afraid of fireworks? Not my Lu.
I’ve always been impressed by the fact that Luna has no real fears aside from dogs. But today… A bizarre one has cropped up.
I have a metal roof on my house. It’s great because the snow slides right off in the winter if the weather is warm enough. I am careful though on these warm days not to let Luna out alone in case it does slide. There can be a build up of ice under that snow and it is heavy.
Just now while sitting in the living room the snow decides to slide off. Well holy crap is Lu ever freaking out!
I have never seen her like this! And I’m really unsure why she is doing this. It’s not like this is the first time this has happened in the 3 years she has lived here. Why now? Do I comfort? Do I ignore? Do I wait for her to stop crying then comfort ? What do I do? She is really distressed.
A few minutes later….I have encouraged her to come out of her hiding spot and now she is on the couch laying on me. She keeps glancing up at the ceiling with wide eyes. I am giving her a massage in hopes that she will relax.
While we are sitting here, the snow on the roof has slid off once more and she has left her comforting massage to go hide in the corner and cry again. I need some help. Do they have a mental health hotline for doggies?
