Thor

Last Friday afternoon and evening, we had massive thunderstorms here. Everyone around us lost power; fortunately, for whatever reason, the transformer serving the 7 houses on our block didn't go down. Thor was grateful.

We've been suffering thunderstorms every day since. This is how Thor gets through them.

Happy Thorsday, everyone!

Between the thunderstorms and the fireworks, my Airedale is driving us nuts! She barks and whines through all the noise-making, and it is usually our bedtime!

Poor Thor! I hope he gets some sunshine to calm his nerves and warm his big old bones. Where's Larry?

What a face! He and Zeus could cuddle during the storms and comfort each other...

Hang on Thor. I got a lobster knit and should get it shrunk today. You should have it before the summer is over. Hope you still like Lobster since youve been converted to duck. g

Maggie isn't crazy about the thunderstorms we've been having either, and I'm dreading the usual firecrackers around here on the July 4th. Maybe the ones who used to set them off moved? I am hoping it's so!

Bless his heart... Mugsy was terribly afraid of storms. My girls aren't, but Gretchen does stop what she's doing to listen to the thunder and such.

Aw! Sad eyes. Sadie and Nikita hate the thunder, too. Nikita will hide in the closet if I leave the door open.

Poor fella. Glad Darryl is able to comfort him. Hope clear skies return to his world soon!

heart breaking eyes - you just want to grab him, carry him and cuddle him on your lap...except it would have to be the other way around... :o) the same with my Bundy..

Poor Thor... My heart goes out to him. Charli hates thunderstorms too. I hope it clears up and you have sunny days ahead. Happy Fourth of July!

How does Thor feel about fireworks? Will this weekend be traumatic for him?

The biggest ones are always the most frightened...poor baby!

Paula said...

I'm back ... sending wishes your way for a wonderful time at the wedding tomorrow! How did your new dress turn out? Take lots of photos to share! Hello to the boys from my crew, and a pat for Thor from my youngest.
