Gorgeous doggie photos - glad to see that thunderstorms aren't a problem. I guess it's something that has to be learnt very young otherwise they can always be something to be frightened of.

I've had dogs all my life (which is why I'm a little bereft at the moment) and generally found that fear of things like thunderstorms is created, not inherent. Dylan couldn't have cared less, and even bonfire night's bangs and flashes didn't faze him. I've only ever had one dog that was fearful of loud noises, and like all the rest, came "second hand", but older than the rest. I always suspected someone in a previous life had told him he ought to be nervous of loud noises, so he was.

We have a neighbour whose dogs are always neurotic. They don't start out that way, but she always fusses over them whenever she thinks there's something going on that might upset them ... and the learn to be upset. Needless to say, she "manages" the village Bonfire Night "Petwatch Scheme", going round warning everyone who owns a pet when there are firework parties on days other than November 5th.

When we had our Border Collie Meg, she used to get excited by storms and run around barking at the sky, tail wagging and having great fun. For some reason over the years she before terrified of them and fireworks and would try and hide inside something. Usually our bed or a bedside cabinet. We put it down to her going deaf over the years and not hearing the storms coming. I found the best way to settle her was to get a large cardboard box, put it on its side with a sheet over it. That was her little bolt hole and thats where she'd go at the first sound of thunder.

The worst thing you can do to any animal is make a fuss of it when its frightened of something - just firmly tell him he'll be alright, nothing to worry about and carry on doing whatever it is you're doing. Hard to do, I know, but it does work.

Whoops! I was in DEEP trouble with Liz today..... she chose a nice quiet little walk for us this afternoon before the Man in Yellow was due to ride his bike on the TV. Aunty B spotted A Cat so we tore after it and I scrambled up the railway embankment after it (Aunty B too old for that). Couldn't find the cat, but the place was interesting enuff to make me deaf to the whistle. Liz v cross. She turned up at the gate (which was locked) and had to get a lady to unlock the gate and fetch me. Oops. Liz worried I'd ripped my stitches. Walkies ended. And no bikkies post-walkies.

Got both my plasters off now, and feeling just about back to normal. Still not having to be seriously training though, but walkies are getting longer. Was allowed over to the bar tonight as no other mutts were there. I found some charming French kiddies who needed help finishing off their packets of crisps. I do like crisps but I don't normally get the chance to eat many.

Had my stitches out yesterday, gave the nice young vet lots of licky kisses as he unpicked them. Such a nice young man, I think he's fallen in love with me.
I also got on the scales : 30.50kgs and not an inch of flab on my toned 8 month old body!
Had a great time Tuesday afternoon: it wasn't too hot and Liz went out client-visiting and took me too. This cute terrier greeted us, then what fun! Scout and I chased each other all round their HUGE garden for 2 hours and didn't get told off once, even though we sent their tea mugs and little table flying (well, they'd drunk their tea and the mugs bounced on the grass). We also caught their neighbour by surprise when she called in. We were taking a sharp corner at top speed and couldn't alter our trajectory, oops! over she went :o but she bounced and got up and smiled.
