Hard Headed

Before Norm left for work today, we had a conversation that went something like this:

Norm [looking at the weather forecast]: They are calling for severe weather this afternoon.
Fern: Yeah, that's what's been on the radar...
Norm: It looks like it's going to be pretty bad. How about you give Pellet some Ace (doggie anxiety medicine) so he doesn't freak out as much. (Pellet FREAKS OUT with storms)
Fern: It will be OK. He won't need it, we'll be alright.

Well guess what... I didn't give Pellet the Ace and he's been barking for the past hour and a half - straight.

The phenomenon is that if Pellet is in his cage before the storm starts, he'll ride it out as mellow as ever. If he's caught not in his cage, he freaks out until the storm is over (however long that might take).

I put him in his cage a couple of minutes ago thinking that he'll relax (at least he won't be running around the house like Fred Flinstone... he doesn't get traction on the new floor) but that hasn't worked. I thought about taking a video of him and the barking and posting it on here but then I thought about the reader's/viewer's ears and decided against it...

I think I'll give him the Ace now, it looks like we have severe weather for a while...
