Hi Pups and Kits!
First of all my Mom got me ready to take a picture in the Thundershirt. She got three good ones, but when she went to transfer from camera to computer, it was no go! What do you spose is wrong there, my Mom wonders. So she will have to see what she can find out. We just have a little Fuji Film FinepixJ12, nothing expensive or fancy. Any of you have this problem?
So I found some pix for you from Google:
Here is one on a Goldie:
website where you can learn more about things: like how they are sized and all. You can get one for the tiniest dog or the biggest. Some of the guys that I know wear them. Like Joe Stains was the first dog to have one that I knew about, then there is Darwin the Great Dane, Molly the Tibetan Terrier. I should tell you about how mine was when I first got it. I didn't like it or want it at all. My Mom forsed me to wear it and it was better, but I still avoided it. So she just put it up for a while, then winter came and we didn't need it. So the other day she saw the rain and me getting shakey. She said "Do you want to put on your Thundershirt" and I did. She keeps the neck part closed up, so I just poke my head through that and she fastens the two other velcro spots and I'm feeling pretty good. This was not a violent storm we had, just a little thunderboomer and some rain, but I think I am hooked on the shirt now. Doubt I will turn it down anymore.
Some others have different solutions, one woman uses a snug tee shirt that she pins at the bottom (I'll take velcro over a pin anyday!), Sam and Marge use a high quality treat system for Marge when it storms and Sam says its all getting better for them with this. Others use a wrap of ace bandages around the dog. My Mom says because of her hearing, she doesn't always react fast enough to storms, so we are just going to keep on with the shirt.
Our support group can be the ThunderDawgs and we are gonna get tough on those storms!
Here is my Mom's Funny (sort of) Its about How Old You Really Are:
Haw many days old are you? My Mom is plenty many days old like 26,445, she will make you feel younger than springtime! Now me, I am only 1,652 days old!
Have a happy day evfurry buddy and if you want to talk Thundershirts just send us a comment! We have no connection with the Thundershirt people at all except once they got some of our green papers.
Stella, A Thunder Dawg!
