Rain and Drama

Oh brother, we are having some drama right now. It has been raining all day and Sammie is just SURE it is going to storm really bad. He is getting himself all worked up over it and is pleading with mommi to build us some sort of a bomb shelter... underground.. right now. She tried to explain to him that it wasn't something that we could go build at night, in the rain. He wasn't really taking "NO" for an answer. He kept going back and forth, trying to find his own personal bomb shelter, but none seemed safe.

He really started pleading with her and giving her the sad, sad eyes. But, mommi was pretty firm. She said we would have to dig a HUGE hole in the yard, much bigger than any we already had started construction on. And, all of us would have to fit, not just mommi and Sammie. (Sammie was trying to ditch us!!) So, Sammie continued trying to find the perfect place to hide. He got under the desk for a while when mommi was working, but she did not like that AT ALL. She kept accidentally kicking him while she was working. Of course, Sammie was telling her that we should all take cover.

THAT is when mommi lost her cool exterior. She told Sammie to go to weather.com and look at the radar.

We live where the big, red dot is on the map. We aren't even in the storm box near to bottom of the radar, but that didn't calm Sammie down at all. It really just made it worse. He's gone to hide in the closet, in the back, and dig a bomb shelter out through there.

Meanwhile, Katie and I are gonna catch some shut-eye......

You can look at our mommi's ABC Wednesday photos here, if you want to.

We are in the storm box. Very Old Dog is not happy...

We hope Sam is ok. It's so sad to see them go berserk and not be able to help.

Molly doesnt much like Tsorms either. funny she was fine till she was about 5, then we think we had a lightening strike close to the house!

Katherine and Pippa said...

Sammie is right and us dogs know when a storm is near even if it is not very near.

Myself, I like to go out before they arrive, and if they aren't coming to us, I'm still very wary. They can always change direction.

Oh my, this sounds scary! Do you thi8nk you guys should evacuate & stay somewhere for a few days before it actually hits your area?

Poor Sam just wouldn't listen to reason would he!!

I hope he found his very own bombproof shelter to relax in for a while - gotta say I like your idea Katie of having a nice comfortable snooze on the lounge!!
