Why Rudey does Drugs

Rudey is giving me the eye...telling me in her way something is up and she's not happy
she can feel it coming ..notice the tail is down and not wagging, so not Rudey
Now I understand why Rudey Dog takes Valiums!
Godzilla has been scaring the crap out of her bad!
changes in less than 5 minutes from blue to gray
just rolls in, stressing Rudey and there is nothing I can do
wicked and the winds where 60 mph
then ..this started to scare the crap out of me bad
It's really been bad around here for a while, I keep her on drugs daily, I have to hold her or lay down with her and she shakes horribly..it is so sad. I don't know what else to do for my baby!

THank you for stopping by my blog early this week. I can't wait to blogger 'follow' you into the autumn months.

Smart Mouth Broad said...

Poor Rudey. so cute. I think we need to check into some drugs for Pixie. She freaks out with every storm.

darsden said...

blueviolet-she is having a rough time of it for sure. I don't like the lightening but I love to watch them roll in and the clouds.

Unseen-thank you good to see you here

Actually forcast for the whole next 7 days.. and uhmm we have to "systems" running around out there...LORD help me if a hurricane comes this year with her now acting like this! Go to the vet and tell them she is having aniexty attacks..they will help also childrens benedryl too!

Tabitha@ichoosebliss said...

Its sad to say, but I know how little Rudey feels. Just looking at the photos made my throat close up. Geesh

Pastor Sharon said...

Oh poor baby girl! that is so sad!

Travis Erwin said...

We've had less than normal stormy year which is good, but we could use the rain.

Medora said...

Aw, I love that first picture. My mom's older dog has eyes like that - you would swear she was a person. So much in those eyes . . .

darsden said...

Tabitha-yes, I know you dislike them too. Sorry

Pastor Sharon-it is sad, I wish there was more I could do for her

Travis Erwin-hey welcome good to see ya here. I will be happy to send them your way.

Medora-see does speak with those eyes..always telling me something and yelling help on cloudy days.

Gaston Studio said...

One of Sandi's dogs doesn't like storm either, she trembles at the sound of thunder. Me, I love storms!

Brian Miller said...

wow. crazy pics of the storm. been storming here the last several days...great captures...feel for your dog..i'd be scared too.

Reddirt Woman said...

I found that if I take a lightweight blankie over Chloe's head the dark seems to settle her down more quickly even when I haven't had time to dose her before a storm blows up. Whether I lie down with her or she gets up next to me on the chair or she's on the footrest of Carol's chair, we always keep a light blanket handy in case of storms.

xoxox

darsden said...

Gaston Studio-it breaks my heart for her..nothing I do works!

Brain Miller-it has been crazy weather here usually they aren't this bad, today's storms put yesterdays to shame..they were really bad!

Reddirt Woman-Helen I have tried that with me holding her laying down with her.. she just wants to run and no place to go...I am about at my witts end here!

An Open Heart said...

Poor Rudey....I hate it when animals are scared and nothing you do seems to reassure them. I'm prayin' for Rudey....

Great storm photos....you amaze me with your nature photos....my fav were the ones you took at night of the flower that only blooms at night...(forgot it's name)

dizzblnd said...

poor puppycat! That's so hard to deal with. Bad enough with kids, but at least you can rationalize with them.

Wicked looking skies! I love the Godzilla cloud!

My pics SHOULD all be working now

darsden said...

An open heart- I know I feel so bad for her too wish there was more I could do for her.
They have been scary storms! I have had enough and so has Rudey.

That was the night orchid and her name is Odette she is beautiful isn't she :-)

darsden said...

dizzblnd-it's sad and have been with children that have freaked too..hate it for them too.

Thanks for the shout out on Godzilla..you be the first there. Really reminded me of the old movie :-) I will bounce over and check them out!

otin said...

I feel bad for your pup! They are some nasty looking skies, you have to be careful in the south! Tornadoes can pop up at any time.

Joanna Jenkins said...

Storms are the worst. I don't like them either :-(
xo

darsden said...

otin-thank you she is having a rough time of it right now. Yes, I was afraid one was going too. I would actually love to chase them..and hurricanes, I filmed Katrina the entire time.

Joanna Jenkins-they are getting bad this year.

Fragrant Liar said...

Poor baby! Do they make doggy xanax?

darsden said...

Fragrant Liar-I am going to ask my vet that because the Valiums are not working for her at all or the benedryl.

Maggie said...

Those pictures are fantastic. Animals can tell you so many things are up!

I hate storms too. :(

sarah said...

awww. i'm glad she has you. Sarah

Terry said...

Howdy Dar
Oh my gosh that is just how the sky was here !
The storm just came out of nowhere .
I am usually not afraid of storms for any reason but this one today had me walking up and down ,pacing !
Anyhow just came by to say hi and wish you a great rest of the week.

Happy Trails

lani said...

You are a good mommy send me a picture of your baby for the urblogdog.....Love the dogs....hope the weather clears up....

darsden said...

Maggie-yes, she can speak volumes with those eyes. I am beginning to dislike them too.

Sarah-thank you and good to see you :-)

Terry-welcome good to see you too, it was wicked here again today but worse than it was yesterday when I took these! Thank you and you too com'on back anytime.

Hit 40 said...

Poor Rudey!! My childhood dog used to hide under the coach when it stormed or howled at the bad weather. Maybe some yummy meat cut up would cheer her up? Then, when it storms, she will think yummy treat instead of thunder.

darsden said...

Hit 40-That is the reason she looks like a football with legs now..too many over compensating treats LOL

Becky said...

Poor Rudey Dog!
Where would she be without you?
I am sure she appreciates the comfort she receives from you.
Wish I had a tip or idea for you. But it seems you have and are doing everything you can for her.

Pseudonymous High School Teacher said...

I can see creatures in those clouds. Ominous. Poor little rudy.

LadyStyx said...

Sounds like our Chi. The running joke is that she has to fight me for a spot under the bed during weather like that.

Intense Guy said...

My folks have this huge mean looking German Shepard and she runs and hides at the first boom of thunder. She's a marshmellow all the way through.

Rudey is a cutie pie!

Hit 40 said...

I am starting to look like a football with legs too!! I have to admit... I kinda like it. Yummy Yummy food!!

darsden said...

Becky-she is having a time my friend! I appreciate you.

PSHT-yes I think she can too..esp Godzilla up there. Thank you

LadyStyx-welcome good to see you. It is sad we can't do anything about it. I am NOT keeping her on drugs if they aren't going to help.

Intense Guy-welcome good to see you here too.
Sounds like Rudey except she would be the shepards toy ;-)

Hit 40- LOL food is good..esp chocolate :-))

Nap Warden said...

That is some wicked looking sky. I see why pup was scared.

Peggy said...

Great pictures darsden;

I can see why Rodey is scared, I would be too. My big 95 pound lab used to wrap herself around the toilet. See how smart they are. the plumbing is usually the last to be blown away!

The skies are wicked looking....you can see his fear in his eyes. They look to you to help them! You're good! He's (?) lucky to have you looking out for him!

darsden said...

Peggy-Rudey does that too and when she goes behind the toilet I go and sit right beside her I figure she might feel and know something I don't! I still hate it for her I am taking her back to the vet have an appointment next week. I don't want to keep drugging her if it's not working for her I want another solution!

darsden said...

Nap Warden-oops skipped over you so sorry. Yes, mama wasn't too happy either I just knew a tornado was going to pop out.

Shayla said...

Those pictures are BEAUTIFUL

Thank you for sharing :)

darsden said...

Shayla-thank you and welcome here good to see you. :-))

Heidi said...

Poor little Rudey, sorry to hear she is having a hard time.
So does she share her Valium with you?

Lilly said...

Dogs are so clever hey? and love the photos. You are a great photographer Dar.

darsden said...

Heidi-she is having a very hard time. No, she doesn't share them LOL, I have my own xanex ;-)

darsden said...

Lilly-she does amaze me by what she knows, understands. I apppreicate the kind words, I love to take pictures. I think I need to change my title of my blog though...I am not rambling like I thought I would I am a snapper :-)
