Thunder Rolls

We have really had some awesome skies in Mississippi lately
Usually means storms are coming I see faces peeking through keeping watch
This is when Rudey starts to go crazydar goes crazy with her camera-drugs poor Rudey
fireball peeking through
the sun barely hanging on
Silence is not this night

We've just recently started drugging Pixie when it storms. She about shakes herself out of her coat. Poor baby.

Great sky pics, dar. You've really got an eye for beauty.

You + A camera = Genius

Love Ya!

Smart Mouth Broad-I am so sorry to hear about Pixie. It is so sad to watch them shake and walk around trying to find places to hide. If I am able I will drug Rudey in time to knock her out but they come in so fast sometimes I don't know till I hear the thunder then it's too late. I also will go and put her on my bed under the covers and lay down with her sometimes it helps..sometimes I am just too late. I hate it for her. These new drugs really affect her and I don't like that but what else can I do.

Thank you I just love taking the shots of the skies for some reason...!

Love your pictures Dar!!!!!

powdergirl said...

Huh, I never thought to drug my dog during a thunder storm. But I might just look into that. She's okay if I sit still and she can lay on my feet, but any time I move she starts to shake. I think she thinks I'm going 'out there' to get struck by lightening. Poor thing.

Thanks for the idea : )

darsden said...

Tabitha-thank you, you are too kind love ya more!

A mom on Spin-yes, she is out again due to today weather! *Sigh*

Reddirt woman-great I can't wait to see yours and thank you.

Otin-thank you very much, wish I could write as well as I can push that button down!

powdergirl-I went to my vet several times. I don't like drugging her, but her reactions to the storms that just started this summer is just too cruel not to do something for her.

Beth said...

Purdy pictures! So, do the drugs work? Maybe I need some for Ms. Poopy.

darsden said...

Beth-thank you, I had to tweak the dosage down some for Rudey half was just too much she couldn't move and her eyes were bleeding they were so red. So, I take the half and half it two more time..and it makes her to were she just sleeps (if given in time that is the key) but if she here's the thunder it's too late.. or if she goes outside and smells it coming.. I can tell and have time to treat her..but it knocks her out for a few hours! Strong stuff from the vet this time she is on Acepromazine.

blognut said...

Awesome pictures again!

Poor Rudey isn't going to be happy with that storm rolling in. Poor baby.

darsden said...

blognut-thank you very much. No she wasn't and insisted I take a two hour nap wtih her till it passed. What I do for the love of Rudey ;-)

Brian Miller said...

Dar;

You do have a great eye for beauty. Some people sure can take great pictures!
You have great skies around where you live
So sorry about Rodey, he's lucky to have you taking care!

jojo said...

could have used some of those drugs today...poor Graciella and the thunder storms do not mix, she was a mess to be sure...;p

Twisted Fencepost said...

We've had nothing but blue skies and big white puffy clouds. No rain here. But I hear we may be getting some soon.
Give Rudey dog an extra treat. She's had a rough night.

Bella said...

it looks as though labor day is bringing with it rain! ugh...

IB said...

I drugged all 3 of my dogs for last night's thunderstorms 'cause we are all much happier when I do.

Awesome pics, kid.

Susan said...

Beautimous pictures, as always. By the way, you can't drug a stuffed dog. I'd like to hug her, poor girl.

darsden said...

Brian Miller-yes it's an addiction right now for some reason, thank you and Rudey thanks you too.

Janie at Sounding Forth-Holy Crap Thank YOU LMAO

Peggy-thank you very much, the skies have been very beautiful and scary at the same time..esp for Rudey.

JoJo-I am sorry to hear you are having the same issues with your puppy maybe talk to your vet too for her.

Twisted Fencepost-Glad to hear the skies are blue for you..esp with your beautiful garden you need them. I do give her lots of extra's on the bad nights for sure.

Bella-We have a mix today, I am hoping these blue skies will last or at least till I finish grilling this afternoon for the folks. Hope you get blue skies too.

IB-isn't it sad they have to be drugged I hate it for my dog but so thankful it is at least helping her some. Thank you kindly.

Susan-thank you kindly and you are hilarious yes, it's hard to get that stuff doggy to take her meds...but with cheese anything goes :-)

darsden said...

HAPPY LABOR DAY TO all my blogging buddies I appreciate each and every one of you and hope ya'll have a very blessed day!

Kathy said...

Great pictures! I'm with you, I love pictures of the sky :) Storms are the best! I feel bad for the dogs that go nuts, they just don't know what is going on except that everything sounds like it's exploding around them. :(

Ann's Rants said...

Reminds me of a classic childrens book "It Looked Like Spilt Milk"

Awesome.

otin said...

Dar, just email powder girl, she will invite you, I hope(LOL) That is what I did!
