Thundershirt Update

Riley's Thundershirt is working great during thunderstorms. It calms him down, and he doesn't mind wearing it. Since Don was in the pool and Riley was in the house getting agitated about it, I decided to try his Thundershirt poolside.

I got Riley all suited up and let him out the door. He seemed to be calm at first, but it didn't take long for him to get going.

First, he ran around the pool in a clockwise direction.

Then he unwound himself in the counter clockwise direction.

Once in awhile he would stop to give Don's finger a kiss. But for the most part, he ran around like a crazy dog. I cut him off after five minutes so he wouldn't overheat or hurt his paw pads.

The Thundershirt isn't going to work out by the pool. Plan B is to buy a doggie life jacket and toss him in.
