    It works!!!


    Our town had an early fireworks show last night
    and the shells were exploding literally right over
    the house or pretty damn close! The booms shook
    the place.

    Normally, Darlene would have had a meltdown and poor
    Bella takes her ques from her leader.

    Now it didn't totally stop Darlene from shaking but
    it cut her panic dramatically. So much so we went and
    got Bella one today.

    Should help on the 4th and since we are heading back
    to FL soon it will help with the T-Storms.

    Good product that does what it says it will do.
    May the FORCE be with you!

    Does it work on car sickness? Delia gets sick in the car pretty much anytime we go anywhere. It's not the motion-sometimes she throws up while I'm packing, before she's even in the car. It's definitely a nervous thing. She also howls whenever I hit the windshield wipers. I thought she'd grow out of the sickness part-Katie used to get carsick as a puppy, but outgrew it by the time she was 2 (Delia just turned 2 last month).

    The website claims they are good for travel anxiety.

    BTW, the Cards still have the best record in baseball, only one playing over the 700 mark, despite so many injuries and having some of their best players out. GO CARDS!! (And saw they fired the guy responsible for his snooping.

    They actually are a nice weight and a nice grey color. In cold weather areas, they'd be good to wear under a heavier coat outside---unless you have a breed like an elkhound with a dense coat. Skinny greyhounds need coats in the cold weather as they have a very thin coat and little body fat.

    It might be psychological. They were still shooting off fireworks last night. We didn't have Darlene's thunder shirt on. She kept looking at it and seemed relieved when SR put it on her. I don't care if it's in her little beany brain or it actually physically helps, just so long as she doesn't suffer.

    Last year she had the $1k eyeball--2 eye "surgeries" while she was awake and standing there like a brave, stoic pup. With the fireworks, the "white" of her eye started turning red again. Fireworks stop, red goes away. Those fireworks stress the poor pup to the max.
