Impawtant Announcement!

Stella here with an announcement!  Back in April we talked about a Thunder Support Group and we have our plans made and ready for you to come to our first meeting this coming Saturday 5/10/2013.

Our members who signed up number seven strong and are:

Myself, Stella
Molly the Wally
Phantom of the OPs
Thelma of Tex-Wis
Frankie Furter
YoYo Ma of the WDA
Little Reufus

We have a perfect meeting place, we have a crate for Phantom, we have water bowls and snacks available, and we feel we will have an enjoyable time together.  We will have a Special Barker who will share some feelings about overcoming storms, thunder and other loud noises.

If any of you wish to come who have not signed up, please comment on this post so we can prepare for you. 

You are all welcome to bring your Storm Jackets, favorite blankets, and anything else that is helpful to you.  We may have good weather or we may have a rainstorm.  Be prepared.

Looking forward to seeing you here.

Your pal,


  1. uh oh. i better get thelma on the road or she'll be late! :)

  2. Can I bring the BIG BED that I Hide Behind???

  3. Frankie, we will be in a smallish and cozy closet, we will have blankets, rugs and other comfy things. I doubt there would be room for a big bed. We hope you will come anyway, maybe bringing a picture of your BIG BED.


  4. Nice one. We can't wait. Have a wonderful Wednesday.
    Best wishes Molly

  5. Oh Stella, what a lovely idea. I think you will all have a splendid time together. I am almost jealous, and am wondering if membership of the Support Group is open to chaps who have not to date shown fear of thunder but, because we rarely have thunderstorms in Scotland and Gail says they are very wimpy thunderstorms compared to the ones in mid-continent USA, whose resilience has not truly been tested?
    Toodle pip!
    PS We do get a lot of rain, as you know.

  6. Are you sure you don't want Thunder and Lightning to come along for sound effects? And Ciara says she likes providing comfort to Phantom, so she would like to tag along too:)

  7. I'll have to ask to see if any of our crew wants to join--But today in our big storm everyone seemed okay, except for our little CarrieAnne that does have problems being brave!

  8. Oh, that should be a great comfort for everyones! Great idea. I don't mind me thunderstorms, butts I could be there for snacks!!

  9. OMD I hate storms!! Please sign me up, I will bring the calming chews Mommy gives me since I wont do clothes.

    Loveys Sasha

  10. Howdy Stella Up Over, we don't care about storms but know some doggies find them very scarey. In fact, mum always has to call us inside cause we just keep on playing outside even when it's going boom, boom, boom. We hope you all have a grreat time and find some things to help you all. No worries, and love, Stella and Rory

  11. Oh we're very late because Mom has a case of the blahs. Bailey, Lola and Mackenzie are all afraid of thunder storms and some other loud noises, too. Can they join? Our sister Gracie who live at the lake is too, but she wears a thunder shirt and it helps her a lot.

    PS Sebastian is a little afraid but he doesn't like to admit it.
