Florida is such a crazy state! We're either in a drought or we're flooding! It's been raining almost straight since Monday night. Yes, Tropical Storm Beryl has been helping us to replenish our auquifor, and yes, it was much needed. Thank You! Now here comes the But part...
Our dog, Barney, has been barking almost nonstop since Monday night. And, for such a little dog, he has a loud, shrill bark! He runs from window to window, seriously barking at the thunder. And, of course, since it is Florida (the Lightning Capital of the World), there is ALWAYS a lot of thunder. Sometimes I can corral him, and hold him, and he will settle down for awhile, but he just can't seem to calm down. Sometimes we have to give him a doggy tranq (Monday night), but even that doesn't seem to do the trick.
I really do love my little guy, but after 2 days of barking, I'm at my wit's end. My husband is almost deaf without his hearing aids, so he gets some relief! Even ear plugs don't help me.
So forgive me for saying this, Florida -- "Rain, rain, PLEASE go away!"
UPDATE 1:00 -- YAY! The sun is shining again! Now, Barney is only barking at anything that walks past the house.
