(Nearly) Wordless Wednesday: Calming the Storm

It’s Bonfire Night here in the UK, today. So many pups and pets struggle at this time of year, but we’re so luck that it doesn’t really bother our gang… usually.
This week, Ellie hasn’t taken to bangs, fizzes and whizzes very kindly. She’s nowhere near as bad as a lot of furry friends, but it has unsettled her slightly. When Ellie gets uptight, it sends ripples of insecurity through the ranks, so we decided to try to nip it in the bud.

We popped Ellie’s Thundershirt on her early in the day, in preparation for the night-time activity.

And fortunately it turned her into Wonder Westie, and banished that firework fear away!
We’ve had a relatively (as it ever is) calm night in the Pawed household and we hope you have too!

    • Thank you, guys! It did seem to do the trick, we repeated tonight as well and probably will for the rest of the week… oddly a lot of organised display (which happen to be the really loud ones) go on, on alternative dates to the actual day!
      Hugs, Carrie & Pups x

    • Aww thank you! Yeah, usually not a bother on these pups but for some reason, this year is different. Still, paws crossed, the Thunder Shirt seems to have done the trick!!
      Hugs, Carrie & Pups x

  1. That’s a great idea to have Ellie wear her Fireworks Shirt before things got going. Sounds like it helped keep her and everyone else calm. Love her adorable Wonder Westie superhero photos — those fireworks don’t stand a chance! 💢👊💢

    • Haha! Thanks Bill and Charley! Yeah it really settled her down, she didn’t even raise her head when the bangs started, and so the other two paid no mind either. So lucky though, that they are all so good with them anyway!!
      Hugs, Carrie & Pups x
