Five on Friday - Molly Anne and Mills

Thank you for all of your help on yesterday's post about the hardwood debacle in the master bath.  We shall see!  We have to look at pricing etc as well because that's a minor detail! ;)

Hat day at Ms. Becky's. They all got to wear one of the hats she has there for dress up.  This little cowgirl is too cute!

Yall didn't know Mills needed help eating his dinner al fresco?!

This part human is a SAINT!  She was poking at all of his body parts and identifying them the other morning.  I doubt he enjoyed getting poked in the eyes but he didn't care...he just laid there and took it.  Then she got on top of him and pretended he was a horse she was riding.  And then hugged him.  Bless.

Checked on the house yesterday several times - they put the ceiling in the third floor, built the roof and ceiling for the covered porch and started on the front porch.  Those framing guys are amazing.

Something has been up with Mills.  He had never been scared of thunder and lightening until last year but now it's become ridiculous.  Last night we were up at 11:30, 12:30 and 2:30 because of RAIN.  Rain yall!!!  Not even thunder!  He was so scared and panting in my face while I was in bed.  I ended up putting him in his condo because mama has got to sleep!  He loves his condo too but he wasn't thrilled about getting in there.  Poor buddy.

Pretty jealous of this one's closet for this summer!

We have been enjoying music class every Thursday since last September but I think we are going on break for the summer and will do something different.  Debating going back to swim class or maybe we just go to our neighborhood pool during that time?  Anyone have any thoughts?

You may want to look into getting Mills a thunder shirt. It hugs dogs and makes them feel safe. Sort of like a drug free anti-anxiety option. It works wonders for a lot of dogs. My mom's golden used to wear his often!

Aww, I love hat day! We're thinking about joining a pool for the summer because time in the water is just so much fun!

As a veterinarian I see Golden's get terrible anxiety when storms are accompanied by wind. The panting Mills was doing is equivalent to you or I having a panic attack - you don't want him to be isolated or alone during this time. He needs help through the anxiety just like you or I would. I support the idea of the Thundershirt, which will give him positive compression therapy. But if it doesn't work I strongly urge you to speak to your vet about a low dose anxiety med that you can give him when he is experiencing this trauma. It is a safe and effective way to ensure your beloved family pet is not suffering through these episodes.
