The morning after

We conned Maggie last night into an early bed time.
Our logic was that if we were all tucked up in bed when the fireworks started, she may not become quite so distressed as we would be together in darkness.
Sometimes this works with thunder and she will stay tight to me as she shakes.

We were awoken by the sound of rain, which has continued through the night, and to be honest, I couldn’t be bothered to get out of my warm cosy bed with a contented Hubby and Maggie either side giving it buzz saw ZZzzzzs to find out what the time was.
dog bedzzssThere were no fireworks afterall last night.
If it was down to the weather, I bet they wished they’d had their display at 8pm.

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have recently lost our beloved dog Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney, and now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of my GSD so had hers done too. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

    I bet you’re glad the fireworks didn’t happen!!

    • If they did, we missed them as they were so quiet, and Maggie didn’t stir at all until about 5 this morning, so they must’ve cancelled. On a serious note though, I hope it wasn’t because the birthday person had been taken ill.

    Mother Nature to the rescue! Stop those insensitive humans from frightening all the animals!

  3. I wondered about a postponement myself and maybe without notice.
