Every Summer for the past two years we have had a solution to Sadie's terrible fear of thunderstorms.
Ever vigilant during the storms, Sadie watches the sky.
It was a fellow Boston Terrier blogger who brought the Thundershirt to our attention. Joe Stains, who sadly is no longer with us. While the Thundershirt can only overcome so much, it has helped Sadie tremendously, especially when storms like this crop up:
(Kind of long, best action starts about 1:20 - I will have you know I risked life and limb on the front porch Sunday night for this video)
I have been filming things around Boston Manor and our area so we will remember some of the more unique aspects of being Florida residents. If I had been braver, or less intelligent, I would have stepped out from the porch so the sky could be more visible. However, since I like to live to tell my tales, I had to settle for watching from the porch.
These storms will be missed by some of us, but Miss Sadie will not be included in that group.

And thank goodness for our new roof!
