Yep. Our dog dislikes thunder and fireworks, but the "low battery" alarm from the smoke detectors *really* drives him nuts

Our Labrador is terrified of thunder. And then there's the shooting range, range ninja central, across the river that becomes very clear when the leaves fall in autumn.

HomoHabilis: Don't be scared back in May of 2018.

Damn, they've been under that table for a really long time.

Kids and dogs are my favorite people.

My dog hates the fireworks and thunder (And things that sound close, like when someone drops a sheet of plywood onto a pile or something), but you can't get her to come to you. She finds a place that is "her" place in the house, and she won't leave. If you want to comfort her, you have to go to her, period.

I have a Great Pyrenees that watches over my goats. He is awesome at his job, in addition to being an all-around sweetheart. But fireworks, gunfire or really loud thunder? He nopes out of the yard and comes to the house.

My cat used to, if asleep, wake up from thunder or other loud noises and meow at me like it was my fault.  Then he would huff, roll over and go back to sleep.  If he woke up again from the sounds he'd walk over and bite my foot.

Saying "it's not my fault" got a glare and he'd stomp out of the room muttering to himself and go sleep on my bed instead.

I used to have a big sweet chocolate lab (that I rescued when he was 3) who carried a big beef thigh bone around in his mouth like a cigar. One night, I'd been asleep for a couple of hours when a big storm blew through. I was dreaming I was standing in the rain, with drops hitting my face. I woke up to see Hunter sitting next to me, the bone in his mouth and drool pouring out the end right onto my face. He was shaking like a leaf and scared. I wiped the drool off my face, and hugged him tight till he fell asleep. My vet later told me that I could slip him some Benadryl in a treat to calm him down. I've since kept Benadryl and Velveeta on hand at all times.

Poor pooch. My old golden used to try to hide underneath me in a storm. Thinking of her when I wrote this... 

Oh God Oh God Hide Me from the Horrible Noise

Nice reference, Subby!
