All of us, including Snooter Tooter, made it through Hurricane Irma unscathed (physically – mentally is another story)!
Lucky for us, the storm deteriorated quite a bit and changed paths (more east) before it got to us. We didn’t even lose power which is a miracle.
All of us – animals and parents – are recovering from all of the stress. Some of us aren’t even eating yet. Not me…I’m always hungry.
The person who was supposed to house the chickens, pheasants, and bunnies bailed without ever saying a word to Mom or Dad so they had to be put in bunches of kennels and left inside the house. Do you know how disgusting a room full of chickens, pheasants, and bunnies smells? *gag* Mom thought she was going to have to burn that part of the house down.
Snooter was boarded up in his house that Dad built him and he didn’t have a hair out of place when we got home. He did seem to be in a bit of shock though. He’s much better today.
I have a small confession to make. Of all the dogs, I was the worst behaved. I was losing my little mind. The medicine Mom gave me – I think it was called Xanax – supposedly did the opposite of what it was meant to and I was HYPER! So I was freaking out and I couldn’t stay still. I was SUUUUUPER hungry and thirsty, too.
Here’s some video Mom took:
All of the other dogs were nice and quiet though. Molly and Rudee each got something called Trazodone to stay calm and, believe it or not, Macy stayed calm all on her own! Who knew she had it in her?
Mom walked us all 87 million times during the hurricane. We actually did our business in the rain – even Molly! Mom was very surprised.
We are so thankful we had a house to come home to. We really expected to lose everything. Thank you for everyone who prayed for our safety!!!!
