Sometimes you have to wonder, “What the hell?”
Last night there was a pretty big thunderstorm that came through our little spot in Texas. It wasn’t any different than any other thunderstorm that we’ve had come through, but tonight at about 1:30am, Ursa decided she didn’t like thunderstorms.
Since we have had her, I can’t even count how many storms we’ve had. She has slept through every single one that has hit us. It didn’t matter if it was daytime or nighttime, she totally ignored them. Tonight’s storm though, she decided these things are scary and started whinning and just wouldn’t stop.
I got up at about 1:30am, Ruthanna got up about 2:15am, we both were up about 2:30am but nothing seemed to calm Ursa. Finally about 3:30am, Ruthanna laid down on the couch and Ursa immediately jumped up on the couch with her, laid down and quit whining.
Ruthanna then deided it would be best for the two of them to sleep on the dog couch, as they have done before,
and not on the good couch. Ruthanna didn’t want to give Ursa the idea that now it was ok to get on the good couch and once everyone was settled in, all was ok for about an hour. Then Ursa decided the coast was all clear and got down.
Of course jealous Sadie had to then get up and rest with Mom since Ursa got to do that. Luckily for Ruthanna, that only lasted about 10 minutes before Sadie decided that that really wasn’t that much fun and got on down and Ruthanna could get back to sleep.
Hopefully tonight there won’t be any more thunderstorms and we can all get a good nights rest!
