Addie (my husky mix gal) seemed to wake up one day terrified of thunder storms. I can sort of understand, since I feel fear if they're really bad. I would assume no matter how I think I'm acting cool, she senses my fear. I've never babied her or anything during one, tho. Hammie picked up that fear from both of us, so now he's attached to my hip during thunder. BUT...now Addie is suddenly filled with fear hearing gunshots. she is 5 yrs. old, has always lived here, and this is a big hunting area. it took me awhile to even grasp what she was freaking out about (I thought she was sick), and she screams like a little girl. great....big hunting season starts next week. someone is shooting in the woods, and she's a basket case. what can I do??? I certainly have no fear from gunshots, so this one isn't from me. next.......it'll be a plane flying over too low. I also haven't reacted to this new fear by babying her in any way.
