He’s officially completely recovered from his surgery. That’s the good news. The bad news is he’s become an unbridled scaredy-cat when it comes to thunder and lightning. We are somewhat baffled by this in that it’s a new phobia and we can’t figure out why he’s suddenly so scared of thunder (and fireworks). The slightest hint of them and he comes running and panting to find us, shaking horribly. It’s also quite the inconvenience as most of the thunderstorms around here come at night, which means he wakes us up, and keeps us up, until the storm passes. I don’t have the heart to tell him that this behavior would disqualify him as a police dog (particularly military police) which is his real dream job.
