A few days ago, in Austin, the wild winds started howling.
Then, thundering and lightning continued.
Then, it started pouring.
The boys were wondering why Rainbow always seeks out a spot under my desk when it thunders.
They are surprised that she doesn’t go to them when she is seeking a safe haven during the thundering.
I am surprised too.
The boys are the ones that play with her, cuddle with her and give her a belly rub.
I do the bare minimum – nag them to give her water, food, treats.
Why does she seek safe haven under my desk?
Perhaps, she thinks that the thunder outside can be combated only by a loud voice like me.
