Basset Hound Seeks Safe Haven

According to what I heard from neighbors, today was suppose to be the storm of the century in our area. Thunder storms, tornadoes, heavy rain, high winds! I had no idea.

Fortunately, dire predictions were incorrect and the severe weather did not materialize. But, we did get some heavy rain and thunder this morning.

My Basset Hound, Hunter, doesn't like thunder. He gets all upset and seeks a comforting spot in the house to ride it all out.

When the thunder started this morning, I heard him running around (nails clicking on the hardwood) trying to get to one of his safe havens. Unfortunately for him, he couldn't get to any of the places where he finds comfort:

- Playroom (under the table it's safe). Door closed.

- Master bedroom closet. Door closed.

- Standing shower in master bathroom. Darn, door closed again!

So where did I find him when I went looking?

Basset Hound in Bathtub

I couldn't believe it. He jumped into the bathtub in the hallway bathroom! I didn't even know he was capable of getting in there.

Can't get in for a bath. But thunder, no problem!


I'd love to read your Basset Hound stories and I'm sure others would too. Click to learn how to share a story and photos.
