Hi. I have three dogs: Little Bitty (Bitty), the Chihuahua (mix?), Samwise Gamgee (Sam), who seems like a Beagle/Doberman mix, and Marley, who the shelter said is a Rhodesian Ridgeback/American Staffordshire Terrier mix. Two of them, Sam and Marley, are scared of loud noises. Marley is TERRIFIED even if she just thinks it MIGHT get loud. She's smart, so she knows what fireworks and thunder sound like when they're far away or somehow not as loud as usual. Sam just gets more anxiety than usual (he's pretty much always anxious) when the sound is already loud. Usually, Sam is distrustful of Marley because of her history of aggression (we keep her because she's not a threat to any human life and she would have no chance anywhere else and we love her) and he will often stare at her to upset her. Well, tonight, when it was time to let them outside, there were fireworks that were kind of loud, so Marley wouldn't go out. Sam and Bitty went out. Pretty quickly, Bitty wanted to come back in, so I let her. While I was putting Marley's Thundershirt (a piece of clothing that helps a lot of dogs with anxiety) on her and putting the dog bed in the laundry room so Marley could comfortably be away from the noise, I forgot that Sam was still outside while the fireworks were happening. I feel bad about that, but it was an accident. I closed the door to the laundry room to keep the sound out and let Marley have a break from the other dogs (they all stress each other out sometimes), then I went to let Sam in. Sam had too much anxiety and got somewhat calmer when he saw Bitty was ok. Then got somewhat calmer when he saw I was ok (I guess this was when he just assumed my mom, who lives here, too, was ok lol). Then he went to the spot where the dog bed usually is because Marley is almost always on the dog bed. But she and the bed weren't there. He got more anxious again and started looking for her. I opened the door to the laundry room and when he saw her, he completely calmed down. He was glad that she was ok. He loves her. So cute!
