White Dog does not like thunderstorms; the noise and flashes frighten her. When a monster storm kicked up during dinner, she quickly attached herself to Steve's side where she felt safe. White Dog squished herself tightly between us as we watched television and the rain continued after the meal but it became obvious that the poor girl had to take a potty break. She stood with her nose just lifting the dog door until she had no other choice but to go out. She dashed out (we could almost hear her relief) and was back in 30 seconds carrying one of her beef bones. Hopping back on the bed, White Dog put her bone against my leg to begin chewing. Suddenly I felt something wet and slimy on my skin. A snail had attached itself to the bone and it was stretching to move onto my hand! YUCK!!! Everyone jumped at my disgusted scream...and then laughed at my "girly-ness"...Steve came to my rescue and took the snail and threw it out of the patio door. White Dog wondered what the fuss was about.

Poor White Dog AND poor White Dog's mom!

The aspekht of surprise is what results in the shrieks!

Hope the weather is better today!

Rainy days and nights are no fun! Yikes, my Mommy would have freaked out at the snail too. Thank goodness for Daddy's to the rescue!

Snails huh? snails and baby slugs like to come in our house happily attached to ben's 'skirt'. However, in our house, dad is the squeamish one, and mom laughs and removes said slug. She says she's seen much worse at work than little slugs.

Ewwww! We're with you, Mom - those things are gross!

Siku, I, too, am really scared of storms - fortunately we don't get many, but when we do, I do the pee dance for as long as I can so that I don't have to go out in it. When I do have to go out, I make my whole family come with me.
