Morgan here... Just an update on my status. Foster mom is letting me take the reins of the computer first. The last few weeks have been "ruff." I have been terrified of all the thunder boomers, lightning, and fireworks. I don't care that foster mom says they can't hurt me—I still feel they can.
I've had a lot of company lately. Over the 4th we had Kona (she is St. Bernard/Lab/Boxer) stay with us while her family went to the Black Hills. She was fun but wore me out. Guess what... she was trying to hug me all the time. I didn't really like that. She was afraid of the fireworks, too, and was sleeping with foster mom.
We also had Marco and his baby brother Elliot Conner over on the 4th. Elliot is 4 months old and Marco is 5 years old. They are both Goldens, my type of dogs. Marco is afraid of fireworks, too. Elliot didn't even wake up during the noise.
I get along fine with all dogs. But honestly, please make those loud noises stop.
My friend Dexter, who would spend the nights for slumber parties, went to the Rainbow Bridge. I miss him being my friend at night and breakfast partner in the morning. I also miss all the great treats he would get because he wasn't a good eater like I am.
Gotta go. Foster mom wants on the computer now.
As you can see Morgan is terrified of thunder, lightning, and fireworks and last night, rail cars bumping one another on the tracks. I've been medicating with Benedryl when I can catch it in time. Otherwise he pants and paces constantly.
Prior to his friend Dexter passing away we went to stay at Dexter's home with him. Morgan did not do well; he panted and paced from 5:00 pm till 3:00 am. At that time I packed the pups and myself back up and took them home. It was not a good night so he was totally out of his comfort zone. Once we returned home he laid down and slept like an angel.
He does have anxieties and we have very loud children who live two homes over who are screaming and yelling and crying constantly outside. Morgan does not like that; it makes him very nervous.
Other than that, I have nothing new to report. He loves to be brushed and he is definitely shedding tons of hair. He has anxieties and he gets along with other pups, but he prefers a quieter atmosphere without children and loud noises.
