Portland Air Show

There was a big air show here last weekend, complete with fighter jets buzzing the whole area at 100 feet off the ground, with full afterburners. It's quite an exhilarating experience seeing a fighter do a barrel roll over your house, almost touching the tree tops.

Not so much exhilarating for my four doggos. It wasn't just all the planes; they were setting off car alarms all over the place, not to mention all the extra traffic, honking and other barking doggos.

"Pet, I think those monsters are still out there"

Poor Zoey was convinced we were under attack, and still occasionally looks at the ceiling for the metal monsters she was sure were coming to murder us. I've thought of putting her on doggy Prozac just like her mommy, Spot, but her anxiety is more situational, and more of what I'd consider normal for a Chihuahua.

Ty had a little anxiety, though I think he more wanted to go outside to see what was going on. And Smokey did fine. If there's no food involved, he could care less.

I can only imagine all the little trembling dogs during the air show. It was incredible seeing the Blue Angels do a loop in formation, but I'm glad it's over, and so are all the neighbors ... and their dogs.
