Danny and Thunder


I am fearless. I am Danny the Dog and (to be redundant) I fear nothing. I chase squirrels chickens, raccoons, ducks and of course, cats. However, there is one thing that kind of gets to me, and that is thunder. I don’t know why that is. My human, whose name is Andrew, told me I should go to a doggie psychiatrist and have a past life regression. He said maybe in a past life I had a run in with Thor, the god of thunder. Did I ever tell you that Andrew is an idiot?

Usually I have very little to do with Andrew. I take him for a walk a couple of times a day. I allow him to feed me and give me treats, but for the most part he goes his way and I go mine. But when it thunders, I want to be as close to him as possible. He’s always on the computer. He went nuts a few years ago and threw the television out the window and he hasn’t replaced it yet. So there he sits, staring at the computer screen day after day. He tells me he’s trying to write, but I know better. Anyway, back to me.

So when it thunders I crawl up on his lap and come between him and his precious computer. But I have to hand it to the old reprobate, he stops what he’s doing, puts his arm around me and tells me not to worry.

As soon as the storm passes, I jump down and go back to ignoring him and he goes back to whatever it was he was doing. He was probably on a dating site begging some poor female to go out with him.

The above picture was taken during the height of a thunderstorm. I want you all to know that I usually don’t look so forlorn. Now if you will excuse me, there’s a mother duck and her babies swimming by our boat (do ducks swim?), and I must bark at them. After all, this is my turf and I must defend it to the last bark because I am fearless.

  1. Danny you are simply the best, better than all the rest…it’s a song Danny and it should have been written for you. I love your sense of humor – great story!


  2. Danny, maybe some day you will meet Mauï. Like you, she is fearless, but being a female, she can also handle storms! So if it ever thunders when she’s around, she’ll comfort you and you won’t have to interrupt Andrew’s dating attempts!


    1. Thanks Louise. I look forward to meeting Maui, but if it thunders when she is around, I’ll still go to Andrew. I have to make him feel needed because he sure isn’t going to get lucky on any of those dating sites he is so found of.
