My fosters just thought that I should report this.
Last night while my best buddy Stormy Sky (irony here) and I were walking our people through the valley a pop-up thunderstorm hit. We just so happened to be at the far end of our walk when suddenly the lightening started popping. Thankfully we are in a valley with LOTS of old-growth tall pines and hardwoods so we aren't the best lightning rods around. We walked faster to get home but my foster sister also called home to get us picked up by Mom's taxi and out-a-there.
After we got home the lightening really started booming very near our house. The rain came too (yea, we really needed that). We lost power as well for a bit. Then it finally calmed down.
Why is this story cool. Because my foster dad took note that both on the walk and in the house when the lightening was FLASHING and the thunder was BOOMING I was unfazed and remained calm, cool, and collected. I never reacted. They were so happy by this one more example of what makes me a great companion.
Just thought I'd share.
Interested? Remember, put in your application (link below) to BBR.
One additional item of note. I am actually living in Upper Alabama (Huntsville area) and not in Montgomery AL where Petfinder has "An adoptable dog in Montgomery, AL" listed for Bama Bully Rescue . That may help you see me if you are near my home.
Hey world, I passed my adoption evaluation today! I showed no food or toy aggression. I was real friendly to the evaluator Mr. Richard. He was nice, I got a great big bowl of dry and wet dog food mixed together to have breakfast. He played with my bowl and me while I ate but I was good and showed no aggression (of course, why would I bite the hand that fed me such good stuff?). He did a pinch test and played with my toes. He smacked the metal bowl to the ground behind me and I turned to investigate (remember I am always curious). But I was not overly startled/rattled like I would have been when I came out of the shelter. He gave me a new rope chewy to play with plus a rawhide and a ball. And, he let me snuggle up on him which is always my favorite.
Oh, and after investigating, my fosters are thinking I am some kind of American Bulldog mix. That's just a guess though. No matter what, I am a good, and handsome, boy, eh?
Hey folks. I had a rough day today. Why do people think they have to give a guy like me baths? And then they take pictures of the embarrassing situation. How'd they like it if I did that to them? Well I suffered through it and was the best boy I could be, despite the indignity of it. Since they took pictures I figured I might as well share them. And I'll admit (slightly) that afterwards I felt real good and look great! So, you get to see them also at the end.
Next thing we plan is VIDEO. I'm sure I'll be a star in no time. Hollywood, where do I sign?

Did I volunteer for this? NOT!
How can I escape? Hmmm.
Guess I just have to hunker down.
Yea, that's what I think of all this!
OK, there's nothing left to soap up folks!
It's about time we finish this task I think.
Oh, that's cold! But it's a hot day. Everything in balance.
Are we done yet people? Wahoo! I think they said this is it!
