Many Moms and Dads will know just how stressful some natural phenomena and certain events can be for pups.
Weather conditions like lightning or thunder storms, celebratory events such as fireworks set off during holidays, and any other sources of loud, sudden sounds with no apparent source can be incredibly alarming for pups. If we can get scared by fireworks going off even though we know what they are and what they do, what more an unknowing pup?
Dad had noticed Millie the Beagle pup seemed a little stressed today. This was presumably because of the lightning storm they had experienced earlier that morning. Dad decided to try figuring out how stressed Millie is with a stress indicator he found at Walmart.
Of course, because the stress test was designed for human use, this doesn’t quite work very well for Millie. But hey, at least Dad had some fun trying!
