Waiting Out the Storm: A Lesson from My Puppy
On a day filled with thunderstorms and torrential rains, we sit in the bedroom. Clementine, my 11 month old puppy, is curled in a ball at my feet. The television news warns viewers this storm could produce hail and possibly tornado activity. Stay inside! Take cover! Threats to life and property!
Clementine remains perfectly still, simply curled up at my feet. As the thunder booms and the lights flicker, she lifts her head, looks around, and gently snuggles back against my toes. She is not afraid.
