My Thundershirt came over the weekend. My jury’s out. Her’s is, too. Here’s what it looks like unfolded.
Here’s another view:
It’s got lots of Velcro as you can see. Great for getting a perfect fit. It came with a little storage bag that’s kind of cool. Nice logo. But, the instructions for how to put it on and when and how to wear it are on the Website, not in the package. (So, just know that if you get one for yourself.)
OK….wait for it…. here’s what it looks like on:
This is me while the vacuum cleaner was running upstairs. (The “bad machine” is what We call that thing.) I hate it. And while I can’t say that I was any calmer in my Thundershirt, I wasn’t any worse.
I still hunkered on the floor, beside Her chair.
See, you have to get used to it before you expect it to work. So, over the weekend, I wore it a couple of times. I think it’s hard to walk in, personally. And hard to go up and down steps. It’s not that it was too tight, but, I’m a Scottie, for heaven’s sake. We don’t take kindly to change. Some of us don’t anyway. And I’m one of them. And most of us are very particular about our furs. I don’t want mine messed with unless I’m on the grooming table. And this thing constricted my furs. (But, that’s what it’s supposed to do.)
I guess I’ll get used to it. I hope so…. got some FIREWORKS tomorrow night and the next night after the baseball games. And before they shoot off the fireworks, they shoot off A CANNON before the game. A CANNON!!! (I know I live in Civil War Land, but really, A CANNON??? Hey, remind me to tell you a Civil War story….)
Wish me luck.
