My poor puppy (ok, she's almost 3, but she's still my puppy) is terrified of storms. We rescued her about 2.5 years ago and at the time, she had bigger problems than a fear of thunder/lightening. We've overcome all of this issues, but as time has passed, she's become more and more frightened of storms, to the point that she cowers in my lap, shaking from ear to tail. It is heartbreaking, not to mention that she's really too big to be a lapdog, though I'm happy to try to comfort her. Nothing seems to help. She just cowers on my lap,trembling until it's over. Any ideas/suggestions? She's breaking my heart.
