Scared Puppies

Rosa is a rescue mutt who is about twice as big as Po, a cairn terrier (picture Todo). Each of them has a crate in our kitchen where they feel safe. They often sleep in them, and when they start getting rowdy or noisy we say "Crate!" and they trot off to their individual crates.

Yesterday there was terrific lightning and thunder in our neighborhood. I was out in it, waiting for the bus, and the flash and boom were synchronous -- the lightning really was directly overhead. My son went to the kitchen to check on the dogs and this is what he found. Rosa had gone into Po's crate, even though she barely fits in it, and the two of them huddled together through the noise and bright flashes. He took a picture with his cell phone.

I've never seen them do this before.
