We may or may not get a hurricane in the next couple days. We won't go over all the things woo should do because there are lots of site telling woo how to prepare - go read them. But, I, Miss Moo, will address one problem: the wind! Anything not secured will blow around. So its important to take steps to secure loose objects.
Jack will demonstrate what happens when the wind blows unsecured objects around.
Note: Jack is a trained professional, don't try this at home!
Step 2: Make sure you have all the moving parts contained.
Pretty scary, isn't it? Takes the breath right out of ya!
Now Jack and I will demonstrate the proper steps to take to avoid loose objects blowing around in a hurricane.
Step 1: Get a good grip on the loose Siberian.
Step 3: Overcome any objections. After all, its for his own good.)
Step 4: Flatten both Siberians to the ground and hold securely in this position till the hurricane passes.
Whew! By the time the hurricane passes, woo may be exhausted from all your efforts, so plan to have yourself a nice long nap!
On a more serious note, our southern Siberian furiend Maya Marie's mom called our mom with a few tips on surviving hurricanes. And they should know, they made it thru Katrina & several others! We learned one of the biggest problems with hurricanes is that they carry all manner of air-born yucky stuff & bacteria from wherever they originate. As the hurricane rains fall, all this mess gets dumped onto your stuff and pollutes every puddle and blade of grass. After hurricanes, you MUST prevent your pups from licking up rainwater & eating anything outside, and its a good idea to wash off your pups feet every time they come in after going outside. I guess its pretty common for paws to develop all manner of problems after a hurricane does its dirty work! Those are pretty good tips! Many thanks to our furiends! One last tip of our own- make sure woo have plenty of Happy Hearts treats on hand fur emergencies!
Hope this helps everypup prepare in the event woo actually do get a hurricane.
Til next time,
A-roos to yous and Toodle-Woo!
Jack a-roo & Miss Moo
