Cosmo has always had his own, unique set of issues and has never been a very confident dog. Thunderstorms and firework celebrations send him right into a tail spin, putting himself right into the crate on his own. Unfortunately, it looks like a cracking fires bring him to that same level of stress. He literally crawled up my leg – WHILE IN THE STANDING POSITION – to gain refuge from the fire in the fireplace. Poor guy! We need the fire to keep warm! Fires are such a rarity that these consecutive exposures to the flames is bringing him to the brink of insanity. I really do hope this weather will improve sooner than later. We have all had our fill!
