I saw this on I heart Dogs and thought it was so cute I wanted to share. The last one is the best. :eek:

LEASH: A strap which attaches to your collar, enabling you to lead your person where you want him or her to go.

DOG BED: any soft, clean surface, such as the white bedspread in the guest room or the newly upholstered couch in the living room.

DROOL: Is what you do when your persons have food and you don’t. To do this properly you must sit as close as you can and look sad and let the drool fall to the floor, or better yet, on their laps.

SNIFF: A social custom to use when you greet other dogs. Place your nose as close as you can to the other dog and inhale deeply, repeat several times, or until your person makes you stop.

GARBAGE CAN: A container which your neighbors put out once a week to test your ingenuity. You must stand on your hind legs and try to push the lid off with your nose. If you do it right you are rewarded with margarine wrappers to shred, beef bones to consume and moldy crusts of bread.

BICYCLES: Two-wheeled exercise machines, invented for dogs to control body fat. To get maximum aerobic benefit, you must hide behind a bush and dash out, bark loudly and run alongside for a few yards; the person then swerves and falls into the bushes, and you prance away.

DEAFNESS: This is a malady which affects dogs when their person want them in and they want to stay out. Symptoms include staring blankly at the person, then running in the opposite direction, or lying down.

THUNDER: This is a signal that the world is coming to an end. Humans remain amazingly calm during thunderstorms, so it is necessary to warn them of the danger by trembling uncontrollably, panting, rolling your eyes wildly, and following at their heels.

WASTEBASKET: This is a dog toy filled with paper, envelopes, and old candy wrapper. When you get bored, turn over the basket and strew the papers all over the house until your person comes home.

SOFAS: Are to dogs like napkins are to people. After eating it is polite to run up and down the front of the sofa and wipe your whiskers clean.

BATH: This is a process by which the humans drench the floor, walls and themselves. You can help by shaking vigorously and frequently.

LEAN: Every good dog’s response to the command “sit!”, especially if your person is dressed for an evening out. Incredibly effective before black-tie events.

BUMP: The best way to get your human’s attention when they are drinking a fresh cup of coffee or tea.

GOOSE BUMP: A maneuver to use as a last resort when the Regular Bump doesn’t get the attention you require…..especially effective when combined with The Sniff. See above.

LOVE: Is a feeling of intense affection, given freely and without restriction. The best way you can show your love is to wag your tail. If you’re lucky, a human will love you in return.

That's adorable! If anything, and I'm trying to remember all of the Rotts reactions, I don't think any of my Rotts were intimidated by thunder, if anything they might bark at it in defiance. The Chihuahua is another story... if the ceiling fan in the attic makes too much noise he starts trembling, 4th of July is a tough holiday for him and thunder might as well be fireworks in terms of his reaction to them. (Yet he will jump at the Rotts faces snarling if thinks they are invading his space... and I think having courage with a creature whose head is as big as you is pretty impressive. )

Both my Rocky and Bella bark at a thundering sky in defiance like your's but Johnny and Ringo were deathly afraid of thunder. They had to wear thundershirts and be kept really close if it was New Years eve. I'd be surprised at the small spaces Ringo could wedge himself to hide from noise.

I like the sofa described as a napkin because that is something I see Bella do everyday when we come in from our walk.

And Rocky did cause a few bicycles to almost end up in the ditch. I like to run across something like this that makes me remember things about my dogs.
