Thunder Shirt

Jasper got a T-shirt (please don't mix it up with the brand name that you all recommended).  It's literally just a t-shirt.

We've had a lot of storms this week and he's been wearing it often enough for me to make fun of him.

They make him wear a t-shirt and then tie it tightly around his waist.  He was still scared when wearing it yesterday because they got it on too late.
Also, this is not Jasper being scared.  This is just how he is.

If you know someone who wants a snuggly dog, have them go to and fill out an application.
As for me, this is my spot.

Snuggles for Scratches is my motto.

There are some things you just can't teach.

Hoping for sunny skies,

  1. Regular t-shirts can work fine too, as long as you can get them tight enough. I'm glad it's helping Jasper!

  2. We hope the t-shirt works for Jasper. Phantom had to wear a t-shirt for may weeks after his big cancer surgery and he was so upset about it. He got mega-depressed. That's why we don't think a thundershirt will work for him. Hope Jasper finds a home where there aren't too many t-storms.

  3. We sure hope the shirt works for Jasper! We've had tons of rain, but hardly any thunder at all. It's supposed to actually NOT RAIN this weekend!
    Play bows,

  4. Oh you means Jasper is a dog...I mean him likes to plop down on da hoomans while they is on da puter tryin' to work? Him seems to be awfully comfy round theres.
    Oh yes, what i was really tryin' to say dat I hopes it does him some good (da Tshirt). We ain't afraid of thunders but I has seen dat it can make dogs go all kerazy and drink beers and stuffs.

    Cheetos is cheetos, I don't really has a favorite but I likes da puffy ones bestest. Okays, I guess I do has a favorite then.

    Puddles...da REAL Puddles

  5. I mean da thunder makes dogs do kerazy stuffs...not da t-shirt.
    Must get better typist.


  6. MOL Nora....just between us girls we know Girls rule and boys drool!!!
    That being said we are so sorry Jasper if fearful to thunder. Bless his little heart. He certainly looks like he is a lot of help to your Dad.
    Hugs Madi

  7. Jasper looks so cute and snuggly. I don't like storms either and I cry but I also don't like wearing clothes of any kind so I have to suffer through it. I am glad if it helps Jasper.

    Loveys Sasha

  8. I have heard that even using ACE Bandage will do the job of a Thunder Shirt.

    I think the plain very SNUG T=shirt is a grrrrreat idea. Good thinkin!!!

  9. I've never been bothered by thunder, but there seems to be a lot of doggies who freak out. Glad the shirt helped.

  10. Yep, just tighten and batten down the hatches - make that shirt!

    It worked fur Khousin Merdie when she got all khrazy - of khourse, so did a few 'benadryl' but some pups go HYPER spaz on that stuff!

    It is more an elekhtrikhal charge thingie -
