Our dog, Lucy, is deathly afraid of thunderstorms and firecracker pops. She would nervously pace the house every time a storm came or on the Fourth of July, virtually inconsolable, shaking and cowering until the noise stopped.</p><p>Then a friend told us about the Thundershirt. It’s basically a wrap-around for dogs that attaches with Velcro and somehow provides them the comfort they need to make it through the rumbles and explosions of our violent Kansas storms. The Thundershirt has saved the day for Lucy.</p> Fri, 09 May 2014 10:00:00 +0000 Richard Crowson 34153 at http://kmuw.org The Glory Of The Thundershirt Richard Crowson: We Need A Legislature of Shockers! http://kmuw.org/post/richard-crowson-we-need-legislature-shockers <p></p><p>Lucy can’t get over us human beings.

Our Airedale Lucy came bounding into my office to comfort me.
