Six Word Saturday…May 22

I’m back….I took last weekend off from blogging and doing SWS.  This week I’m back to join in the fun.  If you enjoy this meme, hop on over to join up at Cate’s place


My six words for this Saturday are:  This dog can predict the weather!

This dog’s name is Junior and he can tell when the weather is going to get bad.  Once when he was a much younger dog, he was caught outside in a tornado.  Since then, Junior is terrified of bad weather. 

If a storm is on the way, but hasn’t reached yet reached our area, Junior starts getting “antsy”.  Once we notice his behavior, and check the weather on television–sure enough we will be under a storm watch or a storm warning.  It’s like he has a sixth sense.

Junior belongs to my daughter and her family, and is an outside dog.  He causes so much ruckus when the weather turns bad, they have to let him inside the house until the storm passes.  His place is usually inside the bathroom.

Poor Junior is getting on in years, and has  heart worm disease.  I don’t think he’ll be with us too much longer.  We’ve become so accustomed to his  weather predictions, we’ll be lost without him.  In the meantime, we’ll love him and heed his advice about the weather–he predicted another storm last night!

***Just a reminder that you can still guess a number between 1 and 100 to win this patriotic wind chime.  I’ll be taking guesses until after midnight EST on Sunday.  The person guessing closest to the number chosen by,  without going over wins.  You can guess a different number each day.  Have a great weekend!  Kathy

  1. Our dog used to do that too. It is amazing how they have that sixth sense.
    It is sad to see them get old and sick. We lost our Poco when he was 12 years ols. He was a good doggie.

    Enjoyed your post.

    Have a good Saturday!

  5. Junior is cute and smart. Dropped by to say Hi on 6 WS. I will follow you. Thanks for sharing.


  6. He is a beautiful dog. I am sorry that he is so sick. I know the sadness that comes with the loss of a loved animal. He is quite the guy with his predictions. Animals are just that way, aren’t they?
