Sound Sensitive Dog

I said in my last entry that Tormund hadn't made a mess in the house, so naturally when I came home from work the other day I found that he'd thrown up and had a bit of an accident on the upstairs landing. I don't know when exactly it happened, but Mum said he did get scared by a car coming in and ran upstairs, so we're thinking that's probably what caused it. He seems fine otherwise and has been eating and drinking as usual so I'm trying not to worry too much (easier said than done with me!)

It's funny; we went from having a deaf dog to having a very sound sensitive dog. So many things that were never an issue with Tilly we now have to be careful about. I'm already wondering what we can do to help him cope with all the fireworks on and around Bonfire Night in November.

It's good that we have quiet woods nearby where we can take him for a walk, although even then there are still some noises. He's not bothered by every sound, but when something does spook him he pulls on the lead really hard. That's not great when he's 30kg and very strong! As well as almost pulling me over, I also worried that he was going to hurt himself by putting so much pressure on his neck. So we bought him a harness:


Doesn't he look handsome?

I wasn't sure how he was going to react to it. Tilly would have hated the thing and refused point blank to move with it on. But he was so good. I wonder if he's worn one before, cos he let me put it on him no problem. And then he jumped up and put his paws on my shoulders, which was very sweet. He had no issues walking with it on either and all in all seemed very happy about the situation. But maybe that's just cos he loves going for walks!

And, cos I'm constantly camera happy, have some more pictures of my gorgeous good boy:
