A Lightning Storm

One time when I had my puppy farm there was a lightning storm. I looked out into the field to see all my greyhound puppies just standing at the gate looking at the house instead of doing the perfectly logical thing and going to the barn. (they didn't like the barn because it was on the opposite end of the field and they wanted to watch us come and go)

So me in all my stupidity went out into the field and walked across it with all my 8 month old pups around me and lightning striking all around us. I don't mean just one lightning strike. I mean probably around 50 of them - some no more than 10 feet away. I just cringed and slowly walked to the barn because I didn't want my pups to stand out in the rain.

Unfortunately my stupidity didn't end there.

I needed to go to work. So, after a short amount of time, I walked all the way back to my trailer in the storm with the lightning striking all around me. To add insult to injury, every single one of those pups followed me back! They stood out in the rain until I left for work. I don't know how long they were out in the storm after that.
