OMG Doc! And why was the dog so scared? Something out there? Could it have come from a jet engine? How about a UFO? Before you shake your head and say, "oh no! Here goes hansa again.lol" My 2 dogs had a run in with something in the empty acre next to us. They were going wild with barking. Scared me. I quickly let them back in and they almost knocked me over coming through the door. They were terrified .....of something.
When you mentioned trying to calm your dog down I could only think about what happened to mine.
