420 therapy

Post by ckranz » Thu May 22, 2014 1:44 pm

I've noticed of the past several months that when the radio is playing Bob Marley My anxious girlie gets very calm and relaxed. Chloe is getting older and it seems that when kids are screaming about in surrounding yards it really causes her quite the distress....to the point where she is afraid to go into the backyard. She absolutely refuse to potty there...she has not gone inside but she has this whining noise that hits that same nerve as nail across a chalkboard.

We have regular "potty" walks to take care of that. Its just that the screaming kids really seem to make her uncomfortable (unless she can see them and get over to them to make them feel better) unless Bob Marley is on the radio. Note we have tried other music and it is very specific to Bob.

Her favorite tunes seem to be

Redemption Songs
Buffalo Soldier
and No Woman no Cry

How interesting - and how useful too :D I wonder if she's like other reggae artists?
