We saw hailstones after year more than 8 years, 8 years because that’s the age of my oldest dog in human years and she had never seen it so after the simple deduction I got the answer.
Hail is a form of solid precipitation. It is distinct from ice pellets (American sleet), though the two are often confused. It consists of balls or irregular lumps of ice, each of which is called a hailstone. Ice pellets (American sleet) fall generally in cold weather while hail growth is greatly inhibited during cold surface temperatures. (borrowed from Wikipedia)
Both of our dogs’ elder Julie and younger Hera who is just two years were super confused why was someone hitting them with cold stones and as a result, they created a ruckus with their barks as they replied to the nonstop fall of the stones as the night fell. next day neither would eat nor reply to any of our calls, they both just slept near the gate confused why would we throw stones at them. Well, that’s the explanation our naive brains formed to explain their behavior as we spent hours explaining we were at no fault, why would we hit such wonderful good girls to them while other humans tried to form a rational explanation of our behavior.
