Fourth of July 2017

Fourth of July 2017
or "Fireworks Shmireworks"

Happy Fourth of July!
All dog owners worry about their pups during this holiday.  Of course we were unsure of how Scout would react to the fireworks--especially because we live on the hill above the stadium where the pyrotechnics are done.  For whatever reason, our mayor decided to do them on Sunday night and Scout was very good.  She was apprehensive at first but eventually settled in her bed and watched them going off out the window.  She seems more curious than anything about them and made me go out late last night so she could investigate.  I know I am lucky this year but that doesn't mean she won't react differently the next holiday.  But so far so good.

Today we are just going to hang out, visit Mom early (because of folks doing fireworks, Greta IS afraid and I don't want Scout to learn by association), and chill out with neighbors.

I hope you all have a safe and happy holiday!

Happy Glorious 4th to you and thanks for mentioning our 150th anniversary. Yes, we are good neighbours and I sincerely hope nothing will ever change that! Our dogs bark at the thunder claps which has been happening a lot lately; I think fireworks would be the same.

So glad Scout isn't afraid! My aunt's cat is - they had one go off, and the cat jumped up in the air, and left a little present on the couch, lol.
