    We desensitized Vegas the first year we had him. Ever since...the noise doesn't bother him. As long as Vegas is calm...so is baby O. Now...Vegas is attracted to the color in the sky. That was driving me crazy. He was outside for over an hour following the smoke and lights across the backyard. Once it got dark, it got worse. The flashing of color in the dark sky was never ending. Then I got smart. I closed the window blinds, pulled the blinds across the slider and turned on all the indoor lights. Once I ruined his fun, Vegas climbed up behind me on the couch and fell asleep. It was like a war zone here. The loud M80 and cannon going off was the worse. Luckily..12pm it all stopped. Silence. I love it when the neighborhood has an understanding.

    Rudy was patrolling the yard barking and looking for the source of th-sunbathing-jpge noise. Had to lock him inside so he wouldn't run himself to death. (big back yard). Mila is Deaf so it didn't even faze her.

    My dogs barked maybe three times in unison and then gave up. I went to bed early so I slept through most of it. My cats looked around trying to figure out where the noise was coming from but were comforted by my presence and so they settled and fell asleep with me.

    @gobronco - cuteness overload! they're such a great pear.

    Our fireworks were on Sunday and my bf took the boys to the park (I was in a different province). As usual nothing fazed Stiggy, he just rolled on the grass like only he can. Punkin actually noticed the fireworks shooting up in the sky and when it went 'boom' he got scared and hid behind my bf. After a little while though he realized that they were harmless and started to relax.

    My boys could care less. If one of the boys would bark at a particularly loud one, then the other two had to get up and run to where the other one was and bark once, then they all settled down. Fireworks and thunder don't bother them, but bring out a plastic bag or the broom and Sebastian goes running in the opposite direction.

    Frank was not happy and barked. Which was so odd because he has experienced fireworks in past and thunder doesn't faze him anymore. I think it was the random "popping" we were getting because he also barks when he hears gunshots in the distance during hunting season. We didn't sleep much but the next day he was tired, so he was super cuddly. Which I love because normally he will pull away if I want to cuddle with him.
