    Gio HATES fireworks!!! We had them about a month ago and he flipped and ever since then he is scared of everything in the sky... so whenever a plane flies over he barks at it!! And it doesn't help that we live 10 minutes away from logan airport! So since there has been fireworks for the past week ever time I try to take him out the first thing he does is look up in the sky! Everyone at the 4th of July party we went to yesterday found it so funny to watch him bark at every plane that flew over! I hope he will get over this fear soon!

    Howard didn't bark, but he cowered and trembled. He tried to hide behind me every time he heard one. Poor baby! My shar pug just slept :-)

    The only good thing about this extended record high temperatures and no rain weather period we have been having is that most of the fireworks around here that are usually a problem aren't happening. City made it very clear they would not tolerate anyone starting any fires. And were gonna crack down on offenders. So HRH hasn't heard a thing this year.

    But any loud noise sends her scurrying for safety so although I'm looking forward to a break in the drought, I dread her fear when the thunder starts booming.

    Aubie didn't like the loud noises at first, but she calmed down. She was fine unless there was an extra loud bang.

    I actually took Mr.Bruno to a fireworks show with the rest of the Family. It didn't bother him one bit. Thunder and or noise wont spook him. The curtain swaying in the wind however will freak him out. Ha!

    I have not been looking forward for July 4th for fear of all the noise being too much for Tank (7 months), but due to the dry conditions, a ban was placed last week and only those with permits were allowed to shoot them. It didn't stop everyone one of course, but there was less than normal. He and I stayed inside and whenever he did hear a boom, he would look at me and I would just act like it was nothing so soon he didn't seem concerned either. Made it through this one, got a while before the next one

    The boys did okay last night. I tried to "desensitize" them from the noise by taking them outside and walking around a little earlier in the evening with random firecrackers going off here/there. They seemed to settle down pretty good. The party animal that I am was in bed by 9pm w/the boys, and that's when the loud booming began...just an occasional bark from Finn and then all 3 of us were in dreamland.

    Not sure. We left Ellie Mae at home and my parents came by to take her out a couple of times since they are in the same subdivision, so we haven't crossed that bridge yet. She wasn't a fan of the thunderstorms that rolled through yesterday afternoon and tonight though. The rain didn't seem to bother her, but the thunder did.
