    Will probably stay home and grill... If we do end up going out to watch fireworks, we will have to decide which military base to head to.

    Outside of the military bases, Hawaii is not really big into fireworks for 4 July, especially compared to the fireworks observed during New Years. I remember going to Pearl Harbor one 4 July, and in front of us were some Hawaiian kids. They seemed impressed, and I heard one say "Wow, this is almost like New Years" ... and I remember my first New Years here thinking "Wow, this is like a war zone". The style here is to set off fireworks from your own yard, even the illegal professional sized big stuff.

    I hope you will be posting pics of Mocha in her harness and bandana @ LisaMarie, did you get them from plus size pups?
    @ desertskybulldogs posted a link to some there the other day. They look really cool.

    @JAKEISGREAT I too think @Telly03 was trying hard for the sympathy vote there...it must be hard living in Hawaii

    @JAKEISGREAT we live in a high fire zone and even with a ban on fireworks..unfortunately I haven't figured out how to ban the "IDIOTS" who ignore the law! Grrrrrrrrr!

    I know what you mean, the last two years we were up all night fighting grass fires from fireworks. This year there is a burn ban and a ban on the sale of fireworks here, but I have a feeling we will be chasing grass fires all night long again from people bringing them in from somewhere else. Hopefully no houses will burn.

    Reggie's first Fourth with us.......should be interesting. I think we'll just barbeque and stay close to home.

    My last dog Max (German shepherd/Rottweiler mix) was just terrified with the sounds, I had to drug him up pretty bad and keep him in the garage until things died down.

    I'm curious (anxious?) to see how Reggie will respond to the fireworks this weekend.

    A Border Collie we had a few years ago was afraid of fireworks and loud noises too @Bully Blair.
    Bonfire night was a nightmare we did find eventually that shutting him in a dark room with music playing kept him calm enough to sleep the night away.
