    Sheldon doesn't seem to be effected by the loud noises but he freaks out if anything is out of place we redid the kitchen and for a week he stood in the kitchen and barked at the bare wall like it was going to gobble him up. I have video some where.

    *snork* Someday I will tell you about my career traveling with the carnival. Yes. I was a "carnie" for a brief summer! But back to the matter at hand, last night was ROUGH. And I am putting it mildly. Mr. Boom Boom aimed his fireworks show my direction so the dogs had a front row seat to sound AND visual display, there in the master bedroom. Bo did better than Bea. She was fit to be tied. Bo kept looking at me like, "Make it STOP." Poor boy. I don't know how much that dude spent on fireworks but his display rivaled that of any local municipality's display. Just when I think he was "winding down" here'd come another BOOM and a glorious shower of color in the sky. Incredible. At one point, it seemed as though a neighbor down the way (directly behind my neighbor, Bob's) was attempting a "fireworks contest" of sorts with my neighbor. So that was fun.

    Next year I am going to rent a cabin (hell, a shack would be fine) in the woods somewhere after I google "QUIETEST 4th" and "Prison terms for fireworks users" and most importantly, "dog friendly". There has to be somewhere to get away from these things.

[ I look forward to not going again this year ] You would think that would be enough but oh no after that some folks will scamper back home and try their own mini versions. And folks that didn't buy any fireworks would usually grab their firearms and shoot several rounds, but with the high price of ammo this year it may curtail some of that but I ain't betting on it. Why not just buy a case of beer and watch a rerun of the Patriot or Saving Ryan's privates?
    I agree 100%... I heard stuff going off till 12am last night!!! I heard gunfire too... I gave our doggies Kong's stuffed w/peanut butter & we turned up the TV. Winston did great, could care less he was interested in stealing Roxie's Kong more than anything else!!! Lol

    HOLY CRAP!!! Come stay with me.... nothing, not a boom. I heard a few off in the distance, but the pups did not even twist an ear.

    It was pretty quiet here too we have an ordinance in our town that outlaws the use of fireworks in town unless done by a pyrotechnics professional meaning they have to be licensed in this state for pyrotechnics.

    Love has a name and its name is Sheldon!!!<3

    It got a bit crazy here, I live right by the beach in a very active neighborhood. The tv and radio did drown out a lot, but the mortars were going off all around us. Lol I felt like I was trapped in a bunker with her. The good news was, she didnt cower or shake at all. She just went into guard mofe a few times and told those fireworks how she felt! Each time I redirected her amd she was fine. I didnt dare take her outside though.

    I hope the rest of you had an easy night!
    Everyday I see an improvement. Everyday she respects and trusts me even more. I'm honored that she chose me...

    This sounds like me up until a few years ago. Now it is just another day off from work for me to either spend on the boat or just have an old fashioned BBQ with our friends.
