This used to be one of my favorite holidays, because I love fireworks, but since I've got dogs now it has moved down on my list a bit.
This is just a warning to dog owners to watch your dog if you are going to be around anywhere that fireworks will be present. The last thing you need to do is make your puppy gunshy because of a careless night of fireworks.
Both of my dog's are not the least bit gunshy, but I don't take any chances with fireworks, because that is a ton of sqealing, exploding, and other such stuff that doesn't sound quite like a 12 gauge. I put mine in a crate and turn a radio up really loud so it drowns out the sound. This worked last year, so this is what I'll be doing again this year.
I thought about this last night because some kids were already shooting them off on my street. Have a good fourth and remember what it's really about.
