Fireworks

It’s only a couple of days away from the fourth of July. Ugh. I guess a lot of people like fireworks, but at our house we really don’t. I’d rather use leisuretime vip and get away during this time of year. However, we probably couldn’t take the dogs. And it’s the dogs that I really want to get away from all the noise.

Angel hates the fireworks the most. She pants and paces around the house. Usually ends up in the basement standing around looking awful. She doesn’t panic. She doesn’t run around. Instead she just calmly paces to show her stress. Poor girl. We tried Rescue Remedy on her, but it didn’t help. So today I went to the vet and got something stronger. We used it last year and it helped her a lot. Just made her drowsy and she slept through.

We already had fireworks last weekend. And I’m sure we’ll get more all week. And here in Utah we have the 24th, which is the State version of the holiday, so it gets to happen all over again. 🙁

  1. Here in Canada, we’ve just suffered through the Canada Day long weekend, mere weeks after the Victoria Day weekend. They take it to extremes – each night, and some times during the day and the boys all wonder ‘why are they shooting at us?!’ ‘I promise I’ll be good!’

    Its moments like this that even the best reraised dog becomes a rescue all over again.

    what did you use last year?

  3. Hi Mare.. yeah true, even the best reraised dogs can fall apart during the awful fireworks. I’m glad your week is over. I will have to go look at the bottle to see what we have, I forgot, but it worked last year and we got the same stuff this year. 🙂
