Fireworks And Furkids

Hope will have a quiet place for the Fourth of July.

The Fourth of July means fun and fireworks—but that may not be so fun for your furkid.

Sudden loud noises can frighten dogs. Please keep your furkids away from fireworks, or at least keep them contained.

Even obedient dogs have been known to run away and be lost when they hear fireworks going off. You don’t want that to happen. Preferably, keep your furkid inside.

Fireworks can also cause anxiety and fear. Handle this like you would any fear situation. Don’t indulge in your dog’s fear, but provide a safe place, and maybe some toys and treats, for him.

In other news, Hope goes to the veterinary oncologist this afternoon. Jake and Windy will accompany her to give her moral support. She does better with them around. However, getting three dogs through an automatic door can be like herding cats in a tornado.

Windy, not thrilled with getting up, yawns.

About daysofourdogs

I have owned dogs nearly all my life. Many different breeds, mutts, rescues, and foundlings have found their ways into my heart. I have two dachshunds and a miniature schnauzer now. I hate puppy mills and want them wiped from the face of the earth.
