Yesterday I showed y’all some of the fireworks.
If you look closely in the photos above and below, you can see the end of the pier and the base of the trees beside it. (Just to the left of the watermark)
For me it is the same as if I was at the fireworks display and helping to set them off.
In addition to the ones you see, there are fireworks on each side of the house hidden from view by trees. Unfortunately, not seeing doesn’t mean not hearing.
Here at the shore the fireworks started on Thursday night. The big finale was Saturday, July 4th. A few firecrackers, not fireworks displays, were still around Sunday night.
I was a very unhappy fellow on Saturday night. The main show was across the water where two families were competing and another big display was nearby. These were being answered from homes on our side.
We could see the displays across the water, but not much beside us. By beside us, I mean just next door. Next door on both sides of the house. On the one side some actually came through the trees and over our roof. My Human got frightened that they would set our house on fire.
The sounds were so loud that I started to shake. At first I tried to hide in the shower. When that didn’t work I went down the hall and hid in my crate.
My Human knew this would be difficult for me and had Vets+Best Comfort Calm ready for me. I took the recommended dose of chewable tablets one hour before and then another dose when the fireworks started.
All weekend I walked around with my tail hanging. It was not a fun weekend.
Y’all come on back!
