A reminder for the 4th of July
A friend shared a video on facebook today that made my blood boil a bit. I'm sure on some level there's some humor involved, but I have very sensitive ties to the animal world so I saw nothing funny about it. It was while a family was setting off fireworks, the family dog ran out and stole it and ran around the yard with it. Narrowly missing people as it was still going off. Not trying to be Debbie Downer but that family and the dog is very lucky that nothing went wrong.
So.. just sending out a reminder about pets and fireworks. They don't mix. I've had dogs that want to attack them. I've had dogs that are terrified of them. Even if your dog is at ease, the fireworks display is no place for them. Have a wonderful and safe 4th of July!
I know pets are part of our family but dogs don't get enjoyment out of watching fireworks. No really. They don't. That's a human thing.
