happy 4th!

while america is celebrating it's day of independence with "bombs bursting in air" remember that your pooch does not necessarily share your enthusiasm for this day. did you know that more dogs get lost on the 4th of july than any other day? when you are planning your festivities, don't forget about fido. if your dog is anything like bailey, you're gonna have your hands full trying to keep them calm. global animal put together a list of how to keep your dog calm during fireworks that may help you.

even though fireworks are illegal in my city, there are still the knuckleheads that think the law does not apply to them and they light screaming, popping and booming fireworks. this sends bailey into a tizzy. for goodness sake, bailey gets scared if we drop a paperclip on the floor! ya, the 4th of july is definitely not one of our favorite holidays. how does your dog handle the 4th of july? do you have any calming secrets?

until we meet again my friends, stay safe-


  1. Happy 4th of July, have a nice holiday!

  2. You look so cute with your patriotic tag. I hope this evening is no too scary for you. I don't love the fireworks, but I don't freak out and go nuts. Mom turns on the a/c, a loud fan, keeps the volume up on the tv, and gives me a Kong filled with peanut butter to keep me distracted.

  3. Happy 4th of July, Bailey!

    Stay safe ...
