|This is what a few friends of mine are doing for their dogs on that day. They'll be home with them and will have all the windows closed, the t.v. on, fans blowing at full blast and music going in another room.
Creating enough noise hoping to drown out the big booms.
This is Moose's first too and in the neighborhood next to me, they've already started settin' off M-80's and thus far Moose hasn't reacted. Firecrackers at a distance seem to be ok too. What has me worried are the whistling type fireworks.
Although they're illegal in our city, people will set them off in the street and that's when I'm hoping Moose just rides it out.
I'll also be doing all the above to drown out the sounds.
One friend has a dog who just goes nuts. She's a Dane and once she's wigged out, it's just too much. So I suggested to him that he pile the dogs in the car and he and his wife just drive around starting when it starts getting dark. That way the dogs won't hear a thing except the radio and road noise.
My heart breaks for the poor, poor dogs who live next door or near by from the dope who's setting off the M-80's. I'm sure those neighborhoods have lots and lots of lost dogs that night.
