Happy Independence Day!

Hi Pups and Kitties!

Look at the nice new collar my Mom bought me for a present! Oh, man, I just love getting presents! Its got bones and heartz on it and I think its bewootiful.
The Fourth of July is noted for fireworks and splosions and that is something that really makes me feel scared. So we are not going anywhere today or tonight, just stay home and feel safe. I feel so sorry for dogs that are out on the road alone when the splosions start going off. I hope they all find a safe place to be and not be so scared.
The trouble is that the splosions keep on going tomorrow, too. But by Monday everybuddy will go home and it will be quiet again. Not everybuddy goes home, because we live in a tourist town and our population gets doubled in the summer, but at least most of the Boomers go!
We hope that all of you get to do what you want to do on this Holiday. If you like the Boomies, go enjoy them, and the rest of us will stay home!

Happy 4th July. Too bad about the 'splosions'. Perhaps you could come over to Scotland for the day, it's quiet here. But remember not to visit on Guy Fawkes night (5th November). That's when all the fireworks go off here. I used to really hate all the bangs and screeches, but now I'm quite deaf, it's OK!
Cheers, H.
PS Very smart collar.

Beautiful new collar. I hope you don't get too worried tonight with all the loud noises. It will be over soon. I do hope you have a great weekend even with the noises.

Your new collar is really pretty!

The booms are happening here, too. Mama is home with us. It lasts for a few weeks around here. We live in the country so it's legal for them to shoot them off any time they want. A huge one just happened. It shook our house and Mama said 'SHEESH'. Scary stuff.

We understand the tourist town problem. We love living here and welcome the tourists, but there are moments when we look forward to our quiet months! April is the best month - ski season is over, summer season has not started, and yet the weather is spectacular!
