Is it over?

Let me tell you something, Pups and Kitties, this weekend was a real bummer for me. Fireworks are legal here in Minniesnowda and it started on Friday the 3rd, with the pop,pop,popping and then on Saturday it went all day and much of the night. We even got lots of noise on Sunday.
My Mom thinks I was out on the road last year at this time, so maybe thats why I am so scared of it all, but I don't know what the days were when I was running. I do know I found a nice new hiding place in the utility room. Its got boxes in it, and I just get behind them and that helps me.
My Mom trys to calm me by talking to me, but about the time I start feeling better, BOOM, and I am scared all over.
BUT ITS OVER! And I am very happy for that! I know lots of you other Pups and Kitties, were real scared too, and I am happy for you that it is over.
My Mom says not too long ago, fireworks were illegal in our state and people could get in trouble for shooting them off. I wisht it was still that way.
I am happy for all of you who had a good time on the 4th and enjoyed the celebration. But I know lots of dogs, like me, who really suffered through it.
My Mom says tomorrow will be even better and I am glad of that.

We're sure that they were really bad by you because of where you live. Did they scare Ali too?

We had boomies on the 3rd and the 4th too. Then neighbors gave Dad a box of them but he made them take them back because he knows that they scare me.

Awww Stella ~ hope you made it out okay.. It's a scary dog week end for us when boomies are involved huh!? We had them all 3 nights too not bad though - they are not legal but we got some wild 2 leggers that dont listen 2 the law. Mama tried to tell me, "it's okay Belly.." but I wasn't listening to a word of it!

Oh poor poor Stella, I am so sorry you had such a bummer of a weekend.
I have an idea. Why don't all the dogs in the USA who hate fireworks come over to visit their Scottish blogging pals for 4th July. And then we could come over to see you lot over the Pond on Guy Fawkes night, 5th November, when all the nasty bangs go off here in the UK?
Think about it.
Cheers, H.

I did not know that this weekend was such a upsetting time for dogs until I started blogging. They are Ok as long as you don't get too close, Stella.
But if you want, let the 2 leggers think you're scared and then when it's over hint that an ice cream blizzard would really help calm your nerves.
Works every time.

Stella, we are so sorry you were so upset by the fireworks, but we are sure Mom tried really hard to make you feel better. They are illegal in our city, they post signs everywhere that police will enforce the law, but they still shoot them off and nothing ever changes:(

Woos, the OP Pack

Glad the bang bangs are over for you. How does Ali-Z find them?

Wooo I am glad it is over too, I was never out on the street, but the psycho border collie was, he is scared of thunder too, but I am usually brave, except for this weekend. It was too scary, I think the world was ending....

The brightest part of your story was that it prompted me to go back to your very first post and read it (since we have only met you a few months ago). We did not realize how recent it was that you were in the slammer. Since most of The Herd has some experience with the slammer, we really salute your mom for taking you in. You look much better than your old slammer picture!

So as scary as the fireworks were, you had a mom this year trying to comfort you - and that we think is awesome!!!

Tracey and Huffle said...

Fireworks are illegal in Australia so maybe next 4th of July you should come stay with me. I hope Ali Z was okay too.

I am glad you survived the holidays. Not fun for you.


Steve, Kat, & Wilbur said...

I'm glad you survived the fireworks. Wilbur hid in the closet behind all the clothes. Maybe you should try that next time.

Hi Stella!

Don't worry about what to wear to the wedding - Mommy can put you into a gorgeous dress if you like!

Your pal (and Rosie's hubbie),

Hi, Stella!
Sounds like you did not have the best of the weekends, but thankfully is over!
Take care
Kisses and hugs

Dear Stella
We think that fireworks should be outright banned! There have been dogs here in South Africa who have impaled themselves on pallisade fenses in their efforts to get away! Its truly heartbreaking. Why do we have this human madness, I ask...surely the money could be directed elsewhere?
Poor Stella. You and our Tammy should get together. No amount of tranquillizers help her when the fireworks get going.
