Why, oh why, do we 'celebrate' independence with sounds of war?
My dog doesn't even like the sound of one of the cats running across the roof!
Luckily, she is very food motivated. Baby carrots, chunks of watermelon, doggie treats, all have helped us through fireworks and thunderstorms.
Now, there are signs that war veterans can place in the yard or in a window that say that a war veteran lives here, please be courteous with fireworks as they can cause flashbacks. Maybe it's time with come up with signs for skittish dogs.
The only legal fireworks in New Jersey are now...sparklers, poppers and snappers. It's frustrating when people go to another state to purchase others for their own 'enjoyment' that put people in pain or other hardship. A bottle rocket nearly blinded my grandson one year, set off by someone in the neighborhood behind our trailer park. I've found spent ones on my roof! So dangerous!
Why can't we just have parades and cook outs and be grateful for peace?
Anyway, I hope it turns out well for everyone here, however you celebrate the Fourth of July or if it's just 'another day' for you...enjoy it!
