I’ll Take the Fifth (Of July)

For selfish reasons–I’m glad the Fourth of July is over. Last night, fireworks explosions carried on, till almost midnight.

Max scratched on the bedroom door, to get out, till it was over. There wasn’t anywhere else to go. Why couldn’t he rationalize the same as humans? “Max, settle down, go to sleep.” My spouse slept through all of it.

All five dogs were affected to some degree. Great-grand-dog Dexter, Greta, Bogart, my grand-dogs, and Max and Maggie, hung out in the basement till bedtime.

I don’t begrudge anyone’s Fourth of July festivities. From this pet owner’s perspective–I’m glad it’s over.

  1. Every November 5th we have the same problem when its Guy Fawkes night, when the nation celebrates a foiled terrorist plot by catholics who set barrels of gunpowder underneath the original palace of Westminster, to blow up the protestant King James the first and his government on November 5th 1605. But because the sale of fireworks happens long before the night in question the morons around here keep the neighbourhood awake for a two to three week period!!!!
