After the neighborhood kids REALLY get going, Pip doesn't want to go out to pee, and he barked a little, but otherwise was fine.

Maisy didn't act any different.

Squash had the time of his life... WHEEEEEE THEY ARE MAKING NOISE WITH NOISE MAKING THINGS ZOOOOOOOMMMIEEEEEESSSS. :/

Gwen was terrified. I found some of her calming meds and gave her a couple, but I don't think they did much. She went out in the afternoon, heard a bottle rocket and ran to the door, scratching and nudging to get it open. :\

She basically laid on top of me the whole night. At least she didn't shake.

Jackson was actually fine last night, but there was nothing loud near us. There was big ones over the trees but you could barely hear them. And I kept him inside while we lit off our wimpy ones in the backyard. Our house was loud because we had all of our different AC units and fans going and the TV so I honestly think he had no idea. Lol. Which is great because he is sensitive to gun shots, thunder, fireworks etc.

Yea around 4-5 pm when the kids in the neighborhood started really getting going shooting stuff off, I closed up the house and had the window AC units running so it helped drown everything but the really loud stuff out.

Payton never used to care but since the roofers were here and created some "PEOPLE ARE ON THE ROOF IT'S TERRIBLE I WANT TO EAT THEM" phobia, he doesn't like thunder or fireworks. He had a bit of a rough time Wednesday when people were shooting them off so I started playing loud music, then watched The Avengers really loudly, and by then he was okay.

Pepper was hanging out with my mom and Georgie and every time a firework popped she would jump and run around the room, which is actually surprisingly well handled for her considering it's Pepper.

Both of them actually did okay last night though. They were setting them off throughout the day and night (my dad said he was awake at 4:30AM and could still hear them) so I don't know if they just kind of got acclimated to it or not. Payton was a bit twitchy for a little while around 9PM or so, but he settled down after that.


OTOH nobody RIGHT nearby us was setting them off. I was over at my house working and I'm glad I didn't take Payton with me, because the people behind my next door neighbours were setting them off over our backyards. As in fireworks were exploding in my backyard, and debris was landing on my carport. It was REALLY loud and I imagine if he had been over he'd been having a seriously hard time. =/

For the first time in 8 years Abby slept through the fireworks!


She started off a little stressed, but strapped on her thundershirt and gave her some benadryl and once that apparently kicked in she was perfectly fine chilling in the room with my sister while fireworks were still going off

The rest of the crew could care less about fireworks/loud noises in general, but this is huge for Abby

Badly. C locked him in a crate. I almost came home but realized that wouldn't help.

Fine. They all sat on the porch with me and watched them.

Blaze did fine. Just some going off in the distance, no big deal.

Lizzie, on the other hand, was pretty freaked out. But she's always been somewhat noise phobic, mainly with thunder. She didn't settle down for a few hours but then finally did around 11.

Hudson likes to bark at them the first few times they go off, just to tell them to keep their distance, but is otherwise fine. The neighbors have been setting them off most nights for the past few days.
