My dog, Max, hides in the closet at the sound of thunder, so I am sure that tonight will be filled with trepidation for him.
He's an inside dog, but that isn't good enough for him. He'll be under a chair (he's 60 pounds!), or in the closet, or hide in my bathroom. He's a rescue so who knows what happened to him before he was 10 months when I got him, but I ALWAYS know when a storm is coming because he starts hiding. HAHA
He's definitely better than the weather man!

Very good advice. Wish more people would understand that animals can be afraid of things too !! Happy 4th to all. Be safe, and keep your pets safe.

Max is an indoor only cat so he'll be safe. We have a few neighbors that will be celebrating but it's not usually too loud or for too late an hour.

" My goal is to live the truly religious life, and express it in my music. If you live it, when you play, there's no problem because the music is part of the whole thing. To be a musician is really something. It goes very,very deep. My music is the spiritual expression of what I am--my faith, my knowledge, my being." by John Coltrane

Thank you for your post. I so agree. I have one little guy that is terrified of them.

Remember to keep your animals safe from fireworks today. If you have outdoor pets, bring them in tonight or make sure they have a safe outdoor shelter to go to. Many dogs and cats are scared of the sounds and bright lights of fireworks and may be likely to act erratically. This can cause them to run away, run in front of vehicles or other things they may not normally do. Keep them safe, they are members of your family!
