Keep in mind, fireworks that shoot into the air in my state are illegal.
It was a loud night in my neighborhood last night. I think some of my neighbors where trying to outdo the city for fireworks. For not being able to "go anywhere" due to covid and stay at home orders, there sure were a lot of fireworks. (I am guessing many went to our neighboring states when they were opened back up. Now, I am used to my neighborhood being "under fire" on the 4th. It is something that just happens and you deal with it living here. Someone in the neighborhood even shoots them off about every weekend from Memorial Day to Labor Day. This year was something. I think people spent all their vacation money on fireworks. Never had we had this many. By the debris in the streets this morning, there were some good parties. Thankfully most of the neighbors were done by 11pm so kids could go to sleep. A few were after that time and even fewer after midnight. Now to those who shoot them off at 2am randomly, I have some words for you. Yes, my community can call the police. What's the point? It is hard to tell for sure where they come from if you are not outside to see it. By the time the police arrive, the people have stopped shooting them off. To those who bought and set off fireworks, I hope you got your money's worth (being you must have spent a lot). Happy birthday America! My neighborhood sure celebrated you last night. Here's to another year.
So glad my dogs weren't all that bothered. My golden a few years ago would have been hiding in the tub. My papillon just stuck close or went under my bed (this is new for her). My cavalier is going deaf so she never noticed. My GSD only was bothered with the smell when I had him out. I am lucky compared to other's as far as dogs go.
