Perhaps we need to let off fireworks year round to desensitize them? Not that as a human I would enjoy that but I swear, these poor dogs cowered for a two straight hours as our neighbors let off continuous fireworks. As the night went on, they did loosen up a bit but Dude shook the entire time. That poor boy. He does it at thunderstorms too – Our only one that does.

Dewey braved the noise and went out in the backyard for a bit but he was clearly still a bit uneasy. Ginny had it totally right! She laid in the doggy beds in the kitchen, looking out the window to enjoy the light show. She apparently shared the experience with Mimosa. She was the only one that didn’t seem to be bothered one bit! It must have been all of those thunderstorms we had here was she was a young pup.
