OMdOG what a night! I hardly slept...those darn fireworks kept me (Ruby's Mom: and Me) up all night! These things are scawie! Seriously anything that can literally scare the poop out of my BFF Suki is just not right!
From checking in with your blogs it sounds like a lot of you pups don't like them either. Why do the silly hoomans like them so much???
Mom took me to show me where people buy these darn things...here's a stand around the corner from where we live...
RIGHT AROUND THE CORNER!!! Oh, and just about every other corner too. What's so great about these things? My Mom and I Googled to see if we could find out. Here's something we found...
The day will be most memorable in the history of America. I am apt to believe that it will be celebrated by succeeding generations as the great anniversary festival...It ought to be solemnized with pomp and parade...bonfires and illuminations from one end of this continent to the other, from this time forward forevermore.So this Adams dude was talking about July 4th. Do YOU see anything about fireworks? No, but in the silly story (Ruby's Mom: Ruby, the story wasn't silly, it was very informative)we found that 'illuminations' means fireworks. I thought Illuminations was a candle store at the mall (my Mom told me to say that)...not those dreaded evil fireworks. So I guess everyone was so happy that they signed that Declaration thingy and won the war against the King that they started shooting these fireworks to celebrate!John Adams, July 3rd, 1776
Now I do like celebrating (especially if there are snackies involved)...but do we have to celebrate with these things? They are just so noisy and make me very jumpy, and I can't sleep because I'm afraid they are going to come and get me and my Mom (Ruby's Mom: Awww Ruby, thanks for protecting me, but it really isn't necessary. The fireworks aren't going to hurt us, especially when we are inside.)
So I don't think I like 4th of July anymore. At least not the fireworks part of it. Thank dogginess it's over!!! I'm going to go sleep now.
Note From Ruby's Mom, Michele: It was a really rough night for Ruby. The fireworks really freaked her out. Just when she would settle a new round would go off and get her going again. I think I need to take a page out of Tucker & Dot's Mom and get some special 'firework pills' from the Vet for next year.
