Dixie is so frightened of the fireworks tonight!

My poor baby is just shivering and panting under my desk! We've snuggled in a blanket and tried to drown out the noise but she's still a wreck.

I knew she was afraid of thunderstorms but this is much worse. I dont' really know what to do. I feel like we're at Epcot's Illuminations! Most everyone on our block is outside lighting something in the street. We live hear the Melbourne Causeway and the city had a half hour *real* fireworks display at 9:00. I thought we were home free until the neighborhood celebrations began. I think the had a big tent at the beachside Walmart this year.

I suppose it's lots of fun for most ...but Dixie is not amused.

By the way ...Belevedere is on his chaise lounge, on the patio, watching the sky. He seems more curious and "on guard" than scared. Go figure!

Tootie is strange....she doesn't even seem to notice or care about the fireworks. And we have professional-grade fireworks being launched all over our subdivision.

We are sure lucky! The dog my family had most of the time I grew up was so bad with fireworks that we actually had to put her on tranquilizers the week or so of July 4th just to get her through. One year she actually clawed a hole thru the wall in the basement where we had her corralled. :roll:
