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!

Oh poor Dixie. I know how you feel. I used to have a daschund who was sooo afraid of thunder storm and fireworks. he would shiver the whole night (even after it's all ended, until the next morning).

Henrietta is okay with all the noises. I was out to check out the neighbor kids playing some fireworks. Henri wanted to come out with me, despite all the noises.
Winston was a bit shivering but remain calm (he tried so hard not to show that he was afraid) (man and his ego... :lol: )

Overall it was a good evening. Until someone still lit up a firework at 11 pm!! It's about time to go to bed, I have to go to work tomorrow morning. What a jerk....may be they don't have a job. :x
