Today is July 4th in the USA. Which means fireworks. We once knew of a dog that got so scared it took off running, and got … well, it didn’t surive the mad dash from the booms and pops. Our dog, Webster, is petrified of the fireworks. He lowers his head, his tail sags, and he heads for the basement in the hope of distancing himself from the sounds. Now that he’s nearly deaf, however, we’re wondering if he’ll hear them tonight. One advantage of being deaf, perhaps? Does your dog get scared? (I assume cats don’t care, as they don’t seem to get too worked up about much.) Any tips?
