Protecting Our Beloved Dogs on the 4th of July


Every 4thof July we have to be aware of making plans so that we are home by dark.  Our dog, Bello, is so sensitive to the sounds of fireworks going off, that if we don’t come home by the time the fireworks start, then he will suffer.  We didn’t know this when got him, and so we put Bello outside on his leash when we went to celebrate with some friends that first year.  We came home with our front door bent, the screen ripped, and poor Bello’s paws all bloodied!  I am sure everyone who owns a dog or puppy will take care of their beloved pet, but when I saw this article on the Humane Society of the United State’s website, I thought I would pass it along.  Oh, and here is a picture of a very happy Bello!

About Sadhvi

Sadhvi's trying to find the balance in life over 50 without having any surgery, taking any pills, or killing anyone. She doesn't want to look or feel the way she felt when she was 20 or 30. Trusting that everything is really OK unless you think about it helps her make it through each day. Also realizing that nothing can be done, and, that nothing matters really helps. Gardening (and weeding), poppies and flowers, painting on things, baking, and sharing on Oops50 helps to make it all right too.

One thought on “Protecting Our Beloved Dogs on the 4th of July

  1. Sadhvi, thanks for posting this! Our dog, Rufus, got so freaked out by a fireworks display at my husband’s family farm that he ran away and ended up entangled in a barbed wire fence, about a mile down the road. He didn’t have any serious injuries, but we were lucky even to find him.
