big time change of heart


correction. 4th of july is no longer my favorite howliday. oh, it was fine during the daylight when we ate snackies and both mommy and daddy were home all day long playing with me. and sure, i got a new dress and got to play with that flag thing. but once the sun started to set, the horrors started with all the loud and sudden BANGS and sophie took off for the closet and hid behind mom's clothes.

then things really took a drastic turn for the worse when daddy brought a big box out of the garage and started in himself with the loud BANGS! and this nasty, awful smell filled the yard and mommy didn't like it, either, and kept complaining about how they weren't making pretty lights in the sky. as if that would have made it all ok or something.

mom apologized for him this morning though, and promised me it would not happen again.... at least, not until next year. she offered to shake on it, but since she could only promise to try to talk some sense into dad and has no control over the rest of america, i gave her one of my hind feets to shake instead of my front paw.

Oh Coco, are you feeling better now? You could come over to Singapore. Fireworks are banned here. I mean normal hoomans (like those in the neighbourhood) cannot do those big bang stuffs. Only the relevant authorities can do so and it's usually set off only at big events like...erm..Singapore national day..which is next month 9th Aug!!

Hi, Coco.
I can't offer you to come here because the fireworks are banned too but people cracks them anyway!
Fortunatelly this is just once a year! Hope your are more relaxed now!

I'm so with you Coco on those nasty fireworks/firecrackers. They hurt my ears, made my throat all sore from barking and just overall stressed me out!

I hate 'em! I need to go sleep now.

Lots of Licks, Ruby

Good idea on the hinder feet shake.

We had assassins at our house too... Scary.

Oh I can't beleive your dad made those big bang noises. How awful of him.

Yeah, here in the UK there are lots of petitions to make it illegal to sell fireworks. I really hope they pass the law!
