Thunderbooms


Tonight is Guy Fawkes night, which means big fireworks in town, and little firecrackers in the neighbours gardens. Our vets emailed us advice, like stay inside, hide under the bed if you need to, and pee early in the evening. Of course as soon as the big display started in town, which sent big thunderbooms around town, well that's when I wanted to go outside. Once it finished I came in for a sleep. No thunderbooms are goin to keep me out of my garden.

New regulations have meant that shops can only sell fireworks 3 days before the 5th of November, and the shops seem to have reduced the amounts they sell by 80% compared to 10 years ago. So there were not too many in our neighbourhood.

Keep safe everybuddy.

  6. We hope the fireworks stop for you soon. They don't bother us too much, but then we don't like going out in the cold and dark!

  12. Fireworks doesn't sound very peaceful to me!
    Looks like you've assumed the perfect position though. Stay tight in your ball and all will be fine.

    Peace to you, Poppy Q.

  13. We can hear the fireworks. Even though they are not very close, they are still loud. We can't see them from the garden, but if we look out the window, we can see them up in the sky out over the river.

  16. Yes, selling less has helped us here, too. Our 4th of July wasn't so noisy this year. I didn't have to hide under the bed once.

    And I an see that my Stinky Sophie is going to look just like you when she grows up.

    Hugs and Peace

  24. What a brave girl you are, sweet Poppy. Special treats for you, love.
    Did your mum make toffee apples? Or is that too old fashioned.
