Big Bada Boom Bada Bang!

So, here we are, July 4th weekend, the bane of many a dog, cat, ferret, or other non-human. For those of you who do not know what I speak of, just make sure that your pet is wearing an ID collar, has up-to-date microchip information, and is safely inside during the festivities.

We’ve been lucky this year and there were only a couple of pre-revelers setting off fireworks in the neighborhood the last couple of weeks. We played our “thunderstorm game” which I call Boom-Boom Treats. Yep, it’s simple – we hear the first distant boom, I excitedly ask them if they want boom-boom treats, and we run off to find the highest value tastiest treats in the house. It works pretty well for us at this point.

I thought I might add this reminder about all the foods, lots of which we’ll see at parties, picnics, and BBQs this summer, that are not good for our dogs. Pass it around ’cause our friends need to be educated about what is best for our kids too.
