    Poor Clover

    Don't let the barking get to you or worry about your neighbours complaining or anything, it's to be expected with all the racket outside.

    It's mad here too but I've got music on to drown them out (Nickelback) and you've seen the size of my speakers :lol:

    I do feel for you.

    My Mums old Staff used to be a wreck with anything like fireworks or guns etc. She used to wee herself sometimes.

    Its a dreadful time of year for the poor suffering doggies. :(

    I hate fireworks! I am very fortunate that Sully isn't bothered by them (thank god because he was neutered today), they are going off like crazy here.

    We had a family dog a collie x rescue who was so scared of fireworks that he would literally wet himself, I spent every November and new years just hugging him because it was the only thing that would calm him down, ever since then I have despised fireworks.

    Well I thought my fur baby would be fine as we get them going off in the summer. But poor lad is frantic,dashing at the patio doors and barking, but there are a lot going off at once. Hubs is trying to placate him by letting him cuddle up on the sofa. :cryin:

    I cannot believe that fireworks are permitted to be used until 11pm at night and I personally think fireworks should be banned in built up areas.

    we've got a lot going off round here tonight - and they're supposed to be banned from our park and the one next door because there's so many mobile homes with wood cladding.

    Luckily Angus couldn't care less and is sound asleep upside down on the settee just now but his friend along the road has been struggling for the last couple of days and the worry is that the stress will trigger a cluster of seizures.

    We have not had any fireworks tonight:thumbsup: I am amazed they have been going off every night for over a week, tonight because it is sort of bonfire weekend I expected loads but no all lovely and peacful. I suppose they will make up for it tomorrow and there will be lots but hey ho at least we have had one quiet stress free evening!
