    the neighbours are blasting fireworks for some reason or another - and Mika is not scared!!!! Imagine a nearly 7 month old puppy and hes not afraid of a blast of fireworks! Dante is scared of them and woody used to be...but then he got older and didn't care. And Mika is just...wow he's not scared of fireworks i'm so pleased :)

    That's great Sophie's terrified of them she hides in her crate whimpering its hard to watch. It doesn't bother the other 2 luckily.

    Mika barked...i'm not sure if it means he's scared or not but at least he didn't run away and hide :)

    He must be brave. Even I get scared of them sometimes! Cheeko wasn't too bad to begin with but he's got worse as he's got older. His walk that normaly takes 10 minutes takes 5 minutes when there's fireworks he walks soo fast. Don't really understand why people would be letting fireworks off just now though :confused:

    I think when they bark they are kind of having a go at the firework! That's what it's like with Jed anyway, I think he is trying his best to be brave and tell it he is bigger!

    People always stop at or not long after 11 so you don't report them for anti social noise. Here the speakers hang out the window music blaring, stops dead on 11 and starts again about 8:30am. Hope they don't set anymore off :)

    None of mine have ever been scared, when we got molly in september her nature was very different to the other , more nervous when the end of october arrived she was only about 14 weeks. I used to walk outside with her with the fireworks began leaving the door open so she could escape inside if she needed, and with every bang and screech she just stood still looking around, by bonfire night she was walking out just as our elder one and our first one had, no problems just accepted it by this time as the norm. I think its very important to get them used to fireworks from an early age, as important as it is if not more than the everyday occurances.
