Last Monday I had to have my little pal put to sleep due to kidney failure. Up until he was about six years old he took very little notice of fireworks. But then just as we were leaving the house for his evening walk the clown who lives opposite left one of the super bangers off. It startled both him and me. He was always terrified of fireworks after that. My only comfort now is to know that he will not suffer that or any thing else now.
