Last night right around midnight, people in our neighborhood started shooting off fireworks and firecrackers. Missy is afraid of her own shadow most of the time and she shot into the house as if shot out of a cannon....trembling and inconsoleable. I noticed belatedly that there were little piles of "gifts" on the tile and went to get paper towels to clean it up. As soon as I opened the door to the garage she shot out into the garage and sat, stood, cringed by my car door, then standing like "let me in!" I got her and headed back into the house only to have Chelsea slip out into the garage. I was panicking because I thought at any moment dh might get home from his AA meeting and raise the garage door and then I'd have one or both of them shooting out into the neighborhood!! After several times of them switching who had escaped into the garage, I had everyone inside and saw more "gifts" on the kitchen floor and someone had peed all down the hallway. I finally got everything cleaned up and then sat on the couch with all three dogs slammed up against me and Missy vibrating the entire couch. DH didn't get home for at least another hour and the dogs were still unnerved and Missy still shaking like an earthquake. I don't think she was like that last 4th of July, but maybe I just don't remember. I was afraid she wouldn't even want to go back out this morning....and granted, she is still unsure, but she did go out. Poor thing!! But, I kept asking myself what was up with her wanting IN my car? She doesn't like traveling!! More Saturdays than not she has thrown up in her crate when we've gone to obedience class....so that "wanting in the car" is kind of lost on me. I need a country house far removed from idiots setting of noisemakers without regard for other people's sanity!!! Grrr!
