Happy 4th of July!

God Bless America and all but I'll be so friggin' happy when the morons in my neighborhood burn through their fireworks stash. Since when is it okay to set these things off until 3am on July 1st and 2nd when decent people have to get up for work in the morning. Oh and did I mention that my dog is completely stressed out by them. So in response he barks and paces every time he hears one go off. Tonight's going to be a long night.....

Hope everyone has the day off work like I do and enjoys it! And I apologize for my snarky mood. Must be the lack of sleep. :P

Girl, that makes 2 of us. I've had it with all this snap,crackle, pop, boom, flash, oh sh** I was JUST asleep what the HELL was that... and a dog that has been panting in a well air conditioned home (cuz he's stressed to the max). I hope it keeps raining tonight so I get some DANG SLEEP. I do have a 0530 wake up call tomorrow.

So how's that for moody?

Have a great day! I hope you and your little guy get some rest.

Taylor (my black Labbie) really stresses out when the neighbors set off their cherry bombs and firecrackers. I guess it doesn't matter to these yohos that ALL fireworks are illegal in this city, and we're having a drought! Hello! Where's the common sense, people?

Happy 4th! I think a bit of target practice might be needed to remind them who their neighbour is. I can relate...Daisy FREAKS when there is a thunder storm.

Keep smilin!

I hear you...or rather I CAN'T hear you from all the fireworks going off in our neighborhood. I'm sure it will be a sleepless night tonight!

Happy 4th - We are here in NJ for the month and I am holding Ms. Boo b/c she is absolutely freaking out with fireworks - I really hope it's just tonight. The town fireworks were cancelled due to wind so I was not expecting this noise!

I guess the firework problem is the same all over the country. Hope you got some sleep and your doggy too.

4th of July is no treat for my doggies either. Bernie usually goes under the bed and Gracie joined her this time.

Hope it was a good one and Grif survived without too much ado - poor guy.

OMG on Tuesday there were fireworks being done a mile from my house - only, you thought they were right outside because of how loud they were! My cats were freaking out. So was I...lol.
