This photo was from our "blog party" photo shoot. I didn't make them wear hats while they were scared. Zoe is doing her "cover the nose" pose which sort of makes her look pitiful which was pretty much how our day went yesterday with the fireworks. So the photo works well for this post.
Yesterday was the scariest day of the year for pets everywhere and my girls were no exception. We weren't able to go outside very much throughout the day because everyone was lighting fireworks off at random. Around 7:30pm I gave both dogs benadryl, melatonin and valerian root. Zoe wore her thunder shirt and Phoenix wore the anxiety wrap that we reviewed a while ago. By 10pm the fireworks got really bad and neither dog was very happy but we did a bunch of CC and they did okay. Zoe mostly wanted to be left alone but Phoenix wanted to cuddle. It was interesting because this is the first time Phoenix has ever been upset about the bangs and I was not expecting that. Usually she doesn't care. I really hope everyone used up all of their fireworks and that the bangs will stop. Watching my dogs freak out is not very fun for me. :( I think next year I'm going to get some heavier duty drugs from the vet.
Thank you all so much for stopping by yesterday and wishing us a happy blogiversary! I really appreciate everyone's kind words! <3
