    Your neighborhood looks fun!!! Poor Bella, she seemed to handle them well though. And honestly if I was a dog, I wouldn’t know what to do either if out of the blue loud bangs started happening. I don’t really like them and I know what they are. Bella Rue and Arya don’t seem to notice fireworks much. But Red dog can hear them from miles away and immediately starts panting and shaking. We usually go camping just so we can avoid her being stressed out over them but this year crazy neighbors were setting them off for a WEEK and all week long we kept her inside, comfortable and as calm as she will be with loud bangs happening. It is the only thing we can do, keep them safe.

      Your poor pup! ๐Ÿ™ Yeah I heard the fireworks start around Wednesday last week…

    Glad Bella did okay! I swear our dog must have been deaf to fireworks because he used to sleep through them, and our neighborhood was like yours – tons of fireworks!

    I was in bed by 11, so yes, when did we get old?! Although I am probably 18+ years older than you, so I have that excuse! ๐Ÿ˜€

      That is great! Glad your dog slept through them.

    Poor Bella! Dogs hear so much better than we do, for us fireworks is loud, imagine how it is for them. Luckily our Bella isn’t really scared of fireworks but to be sure I keep her in the house almost the entire day on December 31.

    Looks like you had a great day with your friends.
