Happy Birthday U.S.A.




Hi Y’all!



Happy July 4th USA!  

At the shore we have huge private fireworks displays up and down the waterfront.  The Humans love sitting in the bedroom or living room and watching the ones our neighbor’s brother, across the water, puts on! 



Sadly it isn't just the dogs the fireworks bother...the huge herons and egrets roosting in the trees and other birds and waterfowl flee their roosts, screaming in fright and shedding feathers in their haste to depart.

Here in the mountains the unexpected sound of a gunshot reverberating off the mountains, sounding as if someone was standing beside you, is more likely to startle, because rarely do you hear even a firecracker. 


In the towns there are firework displays and parades.  

Since I've gotten older I don't like the sound of fireworks and retreat to my crate.



Today I’m joining Slim Doggy, Peggy’s Pet Place and To Dog With Love in Fit Dog Friday blog hop!

I’m also joining the Pet Parade Blog Hop hosted by Rascal and Rocco and co-hosted by Jan's Funny Farm, Basil the Bionic Cat, Barking from the Bayou, and Love is being Owned by a Husky!



Y’all have a great weekend and stay safe!!!












  1. Happy Fourth of July! Katie doesn't like the fireworks since she got older either. We are home and can watch them from out house, but not big fans of all the stuff, neither is Mom. Enjoy the day!

  2. Have a wonderful 4th of july! as wonderful as on your photos. #3 brought some tears to my eyes, that's such a touching photo.

  3. Happy 4th of July, say safe buddy and I hope the fireworks don't scare you.

  4. We don't ever go out to the displays. Monty has become more nervous over the years and we stay home and make sure he is okay.

    Happy July 4th!!
    I hope your 4th has been a fun and enjoyable one. For the first time in 7 years we've had fireworks set off in the field next to us. I was totally unprepared, and our boy Sunny has been hidden in the bathtub. I feel bad for him, and everything else like your birds that are so afraid of them.... Take care, okay?

  11. Hawk, I am so glad you are in the mountains where it is peaceful and cooler. Hope you had a wonderful 4th and are enjoying the long weekend!
