We did have fireworks... this year, a family of... I mean no disrespect- rednecks- moved in. I was born and raised in rural Ohio, so I have some redneck in me as well. It is not a derogatory term, it's more of a descriptor of raisin' and culture. Anyway, they love their fireworks. And I begrudge no one fireworks on Independence Day or New Years Eve. But one of my dogs hates them, so I was laying on the floor with him, with some mellow music cranked up loud (but not loud enough to not hear the fireworks), with him shaking, until about 1am. We ordered a Thundershirt for him today.
