Yes I said it. I hate fireworks. I haven't always hated them. Loved them when my kids were little and they enjoyed them. Now all of them are teenagers and not interested. That's not the main reason i hate fireworks. Not even an important one. The main reason I hate them is cause of my dog. I have a shi-tzu that is terrified of them. I mean he doesn't run under the bed to try to run away. He's the big bad wolf! He thinks if he puffs his chest and barks deep and loud , he can scare them away. It's annoying. He doesn't stop.
So this year we tried an anxiety medicine for him. Whoops! The doc gave us the wrong dose. So a day and a half later, he's walking around drunk. (Actually sort of funny). On the other hand it's kind of sad. I live in an area where people don't watch their teens like they should. Some people themselves just don't care ie.. fireworks at 1 am. Having to calm him down and see him struggle for over a day to even go to the bathroom is probably the main reason I am really starting to dislike fireworks. There I said it. The kid in me is finally getting older and it's scary.
