It turns out one of the traditions we humans love so much can be a terrifying nightmare for our four-legged friends. #StephenAtHome #Comedy #ColdOpen

    My friend’s lil dog has been too scared to go outside. They had to drop him off with her dad in the country (and no, that wasn’t just what they told the kids, lol). I dunno if there’s some group that’s decided this is the way to drive the cops crazy but they should know the cops don’t care. We heard fireworks going off during our walk but there was a cop just chilling on the college campus in his car. Spare the lil dogs, please. The pigs don’t give a crap.

    But I don’t expect the people doing this to care, either. Most likely it’s some edgelords who really think they’ve come up with a brilliant prank. Yeah, very original, kid, no one has ever lit illegal fireworks, you clever lil scamp. I know you don’t care, but people who make loud noises just to piss off other people are just compensating for a very, very, tiny… self-esteem.

    I love fireworks, they mask the sounds of gun shots in my neighborhood.

    I have been curious about that. I’m surprised it’s apparently so wide-spread! I thought it was just jerks in our neighborhood.

    The last few weeks, it’s been like clockwork! Right around 2-3 am, fireworks start being set off! Nothing too crazy booming loud, but still loud enough to freak out my poor dog! She’s a nervous nelly at the best of times, and these fireworks have been a nightmare for her!

    When the fireworks start up she comes racing into my room and curls up to hide in the corner where I’ve set up a little blanket fort thing for her. I get up immediately, close my window to muffle the noise, and put on some soothing music for her, just loud enough to drown out the booms. It usually takes her at least a half an hour to calm down, and it breaks my heart to see her so scared!

    I just want to know why they’re happening! Are they a protest? Are they just very persistent, drunk guys? Are people just stir crazy from being in their house for so long? What is the reason?!

    Luckily we haven’t experienced that here. But the dog is adorable. I have two. One loves fireworks, the other terrified by them. Màkes 7/4 interesting since I overlook Lake Union. Huge display on 7/4.

    Don’t understand how folks are allowed to set up fireworks sales in empty parking lots when they are illegal in my state. Cops must be looking the other way.
    I guess they need to have BLM signs instead of Fireworks signs to get their attention.

    Why are fireworks even legal? So stressful to companion animals and wildlife. And to humans! What happened to quiet summer nights? #FuckFireworks

    I don’t know how my dog would react to fireworks, but here’s a few things I do know:
    -She isn’t scared of the vacuum cleaner, but she doesn’t like it either. She thinks it is more of a combative rival than a monster, but there are times she just ignores it.
    -my dog is afraid of thunder, but definitely not that much as other dogs. She doesn’t have a terrified fit, thrash around, cry squeal, and hide under the bed, she just flinches, and gingerly trots over to the dining room table, which she promptly lies under, with a nervous and melancholy look on her face.
    – my dog has mixed opinions on different small animals in the woods. If a chipmunk or squirrel scurries across the ground 20 feet or so from the trail, she strains on the leash, pulls the person walking her that way, and barks, whereas if a garter snake crossed the trail five feet in front of her she’d either act like nothing was happening, or confusedly trace the reptile’s movement with her eyes until it is gone. I also have a pet lizard named Kim who lives in a terrarium on a table in my bedroom. My dog spends most of the night in my bedroom with me, sometimes on the floor, and sometimes curled up near my legs, and she never seems to sense the presence of her “cold-blooded stepsister” in the room where she sleeps.
    -my dog goes nuts when it comes to cars. Except she isn’t afraid of them, but just the opposite. She loves to ride in the car so much, that she’d get into basically any car if she wasn’t attached to her leash and the door was open long enough (seriously, I’ve seen her do it twice! The first time was when she got into the minivan owned by my friend Faith’s mom, and from the noises that came out of the vehicle a half-second after she embarked it, she was both terrorizing AND putting on a comedy show for Faith’s three younger siblings simultaneously, the second she was actually supposed to get in the vehicle, but she did it a little to eagerly, because the vehicle happened to be owned by our house-cleaner’s sister, Maria, who was going to take car with of her while me and my parents were on a one-day beach-trip. She leaped in the open door, (not-to-mention sat right in the front seat) WAY before we intended her to, but it all worked out.). I could even see her jumping into an SUV filled with heavily-armed Iranian terrorists if she had the chances!
    -my dog is mortally horrified by the life-size elephant sculpture (“Jumbo”) on the Tufts’ University campus, and I have no idea why.
    -my dog is not afraid being in water, although swimming doesn’t appeal to her. If you take a hike next to a lake on a hot day, she will likely leap in to it, and lie on her stomach, with her head and back sticking out above the surface, if you let her.
    -my dog has a psychotic hunger for murdering any small, flying insect she can detect, which is why almost all the bumblebees in the neighborhood probably have PTSD by now.

    My dog is a large, bronze-colored Labrador mix named Bree, by the way.

    New movement: I’m with the Pup- just say no to sky fire. Our therapy pets will need therapy. If I had a pet, he would be more worried about my weight gain and the chance of my sitting on him by accident.

    It is interesting that most conspiracy theorists have not yet taken note of the fact that most fireworks are made in China and they would also be an ideal means of spreading disease. My guess is that they like things that go bang so much that they have decided that it is worth the risk.

    Huh. This is the first I’ve heard of it. I haven’t seen any fireworks at all where I live. They legalized all that stuff here a few years ago, so it’s probably lost its appeal.
