They started around here about 9pm ! and Lily started to pant real hard and became an instant velcro dog. What do any of you do when your dog is afraid of something like firecrackers that keep happening hour after hour? The worst part was I had to take her outside to pee (on a leash, we don't have a fenced in yard).... well, she decided, no thank you! I can hold it and pulled me like a little clydsdale right back to the door. Finally, later she managed to put her big girl panties on and take a quick one in the near corner of the yard. I really feel for her and all of the dogs that are skittish with loud noises like firecrackers and thunderstorms. Anyway, did any of you have problems with new year's eve and your dogs?
