I took Lion and Penny on a walk today at the park right outside of my apartment complex, where we go every day. While I was walking by the little picnic tables, I noticed some kids (probably middle school aged) setting off fireworks, so I tried to walk quickly by. One of the lovely children proceeded to throw a crackling, screaming firework right in my direction! Needless to say, Lion and Penny were terrified. I wanted to march up there and say something, but the dogs were so scared and pulling towards home on their leashes. What a way to ruin a walk! I am not looking forward to Monday when there will be many more fireworks. Is anyone else dreading the 4th of July?
