The Fourth of July is coming up, and, like it or not, that means fireworks. This week's question is how do your dogs tolerate fireworks and other strange noises? Do they hide behind the bed? Do they bark? Do they try to run away? Or are you one of the lucky ones whose dogs ignore strange noises?
More importantly, have you successfully conditioned your dogs to tolerate noise? What did you do?
PICTURES OF THE WEEK
Last week's theme was special-needs dogs, and Snowgoose stole the show with this great shot of Patch, her blind border collie, and Abby, the pound dog who keeps Patch company. You've gotta love the relationship between these two dogs, and the dedication this family shows to provide a great life for a blind dog.
First, there's S. Camp's pooch who loves to ride and is ready to go in a pair of doggles. I've never figured out if they're practical or for show, but this pooch sure pulls off the look. S. Camp adds that the unnamed pup always wears a seat belt in the car.
Next up is Polly & Emma maneuvering for control of the blue chair. In this shot, Emma is winning. You gotta love when dogs play nicely. Thanks, Linda.
Then there's Foster the Australian Shepherd nose-to-nose with a moose. Thankfully, there's a fence. The only name submitted with the photo was the owner of the house Foster was visiting, Virginia. I heard a rumor that moose could hop fences that size. Anybody know if there's any truth to it?
PICTURE THEME OF THE WEEK
Action shots. I know, I've held this theme before, but I want to see shots of dogs running and swimming and just being dogs. As usual, the theme ends after the first update of the gallery on Mondays.
