Crazy dogs, fireworks and insomnia

NOTE: This post originally ran here 4 years ago, and I thought it might be fun to share it again.

Never be fooled by an innocent little face, this dog is a madman!

…and I must add that cute only goes so far!

Over the past several nights, people in the area have been testing out their fourth of July fireworks, including firecrackers, cherry bombs and M-80’s.  They begin in the afternoon and continue throughout the evening, making this crazy mutt go more and more insane.

Oh, and did I fail to mention what happens when the big fireworks show kicks off at around 9:30 or so?  Bedlam!

Running around the house, jumping up on people, panting, whining, scratching, ripping things up…  Does it ever end?

When things finally wind down sometime after 11, he settles down… and then the neighborhood dudes with firecrackers resume their assault on the night.  Bedlam reigns in the house into the wee hours.  The dog jumping on your face just about the time you think you might get to sleep some time after 3 am… (isn’t there an ordinance or something about shooting off firecrackers at 3 am?)

In our house, the week of the fourth of July each year is sometimes called “Nights of Rage”

Oh, how much fun this is!

Yes, I know this is not like my usual post, but who can think when they haven’t slept in days? Hopefully the folks in the area will run out of either ammo or money soon…

    The doggie…..the most vicious biters sometimes. Not merely defending, either. One learns things when doing rounds as a salesman or as an evangelist. Next on the list: Labrador.
