The pop-pop-crack has started. This is the worst day of the year at the Haneberg household. Our 4 dogs and cat are all afraid of fireworks.
And they are not alone. The toll that fireworks take on animals is immense. Pets panic and run away. Many never get back to their families. The local wildlife is stressed out too. This is young chick season for many bird species and I imagine this is tougher on their tender ears.
There are many ways to celebrate. Let’s stick with the fun food, music, and such. Ban the fireworks.
And let’s be honest. The people who buy lots of fireworks are not rejoicing about America’s independence as they set off hundreds of dollars worth of explosives. They just want the thrill of blowing things up.
Houses burn down, people lose limbs and lives. Why do we continue with this stupid practice?
Gotta keep this short and check on my dogs. When the bangs get close, they physically start to shake. It is very sad.
