Why the I think part? Well I am an Amish Country dog and it is so quiet there, so I am still trying to get used to the city sounds. I am starting to adjust to the firecrackers, I used to freak out! Now I go into my den and wait it out, just like when we have those loud thunderstorms. But it's the cherry bombs that really do me in, I am scared to death of that very loud BOOM! But, she is always with me and I don't go outside during that time so that's good. But I really don't like July 4th yet because it just takes some getting used to. So I'm taking one year at a time. Peace out!
