REMINDER: Pets and Vets (Veterans) Don't Like Fireworks

Pets and Vets don't like fireworks. Pets are afraid of fireworks, so below are some safety tips and precautions you can take. (Unfortunately if you live in a neighborhood with people who are inconsiderate, try to generate white noise and even give your pet a Benadryl to make them sleepy (1 tab over 30 lbs, 1/2 tab under 30 lbs).
  Veterans who suffer from PTSD (post-traumatic stress disorder) are also afraid of fireworks, as the loud noises can trigger the PTSD. If you live in a neighborhood with a veteran, or where there are pets, please, please be considerate and do not light off loud fireworks.

Gift/Memorial Suggestions

Several of our friends have lost loved ones (human and pets) and we found that one of the best ways to honor their memory is to give to an animal charity.
What better way to recognize a life of love, than by giving another life a chance for love?
We donate to many animal rescues, but because we volunteer with
DC Weimaraner Rescue and Coast-to-Coast Dachshund Rescue, those are our 2 favorites.
Consider giving the chance of life to a dog or cat.
