She is afraid of bangs

Happy happy 4th of July dear friends.
We got an inch of rain last afternoon !!!!!!!  Praise the LORD!!!!!  Zoie has been with us 8 months today and yesterday in all that time we had had no thunder and lightening!!  But yesterday afternoon I found out just how afraid she was of loud bangs!!!  Then to top it all off after the storm people started setting off fireworks and we could hear them loud and clear.  Poor Zoie,  BIG Zoie,  jump the fence Zoie wanted to be between my legs all afternoon and evening!!!!  She was so afraid !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Well we have learned more about Zoie!!!!! 
Hope you enjoy your day today.  It is date night for Tom and I.  We have been having our date nights for almost 30 years now!!!!  Still look forward to them too!!!
Love coming your way,  Zoie & Fern

  4. Fern, Happy 4th of July. It is so sweet that you still have date nights. Poor Zoie; all of our other dogs were also terrified of fireworks and I began to hate the neighborhood ones. I understand when town has them but still it is so hard on the pets. Our Hunter will be safely in his crate tonight while we are at a concert, music will be playing so hopefully he won't hear any.
    Hugs, Noreen & Hunter

  5. We feel bad for all the animals when it storms. I don't like thunder either and run to the basement and get under the recliner it's so scary.

  6. Happy Independence Day. I am not afraid of bangs. MOM says I don't even flinch. But I have friends who are scared of them. My friends peeps turn on the tv when the fireworks go off so they don't notice the booms as much.
    Blessings,
    Goose

  7. Poor Zoie. I don't blame her for being afraid of the loud bangs. Fireworks and thunder send my cats under the bed. They won't even come out to eat!
