FarmWife has disliked this holiday ever since her childhood dog, Brumby, suffered a collapsed lung and other ill effects. He was a ridgeback/weimaraner cross, and he feared loud noises. He escaped despite precautions on the 4th of July, and was found car-struck and damaged the next morning. He lived, but not all lost pets do.
Thankfully, we pets of Bent Barrow are a brave lot. Explosions don't scare us (though Paisley, who's deaf, would probably jump out of his skin if only he knew). Still, we're careful . . . the dogs and goats all have ID on 24/7, and I too wear ID when I'm out of the paddock.
Humans, enjoy your festivities responsibly. Don't drive under the influence, don't start a wildfire, and don't scare the animals unnecessarily. We depend on you to keep us safe.
