I've read a few posts on the effects fireworks have on animals and it reminds me how I got my wonderful dog,Nutsy!
On the 4th of July,'83 A cocker spaniel came staggering up Hazelwood,dehydrated,matted fur,and needing a bath. Well I thought I'd take her in,but Lady's owner-my friend Rocky- came and took her home. It seems he and a friend had been lighting off firecrackers the day before,Lady had been hiding under a bush,and the boys-all unknowing -set 1 off too near her. The blast scared her,and the concussion had some effect because she couldn't find her way home.
Well,we'd scheduled an appointment with a groomer and dad went to cancel it. It turned out the groomer who operated out of her home had 1 last little puppy out of a litter. A Manchy-Schnauzer mix!
