I hope this is true Mick and we never get fireworks here in Bulgaria, like we have in the UK.
I know lots of people who have very very frightened pets, and it is a nightmare for us.
My dog had to be drugged to get her through the fortnight we have to suffer fireworks in the UK and it is not a nice sight, but is preferable to hyperventilating, crying and trying to squeeze herself into small places in an attempt to feel safe.
I once lost Kassie whilst out on a walk, when a group of school kids on their lunch hour let off a rocket, she was a bag of nerves, every car and house door that shut with a bang and she was off, it is really very stressful for our pets and us to see them going through it.
I like fireworks as much as anyone but why they have to be so loud I will never understand.
On New Years Eve here in Bulgaria, we celebrated dancing the hora in the centre and there were bangers being thrown onto the ground (which was dangerous as they were bouncing while live and there were lots of children who could pick them up) but I went home to check on Kassie as we live very close to the centre and although she was a little unnerved she calmed down very soon unlike in the UK when she refused to go out for days, even getting her to go to the toilet was stressful.
We had a wonderful time, without the need for these huge explosions and I really hope this will continue to be the case as this is one issue in the UK which makes me very angry and upset when I have to see my pet suffering so much.
