My Dog is Scared of Fireworks

This is my dog Ein yesterday. My whole neighborhood was setting off fireworks and firecrackers. He was freaking out pretty much the whole night. Pacing, panting like crazy and shaking. I felt so bad for him. I had gotten him a Thundershirt and that seemed to help a little but I felt so bad for him. We ended up giving him some Benadryl to help him calm down and that seemed to help a little bit more.

Jäger on the other hand could of cared less about the fireworks. Him and M were running around the front yard after M got home and he was having a blast. And this is the dog and is otherwise a bit of a pansy when it comes to stuff that scares him. Although he is a rescue so I think that might be part of it. His mom and his litter mates were found underneath a house. I’m hoping the Thundershirt will help him when we take car rides. He tends to get very anxious and shake a lot. Ein on the other hand loves them.

I’m hoping my neighborhood isn’t partying as hard as they were last night again tonight. But only time will tell. Fingers crossed that they aren’t.
