Unhappy 4th of July!


At the risk of sounding unpatriotic (and either you are with me or you are against me), I hate the 4th of July. It's my least favorite holiday. Why? FIREWORKS. Hate 'em. I hate the firecrackers that make the popping sounding. I hate the fireworks with their booming noise. And I hate it when they make that squealing across the sky sound.

The only good part about the 4th is the BBQing.

Holidays I like: Thanksgiving, Christmas, my Burpday, Valentine's Day, Mother's Day, Arbor Day (I love the trees for providing shade to rest in and places to pee).

Holidays I dislike: the 4th, President's Day, Father's Day (guilty feelings), Labor Day (school is starting).

I'm on the fence about: Halloween (involves candy but I can't have chocolate anyway. And there was also that year I got dressed up by a ladybug. The horror!), Easter (I've yet to find that d*mn gigantic rabbit or the eggs he is supposed to leave around our lawn).

And we were supposed to get TROUTS for breakfast but then my ma ape forget to freeze them so we had fillet mignon instead. And it had better stop raining so we can BBQ. I saw shrimps.

I actually don't mind the fireworks for some reason...just as long as they're not exploding over my head while I'm making a deposit - hehehe!

Oh Wally, Your mom should have sent you up here for the day. We have no fireworks on the 4th of July. Oh .... wait .... it's a Wednesday. Hmmm. You'd hate it here in the summer. We have fireworks every Wednesday and Saturday for the international fireworks competition. Fortunately, I never notice.

Wally: If it keeps raining, there might be fewer fireworks and you probably get the shrimps anyway! Happy 4th

I don't mind fireworks either... I'm surprisingly calm when those booming stuff are going on up in the sky. I just mind my own business, hehehe!

Love licks,

I'm not sure how I feel about fireworks and there is this festival every year down the street a little where they do fireworks at 10pm every night for like 5 nights so it sounds like a war zone but I just eat my chewies and my mom hates it during the finale when there is no wind because the finale is just smoke then - whatever.

Im not a big fan of the 4th either-- last year, my first 4th EVER and I got stung by a bee-- and went into anaphlactic shock...went to the hospital..almost died and cost my parents a TON of money..and ruined there little 'get together'. So- i guess I know this year will better!

No kiddin' Wally. I call the 4th "Sit on Mom's head & squish her" day. Lola's scared for fireworks too.

Why isn't everyday Thanksgiving or burpdays??? Now those are COOL days! I hope it starts raining here...maybe then the bangs will be quiet.

BTW...I stole Mom's plastic card & bought you a super cool pressie! Can you give my Ma your addy & I'll send it to you. ferndoggleblog at yahoo dot com.

Wally, I am not afraid of fireworks, but I would hold your paw if you needed it.

We go to the parking garage at the UW that has a nice view of the lake union fireworks.

Last year, n.mom held me up so that I can see them. I weigh too much now.

I think everyday should be wallyday.

Ernest, who is very hot here today.

We HATE the booms. Dot and Tucker have taken their magic groovy pills so they won't care.

How was the BBQ?

Woober Butt,

Thanks for your color commentary on holidays. You are a dog of very decided tastes.

Me?? Luckily I don't pay much attention to fireworks. In the small town surrounding GooberStan it is actually legal to set off fireworks from July 3-5! (stoopid hooman rednecks!) I've gotten used to the noise, but it smells and looks like a war zone outside.

Stay cool, buddy boy. Love to Ethel and the apes!

Your goober,
Stanley

I don't like fireworks either, Wally. But at least I'm braver than my Mama's childhood dog, who, I am told, used to have seizures (yes, real ones) at the first sign of fireworks, balloons popping, or chewing gum bubbles bursting. But she was a great dog, despite her delicacy.

I just moved my blog over to blogger, and we read your blog so much that we put a link to it in my new blog. Come visit!
