I've always enjoyed the 4th of July except for last year. It is supposed to be illegal to explode fireworks in Seattle but there were so many explosions last year that my dog went crazy. Weird since the police always came to our house when our son was young and told us to stop shooting them off. Now that he's 29, he has no interest in fireworks but it seems like everybody in the neighborhood has developed an interest....and cops don't show up anymore. I heard that Ellensburg has a strict no fireworks policy so I'm thinking of spending the day there with my dog. How do the rest of you deal with fireworks and pets?
