Last weekend we had our Owen Junior Fair in town for three days and it included a display of fireworks. We know Amy got a little agitated during the fireworks last year. I was hoping she would brave it out and actually sit outside and watch it with us this year. Didn’t happen 😦
She came out to see what all the noise was about, but started panting and wanted to get inside the house. She also didn’t want to be away from me. So, I sat with her for a little while, hugging her. I also wrapped a towel around her, which didn’t seem to help.
I showed her she can hide in the rest room if she is scared and she understood what I was telling her. For the rest of the event, she hid in the rest room!
She was fine, but she didn’t want to let me out of her sight the entire evening. The next day we were watching a movie (The Kite Runner) that had some fireworks in it and Amy investigated the TV and Speakers and went to high alert mode. May be we can get her used to them.
