Sounds as if you havenīt been having much fun Mags, perhaps you should change your name
Hope the trip will be a happy one and you do meet old and new friends.

Hi Maggie, not going to the fireworks as we now have a 5 month old labrador puppy who is not keen on loud noises yet.

I heard you hadn't been well but glad you are recovering and back on the road, we missed you this year. Malvern and Lincoln were really good, the raffle at Lincoln raised Ģ95 but would have been more had you been there😁 Tell Bernard he missed a cracking tabletop sale with lots of bargains.

Never mind, hopefully we will meet up again next year.
Have a good Christmas and have a happy, healthy New Year xxxx

Is it better to beg forgiveness than to ask for permission?

I donīt know how familiar you are with doggy behaviour.
My tip, donīt allow yourself to react in anyway to the noise, carry on doing whatever you normally do when the noise is going on, donīt pick puppy up and cuddle it during this time, but maybe you already know all this.

We do try to ignore any loud noises and after having new doors and windows this week her behaviour has been severely tested. She did really well but a few nights ago some early fireworks a few doors away when she was out for a wee spooked her a bit. I have played a few YouTube videos of fireworks to try and desensitise her but I think I may have left it a bit late.

I will try and carry on as normal but living where we do I know they are going to be loud and long. I will let you know how she gets on.

Thank you for your interest.

When we first had Shade our GSD, whenever there were fireworks or thunder storms we would play with him, he loves chasing balls, one night there was a thunder storm in the middle of the night so he brought his ball to us in the bedroom
None of our dogs have been frightened of firework or thunderstorms because of our behaviour during the noisy times.

For any of you down in the south, the Lewes bonfire night is the best of them all.a collection of bonfire societies all dressed up and parading though the town.each having their own firework display. These days though there is no throwing a blazing tar barrel into the river.

Don't be silly all the time ask your question.

Unfortunately Tango (little sh*t) died in March, we took her to Tattersall with us but 2nd day there she made her own arrangements. She was just 1 week off her 19th birthday, she had a good innings and now has a permanent pitch in the woods at Tattersall park in Lincoln. It was tough getting used to live without her but now we have Lottie, she is a 6montb old black labrador. George is besotted with her. She has taken over our life not to mention wallet.

Glad to hear you are back mobile and hopefully we will meet up next year somewhere.
Take care.
Love to Bernard xx
