Happy New Year! Or, as Chaz sees it, the longest, most annoying night of the year. Worse than the 4th of July.
This beautiful, busy, protective dog hates two days a year, and this is one of them. Fireworks displays annoy him, firecrackers cause him to run and bark, and gun shots make him charge and snarl and bark in protest.
We protect him from himself on these nights, trying to keep him where it is not so loud. He will have a day of recovery tomorrow, from all this noise and activity tonight.
We are so pleased to be here another year. This is the 6th time we are here to see the fireworks display of Ski Roundtop from the comfort of our bed. 6 winters here! Time flies.
Happy New Year. And rest easy tomorrow.
