We have 2 rescue dogs – Murphy is very mellow and calm and Lucy is not.
She is afraid of everything and suffers from extreme separation anxiety. She is especially afraid of loud noises.
The 4th of July is her worst nightmare.
Fireworks terrify her and she spends most of the day under the couch. We try to take her outside, but if a firecracker goes off before she relieves herself, she races for the door and will not come back. She trembles so hard, you can see it across the room.
We live in the country and it is not unusual to hear a shotgun fire. Same thing. Poor Lucy
