Its Friday, the beginning of a long weekend and that means the fireworks are coming. Actually people have been letting them off for weeks now and I personally am sick of it all.
In a nutshell a waste of money which could be used on better things like donations to non profits, helping the homeless, helping shelters and so much more. I actually do not even want to go into this subject too much as my blood pressure goes through the roof.
So many pets get lost on 4th of July thanks to stupid owners who do not care for their pets by keeping them safe.
How to keep pet safe on 4th of July :
Never leave alcoholic drinks unattended where pets can reach them – these can be poison and make us very sick, death can also be possible
Do not apply any sunscreen or insect repellent product to your pet that is not labeled specifically for use on animals, this can also poison us.
Always keep matches and lighter fluid out of your pets’ reach – these can also make us sick
Keep your pets on their normal diet. This is important as a change of diet with all the stress from fireworks etc can cause indigestion and diarrhea
Never use fireworks around pets – these can cause severe burns, trauma to the face plus they contain toxic materials.
Loud, crowded fireworks displays are no fun for pets – leave your pets at home in a safe quiet spot, why traumatize them in this situation which is just being selfish and uncaring.
Be prepared in the event that your pet does escape – make sure your pet is wearing a collar with an updated tag, microchip is updated and BEST of all just keep your pet inside in a safe place where it cannot escape.
Now for some fun stuff – we had a very busy weekend last week, on Friday we went to the Trans March and Mom and I met the Mayor of San Francisco. She was nice enough to let us get a photo of her.
On Saturday we went to the Shi Tzhu meet up which was awesome as I saw all my friends that I have not seen in over a year, it was a fun fluffy morning. From there we went to another park for Storm and Dash’s Birthday Party. It was windy and freezing cold but so much fun to see so many people again and of course the dogs.
We had the pools out as we were hoping to swim but because of the cold we decided not to, Mom says I would have turned into a popsicle.
The pool we had was amazing though and cannot wait to try it out on a hot day. It is from a company called Pecute and they sell on Amazon. The pool is safe and made with a non toxic PVC material, durable with a nonslip bottom, it has quick drainage which is fantastic, an additional adaptor which will help you recycle the water and most of all it can be conveniently stored. For all those that have yards this is a must as it is big enough for us humans also.
We have the size XL which is large and comfy.
The company is giving a $10.00 coupon for all those that buy it by the 3rd of July which is a great money saver of course. Coupon on the link below.
We were given the pool to try out
So last weekend was busy but on Sunday Mom put her feet up and relaxed and I slept all day BOL as I was tired also plus I need my energy for this weekend adventures, not sure what they are.
On this note we want to wish everyone a Happy 4th of July, please keep us safe and have a wonderful family fun weekend,
With a woof and love from Layla
