I am so lucky that to have a big, strong and brave puppy dog by the name of Mr. Wesley to protect me on the fourth of July. Where I live, there people who buy lots fireworks and enjoy setting them off again and again and again. Why? Because that is what patriots do on the fourth of July.
Whenever there is a series of loud pop pop pop sounds or what might be a muffler backfiring, Mr. Wesley pays me a special visit to make sure i am not scared. He also inspects the bathroom to make sure there are no monsters in there because monsters like hiding in bathrooms when they heard pop pop pop sounds or backfiring mufflers.
When the fireworks come out at night–like they did the night before the fourth of July, Mr. Wesley’s guard goes up. He will sit right next to me or on the bed and make sure I am not scared. Few dogs would do that for their people which goes to show how considerate Mr. Wesley is for my welfare. Having him around makes me feel safe in case any sudden noises take place in the neighborhood.
Making sure people are not scared when scary noises happens runs in Golden Retrievers. Yalu was just like Mr. Wesley. Whenever there were loud noises, Yalu was right there to make sure I was never scared. The only difference was that she would try climbing up to my head and try to become a coon skin cap when the loud noises came.
