We celebrated the Fourth of July at home yesterday, as mom doesn't like to leave me home alone during the fireworks, so she turned down plans to spend it with some friends. The weather was beautiful, 78 degrees. I played in the backyard while mom sunbathed. Then she BBQ'd a huge steak for the both of us - she gave me half of it!!! I got a bit of potato salad she made, too. (if mom's vegan dad is reading this, she RARELY has red meat so don't worry!)
Then after I had rested a bit (and she washed the car) I had more extended back yard play time to make up for a lack of a walk. Since fireworks had been going off all day around the neighborhood she didn't want to risk walking me & having me scared. I'm only scared of the really loud, booming ones. I told her I wanted to play fetch with this toy:
Throw it again!
Back to more play:
Surprisingly, later on when the fireworks got really loud (we could even see some from our front window!) I wasn't very scared & even went to sleep on mom's bed as usual, so I was a very brave girl :)
